The concept of premises liability for criminal acts of third parties has been the subject of great confusion for property owners and business operators around the country. For years they have been barraged with information of how businesses have been sued for millions of dollars because they failed to provide adequate security for their invitees.
Because of this, large companies that are open to the public now incorporate a security plan into their operations manual. However, many companies are frustrated by our legal system and the courts that have an ever-changing interpretation of the definition of crime foreseeability and legal duty.
How is a business to know what security measures will be deemed adequate should a violent crime occur? How is a business to know how to determine if assaultive crime is reasonably foreseeable?
These questions and more are discussed in a new book entitled:
