Businesses, building owners and landlords have a duty to provide adequate lighting for their employees,Inadequate Lighting tenants and visitors. Maintenance, including proper lighting, is critical to ensure the safety of anyone who enters a commercial or residential building, a school, a convenience store or in parking lots and parking structures.

Any area can be unsafe when lighting is poor and inadequate. This can include parking lots, sidewalks, hallways, walkways, and both interior and exterior stairwells and steps. These areas often become hot spots for criminal attacks and violence, which can leave victims seriously injured or dead.

Inadequate lighting can cause and contribute to various safety threats:

Inadequate lighting, also referred to as negligent security or premises liability, arises from the negligence of a person or entity that fails to properly maintain the premises. When property owners fail to keep their premises adequately lit, accidents and violent crimes can happen. A property owner that does not promptly address problems with lighting may be liable for injuries sustained on their properties including if they knew of, or should have known of the dangers.

Our premises liability and inadequate lighting attorneys work with investigators, criminologists, and industry safety experts, to identify the ways in which security failed to adequately protect its tenants, property guests and visitors, from foreseeable danger and criminal violence. We will look into the history of the property for evidence of similar crimes or other behavior that may lead to the assault, shooting, rape, robbery, break-in, etc. With former criminal prosecutors on our team, we understand both the criminal and civil justice systems and the impact each can have on crime victims and we have effectively pursued those actions and fought for our client’s rights in court
