Inadequate and Negligent Security

Negligent or Inadequate Security claims arise when an individual is victimized or attacked by a third party on another’s property. In many cases, these incidents are preventable. Claims based on Negligent or inadequate security can occur as a result of attacks, assaults, rapes, robberies, and homicides, at:

  • Shopping Centers
  • Hotels and Motels
  • Bars and Restaurants
  • Parking Lots
  • ATMs
  • Apartment Complexes
  • The Workplace
  • Colleges, Universities, and other Schools
  • Train Stations

Every day in America, many innocent people fall victim to violent crime, even in public places and during broad day light. However, much of these crimes are preventable by the land owner or property manager through the proper use of deterrence, surveillance cameras, safety and maintenance policies and procedures, and the use of security guards. Many businesses do not provide any security yet should due to the occurrence of prior crime not just at the place of the attack, but in the surrounding neighborhood as well. Litigating Negligent or Inadequate Security cases is especially important in the fight for justice and the public’s safety. Insurance companies and retail establishments have, over time, attempted to eliminate Negligent or Inadequate Security cases here in Florida by pushing for legislative reform that is unfair to the rights of crime victims and the public in general. They claim that negligent security lawsuits hurt business at a time when many corporations and retailers are making record profits. Many law firms decline to take on these cases because of their difficulty and expense.
