Boca Raton Premises Liability Attorneys Answer Frequently Asked Questions Negligent Security
Protecting the interests of clients injured due to negligent security throughout South Florida
Premises liability is an area of law which covers the duty of property owners to maintain their property in safe condition for those who visit whether as guests, customers or clients. If you are visiting someone else’s property, for example, walking into a convenience store to buy milk on the way home and you get shot when the store is robbed, that might be a case of negligent security. Another example might occur when you are seated at the bar in a club when you are assaulted by another patron, or if your child was injured at an amusement park. Negligent security claims hold the property owner or manager responsible for the harm that befalls visitors because of unsafe conditions on their property.

You never have to worry about being able to afford a good premises liability lawyer because we take cases on contingency. So, you do not pay any legal fees unless we win compensation for you.
What is premises liability?
If you have suffered an injury while you were on someone else’s property, you may be able to take legal action against the responsible party for your injuries and other losses. Property owners owe the invited visitors to their property a duty of care to keep them safe from foreseeable hazards, which includes providing adequate security.
Who has an obligation to provide adequate security?
Property owners and managers, landlords of apartment buildings and homes, homeowners, security officers have an obligation to protect the safety of customers and clients and others who are invited to enter the property. Depending on the circumstances, adequate security might include hiring security guards, installing security lighting, installing locks, security cameras, fences and burglar alarms.
What must I prove to win a negligent security case?
In a premises liability claim, the plaintiff (the injured person) must prove that the defendant (property owner or responsible party) had a duty to provide adequate security, failed to do so, and this failure caused the plaintiff’s injuries. (it is never as simple as that, but this is just to give you an overview).
