So many accidents that occur on another premise are due to the negligence in security on the part of a third party or local business. It is an unfortunate situation that happens far too often throughout the state of Florida. These accidents could be helped and even avoided if local businesses and venues maintained proper security measures.
What most victims aren’t aware of is that often times these attacks warrant legal issues, and not solely in the case of an attacker who clearly committed a crime, but the individuals or victims harmed by the actions of another can seek justice and compensation to help aid in their recovery. In addition to the crime itself, there also may be a third-party liability known as “negligent security
”, where a property owner is held accountable for failure to keep their properties safe.
Negligent security matters are usually rooted in premise liability
rules which outline the responsibilities property owners have to others, which include keeping a premise safe. While a property owner cannot be responsible for every intentional act of another person, the owner does have to maintain certain security measures and adhere to those responsibilities to reduce the risk of harm to others as much as possible.
