Negligent Security Attorney
Many residents and visitors of Miami are injured in an assault or attack as a result of negligent security each and every year. Several of these attacks take place in parking lots of retail establishments, office buildings, nightclubs, apartment complexes, hotels and on college campuses. A negligent security attorney from the law offices of Gamba Herrera Trial Lawyers has the experience and expertise to properly assist victims and their families in the relentless pursuit of justice in cases of this nature.
Property owners are required by law to provide for the safety and security of any customers, visitors, or guests attending the location. If an owner fails to meet these stipulations due to inadequate lighting, broken locks, or inept security guards and an incident occurs, then the owner may be liable, and charged with negligent security under premises liability law.
When someone has been the victim of a criminal assault in Florida, a negligent security lawyer will investigate the situation and determine whether the owner of the property provided adequate security, as well as if they have been negligent. A common law principle is that there is no duty to protect against harm caused by a criminal act of a third party; however, the exception to the rule is that it is one’s duty to take reasonable measures where a criminal act can be foreseen.
If you are injured at a place of business, parking garage, or on a college campus and feel that it was due to security negligence by the proprietor, then those owners should be held accountable and responsible for their actions, or rather lack thereof.
