Miami Negligent Security Attorneys
Fighting to Hold Property Owners Accountable
Many business establishments hire security officers to help keep visitors and customers safe. Establishments like banks, hotels, or apartment complexes implement other types of security measures because they have a duty to keep everyone on the property safe.
Unfortunately, some property owners do not do this.
If a property is not adequately secured, visitors can be seriously injured. If you or a loved one has suffered from an injury due to the lack of security at an establishment, get in contact with the Miami negligent security attorneys at Amanda Demanda Law Group as soon as possible. You could be entitled to compensation for your injuries, and our team is ready to work tirelessly to help you secure the full, fair amount you are owed.
What Are the Different Types of Negligent Security Cases?
There are many different types of negligent security cases. A case qualifies as a negligent security case if an establishment could have helped avoid the injury, assault, or attack by having a trained security guard on duty or implementing other security measures.
For example, you may be considered a victim of a negligent security incident if you were attacked, shot, sexually assaulted, or robbed on someone else’s property and there were no security guards on duty or other security measures in place, such as lights or cameras. To prove that the property owner is liable, you will need to show that they knew or had reason to believe that such an incident could occur.
If you were injured in any of these scenarios, it’s time to contact a lawyer about your case:
- If you’ve been robbed at an ATM
- If you’ve been assaulted in a hotel room
- If you’ve been attacked in the lobby of an apartment complex
- If you’ve been assaulted while shopping or putting your groceries in the car
- If you’ve been sexually assaulted on a college campus
Of course, many other situations could qualify as negligent security cases. It’s best to explain the facts to an experienced attorney, like those at Amanda Demanda Law Group, to determine if you have the right to file a negligent security case.
Are Property Owners Required to Provide Security?
As an adult, you do have a responsibility to pay attention to your surroundings and react to them as reasonably necessary. However, property owners, tenants, and other parties are also responsible for maintaining safe conditions on their properties to ensure their visitors are safe. If they fail to fulfill this legal obligation to maintain safe conditions, they could be held liable if someone is injured as a result of their failure.
For instance, if a customer is to visit a bank that is in a “rougher” area of town, it’s legally reasonable to assume that the business owner should hire security or take security precautions to keep the visitors of their establishment safe. If the business owner does not, they could be liable for any injuries, attacks, or robberies that take place on their property.
What Types of Compensation Can You Recover in a Negligent Security Case?
Think about the consequences that you or your loved one may have suffered at the hands of a negligent business owner. Injuries can lead to extensive medical bills, the loss of income for an extended period, permanent injuries, or even the loss of a loved one. Overall, the cost of securing a property should have been considered before something horrible happens to a visitor of an establishment, not after.
Because of this, Florida law allows the victims of negligent security cases to pursue compensation for all of the damages they have suffered. This may include compensation for:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost income and wages
- The inability to work in the future due to injuries
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
