“Property owners have a legal obligation to keep their employees and guests safe at all times. In order to do that, adequate security would need to be in places such as security guards and surveillance cameras throughout the property. Depending on the circumstance, property owners can be held liable in court for injuries received to the victims, if the incident was reasonably foreseeable,” shared Mr. Thompson.
