All business owners have a duty to take reasonable measures to minimize criminal behavior that may lead to your injury on property they own or control. These measures may include providing working locks, security bars and systems, properly trained and supervised security staff, and manned video surveillance and intercom systems. If a crime occurs on the property due to an inn keeper, landlord, office building, or other place where a shopper or invitee may be, and you are the victim of crime, such a failure to provide adequate security may entitle you to compensation.
