Owners who provide negligent security when it's common knowledge that crimes happen on or near the premises may be civilly liable for an assault. It could be that a hotel fails to install locks on windows, for example, that allowed an intruder to enter a hotel room.

Of course, if an owner had provided all necessary security features and the assault occurred anyway, the property owner may not be negligent.

Examples include:

  • ensuring the lights are working;
  • installing security cameras;
  • hiring  a security guard; and
  • making sure all locks work.
