It is expected under law that an owner or manager of a property, whether a business, residence or government building, will maintain the premises in such a manner that does not put visitors in danger. This includes keeping the floors and walking areas free of obstacles and liquids to prevent slip and falls and preventing dangerous situations that put guests at danger of violent crimes, such as abduction and rape.
When there is security, such as in hotels, motels, apartments or other facilities, it is expected that the systems are properly maintained, including locks, gates, lights and other vital systems that protect guests.
