I’m so sorry to hear of the attack. Businesses in Houston have a duty to make sure their property is safe. Being safe includes more than making sure spills are cleaned up and potholes are fixed. By law, commercial property owners must take steps against any potential acts of violence on the property. If you have been the victim of an assault in Houston, an experienced attorney can help you make a premises liability claim.
The parking lots, parking garages, and alleys that surround a commercial business are often dark and can be empty. This can give criminals the chance to act without getting caught. In many cases, simply keeping an area well-lit can go a long way towards preventing criminal acts that can lead to serious injuries. If the business is in an area in which lighting may not be enough to ward off an attack, the business may need surveillance cameras which are monitored, a security guard, or other protections to keep customers safe.If you have been injured in an attack on commercial property in Houston, you may have a legal right to compensation from the business.
