How do I select the best negligent security attorney in Southwest Florida?
The way you select the best negligent security attorney in Florida is by looking up their credentials, what they’ve done in their career. Our law firm has been around for nearly 60 years. We handle negligent security cases regularly. We have four board-certified civil trial attorneys. What does that all mean? It means that when you hire an attorney, the insurance company knows that attorney. They know if they’re a trial attorney or they know if they’re not, if they’re just an attorney that takes cases and settles them without the willingness to push the case forward to go to trial.
You really need to look into the attorney that you’re hiring, make sure the attorney has a good understanding of negligent security law, and that they can appropriately handle your case to maximize the value of the case. If you have a negligent security case, please feel free to reach out to us. We’d be happy to help you through that.
What should I do if I was injured in a negligent security injury in Southwest Florida?
We have folks come to us where they have a negligent security injury claim in Florida and they ask us what they should do, what some of the steps are that they should take. They’ve taken the right step first, which is to get the attorney involved. An attorney can preserve all the evidence, such as if there’s video, if something happens at a gas station or in the parking lot at a Walmart or any other large establishment like that where they may have parking lot cameras and get statements of witnesses. The attorney can preserve all the appropriate evidence to maximize the value of your case.
The second thing would be to not talk to the insurance company. Don’t give them a statement. You can say things that could potentially hurt your case, so get the attorney involved right away. The attorney can guide you through the steps that you need to take to maximize the value of your case. Our law firm has been handling these sort of cases for nearly 60 years. If you have a negligent security case, please feel free to reach out to our law firm so we can help.
What are some common mistakes people make that can ruin their negligent security claim?
A common mistake that someone may make if they have a negligent security case in Florida is not really realizing they have a negligent security case. A negligent security case is where a property owner, whether it be a gas station or some sort of big-box retailer, know that there are some issues on their property, say with crime. They have violent crimes where they’ve had people mugged or they’ve had shootings, and then they don’t appropriately protect the people that are coming on their property. If they don’t appropriately protect someone and that person is injured, then there’s a case. You see these sort of things happen all the time and the person just thinks, “Well, the person that assaulted me is really the at-fault party,” but, no, the at-fault party can be the actual place of business that you’re going to, where you have an expectation that you’re going to be safe. That’s what a negligent security case is.
Another common mistake is not hiring an attorney right away. In a negligent security case, oftentimes there will be video that will show the incident, if you’re at some sort of business premises where they have video cameras, and the person doesn’t hire an attorney, so we can’t get the appropriate evidence, can’t get the witnesses and statements from them, so we can’t build your case appropriately. You really need to hire an attorney right away that knows what they’re doing.
