Whether it is a hotel, retail plaza, gas station, or apartment complex, property owners have an obligation to ensure that the premises are in a reasonably safe condition. This includes the duty to protect customers from foreseeable criminal attacks on their premises. Consider the following examples:
- Hotels, including the hotel parking lot, must have adequate security to protect guests and their property from assault, theft, and other crimes.
- Banks should have enough guards for the location and size of the branch.
- Gas stations must make sure that their customers can pump and pay for gas without being attacked.
- Landlords and property managers must provide residences with the right amount of security based on the crime rate in the neighborhood.
