Could a Property Owner Have Prevented Your Injuries?

When crime victims suffer serious physical and emotional injuries, they are rarely able to sue their attackers and obtain any meaningful compensation. In some cases, a third-party — usually a property owner — can be held partially responsible for crime-related injuries.

If you have been seriously hurt as a result of an assault, rape, robbery, or another type of crime, you may have a claim against the owner of the property where the crime occurred. You should discuss your options with an injury lawyer in New York City as soon as possible.

Some of the major reasons why property owners are held accountable for crimes include:

  • Broken locks: When residential landlords and hotel owners fail to replace broken front door and room locks within a reasonable period of time, they are putting their tenants and guests at a significantly higher risk of becoming crime victims.
  • Inadequate lighting: Parking lots and other open areas where people are likely to walk at night need to be lit well enough to deter criminal behavior. When they are not, it may be possible for crime victims to hold the property owners responsible.
  • Negligent security: When property owners know that crimes are repeatedly being committed on their properties, they are responsible for taking appropriate security measures in order to prevent those crimes from continuing.
  • Poor handling of conflicts: When fights start at nightclubs, bars, and similar establishments, the owners are responsible for taking reasonable steps to prevent those fights from getting out of hand. If people are removed, owners are responsible for ensuring that this is conducted safely for all involved.
