The Courts Add a New Threat to Businesses
Recent legal victories in lawsuits by victims of criminal attacks may be opening a whole new sector in American law. The lawsuits involved action not against the criminal, but against the owner of the business site where the criminal act occurred. This opens up a whole new aspect of business owner liability. The law requires foreseeability to injury on the part of a business owner, and the law is now extending this concept beyond the usual things such as icy steps. Business owners who want to protect themselves from these types of potential liability lawsuits need to start taking increased measures - such as parking lot lighting or security guards - to protect themselves.
