Types of Negligent Security Cases
Negligent security cases arise when a victim is injured on another person’s property by a third party. The perpetrator may take advantage of insufficient lighting, rusted fences, or other lax security measures to injure a victim.
Florida law allows a property owner to be held legally liable for a crime committed on their property by a third party if that crime is considered “foreseeable.” In these cases, we must prove:
- The property owner had a duty to provide a reasonably safe environment. For example, a late-night diner in a high crime area should have a well-lit parking lot or a security guard.
- The victim was injured because of the lapse in security. For example, you were hurt during a robbery at the late-night diner because they did provide a reasonably safe environment.
- You suffered damages due to the failure to provide adequate security. For example, you were treated for cuts to the face or a broken arm due to the robbery.
Here are a few examples of negligent security cases we might pursue:
- A casino fails to add additional security after a robbery and a subsequent robbery occurs. You are injured in the robbery.
- A parking lot in a high crime area has broken lights that the owner has not fixed, despite being notified about the problem. You are attacked in the parking lot and injured.
- A convenience store owner fails to follow Florida laws regarding convenience store security. The store is robbed, and you are injured as a result.
These are just a few examples of negligent security cases. A negligent security lawyer can evaluate your situation to determine if you have a case and can help if you have to go to court to file a personal injury claim.
