If you have been attacked or victimized while on another person’s property, there’s a chance you are a victim of negligent security. In Florida, property owners are responsible for keeping their properties safe and secure. If they don’t, and someone is hurt on the property, the property owner can be held liable for the injuries.
Negligent Security or Something Else?
There are many ways you can be injured on another person’s property but not all of them are considered negligent security. They could be slip and fall or premises liability cases. In negligent security cases, the lack of adequate protections leads to attacks or injuries being inflicted by a third-party. In slip and fall or premises liability cases, the injury typically results only from unsafe conditions, a third-party perpetrator is not involved.
Examples of negligent security include:
Negligent security may lead to crimes or activities that could have been avoided had the proper precautions been in place. Abductions, assaults, burglary and vandalism, homicides, and personal injuries can all result from negligent security. Attacks can occur anywhere, on private or public property, but often take place in public areas with a high population density such as shopping malls, nightclubs, parking garages, and apartment complexes.
