Have you or a loved one been attacked on the property of another? Sometimes the property owner is aware of criminal elements in the neighborhood surrounding the property or of past criminal acts that have taken place on the property before you were attacked. Despite this knowledge, some unscrupulous property owners make no effort to protect their guests or the general public.
Property owners can often prevent these crimes by implementing adequate security measures. In Florida, property owners have a duty to keep their guests and the general public safe from harm, including criminal attacks. If a property owner fails to take adequate safety measures to warn visitors of dangerous conditions, the property owner could be held liable for the negligent security that led to you or a loved one’s injury.
Negligent security claims commonly involve any one of the following scenarios:
- Bar fights
- Parking lot assaults
- Robberies at ATMs and parking lots
- Rape in parking lots or apartment building complexes
- Poor or inadequate hotel security
- Attacks in elevators or stairwells
- Poor or inadequate parking lot surveillance
- Negligent theme park or shopping mall security
