Boca Raton Negligent Security Lawyers
Businesses Should Protect Customers by Securing Their Premises. When They Fail, Call Us.
Poorly lit parking lots, hotels without locks on their outer doors, and other areas without basic precautions may draw criminals looking for easy targets. Commercial landowners must keep visitors safe by taking steps to reduce the risk of violence and crime on their property. Tenants and consumers alike should be able to walk outside without fearing for their safety because a property owner failed to implement appropriate security. This includes gated-communities as well.
Unfortunately, criminal activity is a persistent problem throughout Florida—some places more than others. Especially for businesses or rental properties in high-risk areas, failure to counter this hazard is unacceptable. If you or a loved one was targeted by a criminal while on someone else’s property, ask Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen if you are eligible to file a negligent security claim. Out attorneys can clarify your legal options and offer guidance on your next steps.
Our Boca Raton premises liability lawyers are here to help. Start your negligent security claim today by calling (866) 629-1061 and scheduling a free consultation.
What Does Negligent Security Look Like?
Because negligent security constitutes a lack of effort on the property owner’s part, it is about what has not been done. For example:
- Defective or missing surveillance cameras in and around a store (including the parking lot)
- Lack of streetlights in a parking garage or the parking lot of a business that is open after dark
- Failure to create a policy concerning the duplication and return of keys for a rental property
- Lack of fencing around an apartment complex in a high-crime neighborhood
- Unwillingness of security guards to step in to intervene in dangerous situations
- Lack of bouncers at a bar or club
- Low or insufficient levels of security/staff at a business or event
- Lack of metal detectors or other security checks at the entrance to a sporting event or concert
- Failure to report violent crimes that have occurred on a property
- Security planning that does not account for an area’s reputation for violence or criminal activity
- Homeowner Associations not implementing properly security measure to protect residents
Most of us know when we are in dangerous locales and act with more caution. The businesses we visit must do the same. If you were hurt because of a company that failed in one or more of the ways listed above or had another breakdown in its security practices that put you in danger, please reach out to let us know what happened and how we can help you.
Complex and Catastrophic Injuries Caused by Negligent Security
Unfortunately, criminal activity often involves firearms, meaning victims can sustain life-threatening wounds. Assault, especially gun violence, is a leading cause of both traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury. These attacks are also highly distressing and can cause PTSD and other mental and emotional struggles that interfere with your ability to participate in and enjoy your life.
Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen helps those who suffered severe and life-changing injury find justice. If you or a loved one is in this position, we can help you recover compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Future medical needs
- Lost wages
- Decreased earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
Though you could file a suit against the criminal who attacked you, they are unlikely to have any assets for you to recover. Therefore, it’s important you take the time to build a strong negligent security claim. Our attorneys have fought many of these lawsuits over the years. We know what it takes to prevail in a complex case.
Filing a Negligent Security Claim
Because there is no empirical threshold a company must (fail to) meet for you to file a negligent security claim, it’s important to have a skilled legal team on your side. Our job is to show the level of security provided was insufficient for the circumstances. Crime rates and other local business’ security measures are two types of evidence for which our team can search.
After an attack or other act of violence, a business owner might update their security practices and policies to dodge liability. This is unfair to you, and it stands in the way of your ability to recover the compensation you need. Our attorneys can launch a thorough investigation to determine what security measures were in place at the time of your attack. We put in the work to make every case we take as strong as possible.
