Holding Property Owners Liable When Inadequate Security Leads to Crime Victims
Public places should not be safe harbors for criminal activity. Commercial property owners in New Mexico have a duty to create reasonably safe environments for their visitors. Property owners must provide appropriate security measures – such as adequate lighting and locks – to protect their guests from crime.
If you or a loved one was a victim of an assault, rape, robbery or other violent crime, then you may have a personal injury or wrongful death claim against the property owner, particularly if the business owner knew about the security issue and either did nothing or didn’t do enough to protect you and others. You may be able to obtain financial recovery for your medical bills, lost wages, emotional trauma and other pain and suffering. In these cases, though, the sooner you seek professional legal advice, the better.

Common Places Where Crimes Occur
Crimes can take place on any type of commercial property that is open to the public, including:

Bars and nightclubs are hotbeds for criminal behavior. The rowdy, alcohol-soaked atmosphere can cause fights or mobs to break out, potentially injuring those standing by.
