The incidents may occur at rental homes in high-crime neighborhoods that do not provide deadbolts, bars on windows, or other efforts at crime prevention or deterrence.  
  • Lack of security in public places and business establishments – Shopping centers, restaurants, taverns, and virtually any other place of business can be found liable in a negligent security claim. This includes public parks and bike trails.
