Plantation Premise Liability Attorney
If you have been the victim of a third party on the property of another, you may have a negligent security claim against the property owner. Leaser Law Firm represents clients who have been injured in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, West Palm and all cities throughout south Florida. One form of premise liability law is Negligent Security, where the victim is injured by the criminal actions of a third party.
Negligent security is a form of premises liability against a business or property owner where they fail to provide security on their property. This can occur a number of ways, but the owner can be found negligent if they don’t have adequate lighting, locks, security cameras or security guards at locations where they should. Certain cases lead to catastrophic injuries or even death. For an injured party to recover in Florida, they must prove that the there was a dangerous condition on the premises, the owner knew or should have known about the condition, the owner or landlord failed to take reasonable actions to reduce or eliminate the condition and this failure was the proximate cause of the injury. The victim may recover from the landlord, homeowner or business owner the damages they sustained.
As a business owner, you have the duty to protect your visitors. This does not just apply to night clubs, banks and pawn shops, but can also apply to apartment buildings, parking lots and malls. This duty is heightened where the business is in Florida and is located in a high crime area. If you are the victim of a crime that occurred in Florida that you think should have been prevented, contact a Plantation injury attorney who understands Negligent Security law in Florida. Even though your injury may have been caused by a criminal, it doesn’t mean you can’t recover from the business if it should have been prevented.
