Ocala Negligent Security Attorneys
Property owners are supposed to ensure that their property is safe for people who visit, whether for business or social reasons. If this responsibility is neglected and you are injured on their property as a result, you could be eligible to sue the property owner for negligent security and get compensated for your injury.
If you have been injured due to negligence on someone else’s property, the experienced attorneys of the Davila Law Group can help you hold the property owner responsible and help you get the compensation you deserve. We understand your situation and want to help you obtain what is rightfully yours.
Negligent Security Lawsuits
Under Florida law, property owners have a legal responsibility to maintain their property in such a way that it is safe and secure. If you are assaulted and injured while on their property due to unsafe conditions, such as broken locks, inadequate security measures, or inadequate lighting, then you can hold the owner liable for negligent security.
The standards for distinguishing adequate security from negligent security vary from state to state and case to case. In Florida, for example, if a convenience store has a sign posted that says the cash register contains less than $50 and has a working security system, its security precautions are considered adequate. The property owner could not be held liable for injuries sustained from a third-party criminal attack in the store. However, property owners can be held liable in many other situations.
The experienced negligent security attorneys of the Davila Law Group understand the nuances of the laws involving liability and know what it takes to develop a successful negligent security case. We gather the evidence needed to show that the property owner should have known about the possible danger on his property and did not take the action(s) necessary to make the property safer or provide sufficient warnings so visitors could avoid harm. Then we litigate cases aggressively to show that our client was injured and suffered damages because of a situation that could have been prevented had the property owner implemented adequate security measures.
Compensation for Victims of Negligent Security
Injuries from crimes committed on property with negligent security can be very serious. You could experience long-term mental and physical effects, including post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, physical disabilities, and disfigurement.
A negligent security lawsuit can help. It can’t undo the injury or punish the criminal who caused the injury. However, it can help you get compensated fairly for your damages and losses, such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering.
