Your Safety is Their Responsibility
Negligent security or failed maintenance of a property or a business can result in assaults, burglaries and serious injuries.
Many times, owners of a property are aware of dangers existing on their property such as regular criminal conduct, but choose to ignore them. Commercial property owners have a responsibility to ensure the safety of the public while on their property by taking proper steps to prevent criminal conduct.
Why do I need a personal injury attorney for my negligent security case?
A personal injury attorney can determine when criminal conduct was foreseeable. Police departments, the Sheriff’s office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement all keep records of reported crimes. These records, known as a crime grid, can be obtained for a specific address to determine if similar crimes had occurred in the past. If they have, then the business owner has a duty to protect you from subsequent similar acts. The failure to do so can lead to the business owner being responsible to pay for losses and harm one sustains.
Let our personal injury attorneys help advise you on the process ahead. We will strive to help recover full compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and any additional financial or personal losses you and your family have endured.
