Orlando Negligent Security Lawyer

Property owners throughout the United States, including Florida, have a duty to keep their properties reasonably safe. If a property owner fails to do so, and harm befalls another, the property owner may be held liable for it as a direct result. In fact, property owners’ duties extend to ensuring that property guests are protected from criminal attacks or acts – if the property owner fails to maintain proper security to prevent a criminal act from occurring, they may be accused of negligent security. Contact our experienced Orlando negligent security lawyers for more information.

Negligent Security Cases

A negligent security case asserts that a property owner had a duty to provide a certain level of security on the property, and that the lack of security was the direct cause of the plaintiff’s harm. The amount of security that is considered “reasonable” will vary from property to property. Some types of security that may be sensible to expect include:

  • Adequate lighting;
  • Security cameras;
  • Locked doors and gates;
  • A security guard on duty; and
  • Appropriate fencing.

A negligent security claim can involve virtually any type of businesses, including but not limited to shopping centers, hotels, apartment and condominiums complexes, bars and restaurants, commercial businesses, parking lots, and more.

When Crime Happens Because of a Lack of Security

When appropriate security is not present, the property may be more inviting to criminals, resulting in theft, assault, sexual assault, shootings, and more. The victim of such crime cannot only press criminal charges against the person who committed the crime, but also civil charges against the property owner if they can prove that their injuries would not have occurred had the owner taken proper precautions to ensure reasonable security.

Damages in a Civil Claim

In a civil negligent security claim, a plaintiff may be able to recover compensation for the harm that they have suffered, including expenses for medical bills, physical pain, emotional suffering, and even lost wages. However, proving a negligent security claim is not easy, and takes the skill and experience of a skilled lawyer. At the Baez Law Firm, we have the team to put together a strong case, the resources to conduct a thorough investigation and build a strong argument, and the connections to experts to prove that injuries were caused by negligence.
