A negligent security attorney in Jacksonville can review your claim as a victim of rape, assault, or wrongful death due to negligent or inadequate security for a business or personal property. In Florida, if you have been injured or had a loved one killed during an assault while on someone else’s property, you may have a legitimate negligent security case. If a property owner or business manager knows about bad lighting, broken locks, a damaged fence or untrained security personnel, he or she may be liable for any damages that you incurred due to their unreasonable actions. Our negligent security attorney can review the safety provisions outlined in your lease or facility rules to determine whether negligence (intended or not) is responsible for your damages.

If you have been injured on the property of a business, apartment complex, restaurant, hotel, parking lot or retail store, then you may have a negligent security claim if you were injured during a criminal act by a third party. Premises security liability refers to the common liability that a property owner or business operator has to protect you from the foreseeable criminal actions of someone else. Business owners and managers are required by law to account for the risk of a criminal activity when managing their property or assuming responsibility for the daily activities of their business. Inadequate or negligent security claims can be filed for victims of criminal acts such as rape, burglary, robbery or assault.

For the best personal injury attorney in Orange Park, contact Chris Johns Law Group at (904) 570-3555. Based on specific regulations that govern the level of security required, property owners and building managers have an obligation to maintain a facility’s security including the control of master keys, building access codes, camera security systems, interior and exterior lighting. Other key areas of responsibility include the general maintenance of the grounds to prevent any overgrowth of landscaping that might increase the risk of a crime. Finally, an experienced personal injury attorney can review the facility’s overall level of security and ensure proper screening was done prior to hiring security personnel.
