Being in a public place such as a shopping center, theater, commercial office building or retail store is a common occurrence across North Carolina. When the public visits these public venues, they come to expect being able to shop or enjoy the premises without risk of harm. It is the responsibility of the premises owner to ensure that the security for any given location is appropriate based on the risk potential in the surrounding environment. A dark parking lot in a shopping center may always have the potential of being dangerous if a criminal is in the neighborhood. Theaters or retail stores in high crime areas would be expected to have security cameras or even security guards on the premises. If proper precautions are not taken and someone becomes the victim of a crime, he or she may have cause for legal action against the premises owner.
If you or someone you know has been a victim of a crime or been threatened in some manner in such a situation, contact a North Carolina personal injury lawyer at our firm to discuss the circumstances surrounding your incident. We can review the matter to determine if you have grounds for a premises liability claim.
