Protecting the Rights of the Injured in Florida

Under premises liability law, property owners owe their visitors, customers, and patrons the right to a relatively safe environment. This means that the property is maintained in a safe manner, which can extend to everything from adequate lighting to reasonable security. In general, property owners are not responsible for criminal attacks upon visitors except under certain circumstances. When those circumstances give rise to victimization, the individuals who have sustained injuries may have legal recourse for damages through premises liability claims.

If you have been the victim of a criminal attack or assault due to the negligent security of a property owner, you should discuss your case with one of our Tampa negligent security lawyers at Harmon Parker, P.A. We can review the situation to determine if your injuries fall under Florida premises liability law. With decades of experience in handling all types of personal injury claims, we can determine your legal options and aggressively represent you in any appropriate claim for damages.

Negligent Security Cases in Florida

Unfortunately, criminal attacks can arise in all kinds of situations involving everything from muggings to bar fights, assaults, rapes, and even murder. They can take place in shopping malls, restaurants, hotels, sports arenas, concert venues, and other public places. While many of these are not the fault of the property owner, they may be held liable if they could have or should have anticipated such events and failed to take adequate security measures.

For example, if a property is located in an area where other break-ins, assaults, or attacks have occurred, its owners may reasonably have a duty to provide adequate security to protect any visitors. This can include parking garages as well as walkways on the property leading to its entrances and exits.

Security measures that may be needed can include:

  • Adequate lighting
  • Secure gates, fences, and doors
  • Security guards
  • Motion detectors
  • Security cameras
  • Alarm systems

When these types of measures are neglected or never provided in the first place, it may form the basis of a valid claim for anyone injured in a criminal attack.
