Negligent Security During Summer Months

On Behalf of | Jun 21, 2019 | Firm News |

During summer, many eager individuals host gatherings like pool parties and barbeques at their apartment complexes. This typically leads to more people on the property.

Unfortunately, not all are welcome visitors. Apartment complexes have a legal obligation to make their premises adequately safe to ensure the safety of residents and visitors. When proper measures are not taken, the property owner may have a negligent security lawsuit coming their way.

It may be more difficult to decipher who is a welcome or unwelcome visitor when there are more people on a property, such as during the summer months. This just means that property owners are obligated to provide a level of security that is adequately safe, taking that into consideration. Every situation will differ, but this might mean that property owners may have to get more security cameras, security guards, or more gates that only residents can enter through.

Everyone wants to enjoy their summer breaks, but it’s important to remember that safety is still the number one priority. If you believe someone is on the property you live at that should not be, you should contact the property owner or police if the situation seems dangerous.
