Holding Property Owners Accountable for Criminal Attacks

Negligent security claims are a special type of premises liability case. All Florida property owners have a duty to provide reasonably safe premises for those who are permitted to visit the property, such as guests, customers, service providers, and others.

Where individuals have visited a property and sustained injuries through a criminal attack due to the neglect of the property owner due to security issues, they may be entitled to pursue an injury claim.

These attacks from third parties while on the property can consist of:

  • Thefts
  • Assaults
  • Sexual assaults
  • Shootings
  • And any other injuries

At the Law Offices Of Fred Tromberg, we are committed to providing competent representation to victims of such crimes that could have been prevented with adequate security measures.

Our legal team is comprised of experienced civil trial lawyers who have spent more than 80 combined years pursuing maximum compensation for clients in personal injury claims. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of inadequate security on a property, we urge you to let us help you seek the compensation you rightfully deserve.

Negligent Security Cases in Florida

Inadequate security or negligent security cases involve the failure of business proprietors to implement reasonably adequate security measures for the protection of their customers from crime. As a general rule, business proprietors are not liable for crime occurring on their property.

However, if a pattern of crime has existed on and about the businesses or properties or if the nature of the businesses and properties makes it peculiarly susceptible to criminal activity, the law will impose upon a business owner a duty to implement reasonable security measures designed to prevent or deter future crimes.

Such measures may include:

  • Increased or better lighting
  • Motion detectors
  • Security cameras
  • Security guards
  • Better or additional locks
  • Perimeter protection such as fences or gates
  • An overall improved maintenance of the businesses and properties

A breach of this duty to provide adequate security is called negligence.

This duty applies to all types of businesses and properties, such as:

  • Malls
  • Shopping centers
  • Apartment complexes
  • Residential rental housing owners
  • Hotels and motels
  • Bars
  • Restaurants
  • Sporting arenas
  • Movie theaters
  • Amusement parks
  • Parking lots and structures
  • Universities and colleges
  • And other commercial premises

If you or a loved one have been the victim of gun violence, sexual or other physical assault or any other crime on public or private property, you should take steps to notify the police immediately.

Please contact our office as soon as possible, as well, to start a civil claim against the property or business owner. That person or company had a duty to provide reasonably safe premises for you or the victim and you should turn to a skilled and proven team of lawyers to protect your interests.
