Certain places you expect to be unsupervised and unattended by any sort of security personnel. On the other hand, places like malls, parking garages, hospitals, schools, and restaurants are all assumed to be equipped with cameras, security guards, and other necessary safeguards. When these measures are not in place, areas assumed to be safe suddenly become dangerous.
If you’ve been injured due to the lack of security provided at a certain location, you may be entitled to compensation. The attorneys at Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Littky-Rubin & Whitman in Florida are well aware of the dangers surrounding negligent security, and are equipped to fight for you!
A Florida Personal Injury Lawyer Explains Negligent Security
Any injury a victim sustains that could have been prevented by better maintenance on the part of the property owner can potentially be filed under premises liability. Negligent security is a more specific branch of this category. Criminal assault or robbery on commercial premises most often makes up cases of negligent security. Essentially, any lack of or negligence in security that allows an injury or crime to occur may be considered “negligent security.”

Negligent Security Liability in Florida
Crimes like sexual assault, purse snatching, and other violent assaults tend to occur in areas where there is negligent security.
A property owner may be liable if his commercial property has the following:

- Inadequate lighting
- Damaged fencing or broken locks
Commercial property owners and employees are expected to recognize dangerous conditions on their property and take steps to remedy them before something happens.
