Crime Victims/Negligent Security
Being a victim of crime can be devastating, particularly if the criminal uses force or violence against the victim. As a crime victim you may experience physical damage to your body or emotional wounds caused by the violence against you. Reactions to violence vary from person to person and can last for hours, days, weeks, months or years.
What if the crime could have been prevented had a property owner taken the necessary steps, such as replacing locks on apartment doors or putting up security cameras in a parking lot where similar assaults have happened before?
