Texas, like other states, sees its fair share of accidents and violent crimes. While some accidents are nobody’s fault, others are preventable. When a property owner allows a dangerous condition to exist on their property, injuring another person, he or she may be liable under premises liability law. Failure to provide security is one of the most common complaints giving rise to premises liability. Many violent crimes that occur on public and private property can be prevented with a little security. Proper lighting, security cameras, and security personnel are instrumental in protecting the lives of people who must pass through the property. When landlords and property owners fail to provide any security, or when the means they employ are inadequate to meet the security needs of the building, people are more likely to be injured by the criminal acts of others.
Texas premises liability law allows injured victims to seek damages if the landowner was negligent. Property owners are negligent if they expose invitees or licensees to an unreasonable and foreseeable risk of harm. Owners and occupiers of land have a duty to exercise ordinary care to protect invitees from dangers they either knew or should have known about. They are liable if they fail to adequately warn invitees of the danger or if they fail to make the condition reasonably safe. Landlords and property owners who fail to provide adequate security to protect invitees from foreseeable criminal acts are liable for any injuries that result. The victim is thus entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and other damages related to the injury.
