Fort Lauderdale Improper or Inadequate Security Attorney
Owners and managers of public properties such as apartment buildings, shopping malls, hotels and parking garages are expected to provide adequate security measures to protect the safety of people who come onto those properties. These security measures may range from sturdy locks and adequate lighting to security guards and video cameras.
The adequate or proper level of security depends on the nature of the property as well as its location. For example, if property owners who are aware of incidents of crime in their neighborhoods, they may be expected to take stronger measures than owners who may not be in a known high crime area. If you have been assaulted on a public property and believe that improper security played a part in causing your injury, you should contact an experienced Fort Lauderdale premises liability attorney at the Florida Injury Law Group.
Some owners or managers, unfortunately, focus more on concerns about cost than on ways to maximize their patrons' safety, or simply neglect to take appropriate safety measures. In such cases, the victims of crime who suffer injuries on someone else's property may sue the property owner or manager. The victims will have to demonstrate that inadequate security measures contributed to the creation of an environment that made the crimes easier to commit. As in other personal injury cases, victims may receive compensation for their pain and suffering, as well as for medical bills, lost wages and other related expenses.
At the Florida Injury Law Group, we offer a free and confidential consultation to individuals who have been harmed by inadequate security measures. While no amount of money can erase the trauma you have suffered, our experienced premises liability attorney will help you pursue the maximum financial compensation available for the injuries you have suffered. By bringing your claim, you will also motivate the owner or manager of the premises to implement better security measures, and keep others from being victimized as you were.
