Owners and managers of apartments, shopping malls, ATMs, college campuses, and all other premises must take safety measures to prevent crimes from occurring on their properties. They have a duty to take steps to avoid known risks and threats. When a sexual assault, rape, assault and battery, robbery or any other crime occurs on someone else's property because of the owner's negligence, the victim could be entitled to compensation. Negligence leading to these crimes could take the form of: failure to fix a broken door, lock or window, failure to provide sufficient security, failure to keep public or common areas properly lit, and failure to fix conditions that caused attacks previously. Attacks because of conditions like these commonly occur in all kinds of areas. Bars, nightclubs, store parking lots, hotels, motels, and apartment complexes are just some typical examples.
