Florida Inadequate Security Attorney

Property owners, building managers and retailers who fail to provide adequate security measures for patrons can be held liable for injuries that result from assaults and robberies. In most cases, liability for inadequate security is a function of foreseeability: should a building manager or retailer have foreseen the possibility of criminal attacks on his or her property? If crime in the area is a concern or if customers carry merchandise to their cars, stores and building managers have a duty of care to minimize risks and threats to their patrons.

At Ferrer & Gonzalez, PL, we work with security consultants, safety experts, and law enforcement professionals to identify security lapses that play a role in the attacks on our clients. We demand financial damages proportional to our clients’ medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Don’t assume being a victim of crime is simply a matter of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Hold negligent property owners and retailers liable for negligent security – contact a personal injury lawyer at Ferrer & Gonzalez, PL, today to schedule a free consultation.

Inadequate Personal Security and Criminal Assault

Ferrer & Gonzalez, PL, represents victims of criminal attacks involving the following kinds of security lapses:

  • Poor lighting in parking garages
  • Absence of security cameras
  • Absence of parking lot security
  • Inadequate background checks on employees
  • Absence of front desk personnel
  • Broken locks on front doors
  • Broken ID card readers
  • Absence of security fencing
  • Inadequate security at nightclubs

Understanding Liability for Criminal Assaults

Retailers like Kohl’s, Target, Wal-Mart or Best Buy have security cameras and security personnel posted inside their stores. Due to concerns about theft and the safety of customers, retailers take steps to prevent crime precisely because they see it as a risk. However, many retailers do not have security measures in place in parking lots, even though customers carry merchandise and expensive items to their cars.

It’s important to ask why, if retailers acknowledge a risk inside their store, they don’t acknowledge a similar one outside on their parking lot? As your legal representatives, our attorneys establish the accountability of the retailers, pointing out lapses on their part in addressing security issues that pose a threat to customers. Consulting with safety and security experts, we expose failures on the part of retailers and property owners that result in inadequate security and, ultimately, injury to our clients.
