Dallas Inadequate Security Attorney
Being safe is important wherever we go: to the mall, a hotel, a stadium or an office building. When a property owner fails to take reasonable steps to protect us from the risk of assault, robbery or rape, and we are injured as a result, the property owner may be liable.

Was the Property Owner Responsible?
No one is ever completely safe from the risk of assault. Sometimes property owners do everything they can to ensure the safety of guests, and an assault occurs anyway. However, property owners who fail to take reasonable steps to protect guests may be responsible for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
The following are examples of reasonable steps that property owners can take to protect guests:
- Hiring security guards
- Asking police to make extra patrols in high crime areas
- Providing proper lighting in parking lots, stairwells and building entrances
- Installing video cameras in areas where crimes have occurred
- Trimming bushes and shrubs that give attackers areas to hide
- Installing window and door locks in apartments and hotel rooms
- Stopping alcohol sales to intoxicated guests
The sooner you contact our attorneys, the sooner we can go to work building a strong case of liability against the property owner. This area of law is known as premises liability.
