Philadelphia Attorneys For Victims Of Criminal Attacks
While no business or property owner could possibly protect against every accident or crime, there are reasonable steps to take to protect those who are on their properties. These steps may include:
- Functioning alarms
- Camera and surveillance systems
- Adequate lighting
- Security guards
- Intercoms and buzzer systems
- Parking lot safety mechanisms
- Bouncers or other security for bars and nightclubs
Unfortunately, when these safety measures are not in place, innocent people can have the rest of their lives impacted through physical injuries and emotional trauma. Property owners should be held accountable.
