Fast Facts: Negligent Security
Here are some Fast Facts about Negligent Security Lawsuits that you should know.
claims for your being hit, assaulted and battered, punched, raped, molested, strangled, shot, stabbed, knifed, and many other ways in which you were hurt and injured by: the violence of someone else; because of the negligence of another person or company; or due to the actions of a group or third party not taking proper preventive measures such as warnings, fences, cameras, security guards, etc.
In a negligent security lawsuit, your personal injury lawyer can request a “grid study” of police reports for the location and surrounding area to see how dangerous the area was or is. This can be used in some instances to provide a basis for good expert witness testimony from security experts such as retired FBI, military, chief of police or other highly qualified experts.
Negligent security cases do not rise or fall on the presence of a security guard even if there was one present. What was the level of training of the guard; did the guard respond appropriately; was more than one guard needed; etc.
Should the guard, security company, hotel, resort or business owner have anticipated the event before it happened so that it would have been prevented instead of having a guard there?
Maybe better parking lot lighting, a better room key and lock, video cameras, or a fence would have stopped the vicious rape or mugging from happening in the first place.
Sometimes the criminal perpetrator is never identified in a negligent security lawsuit. That is usually the case, so do not think if the attacker or perpetrator is not known that you do not have a civil lawsuit against the property owner for assault, battery, rape, robbery or other violent crime that caused you serious injury.
You would be surprised at what facts can be learned by proper investigation.
I once had a case where we found out the security guard was told to stay inside a store if someone outside was being hit on the head because it could be a phony make believe robbery and the plan or idea would be to steal from the cash registers!
Incredible but true.
Hotels, Resorts, Health Spas, Motels and Bars should all know that Florida is a place for visitors, vacationers, and tourists; and that people who are from different states or countries will not always be as careful about where they go, or know how to stay safe and secure, because they are expecting secure premises.
Sometimes the people who are hired to protect you are the people that seriously injure you.
Bouncers, managers, employees of nightclubs, bars, lounges and even security guards may use excessive or unnecessary force and their employer may then be liable.
A free consultation with a Miami Injury Lawyer would be a good idea for you to learn about your legal rights.
Whether you were hurt during an armed robbery, or sexually assaulted, the idea behind every lawsuit against a motel, hotel, restaurant, shopping mall or other establishment is that their failure to use reasonable care to protect your personal safety was the main cause and/or reason for the misfortune and injuries or losses resulting from it.
There are even a few cases where a victim was followed and sexually assaulted off premises and there was a jury verdict in favor of the victim, as well as cases of robbery in an adjacent parking lot, not even one that was owned by the bar where the drunken assailant had been drinking.
Each case is different.
I was the chairperson of the Florida Bar Public Interest Section Crime Victim’s Rights Committee for a period of time, and I feel strongly about these negligent security cases.
