Premises security issues 2

leave a comment »

This issue is heating up. We see seminars for the plaintiffs bar, and seminars by the defense bar for their clients.
I just looked at a survey that says hotels generate 22% of premises security cases, hospitals 5%, and residences 36%. The rest spread across offices, bars, colleges, and so on.

The cost of a settlement depends on how much injury is alleged. The painful equation is: wrongful death > rape > assault > robbery. But small cases can still hit six figures.

So now what?  What are the risk management steps to take before the loss?
