St. Petersburg Negligent Security Attorney
Tampa Inadequate Security Lawyer
Businesses, such as malls, stores, hotels, and apartment complexes have a duty to take reasonable measures to prevent foreseeable acts of violence against people on their premises. If you have been injured due to a criminal act on a business property, you may be able to hold that business accountable for failing to provide a safe environment for its consumers.
At Reeder & Nussbaum, P.A., in St. Petersburg, Florida, our attorneys recognize the responsibility that businesses and other organizations have to protect consumers inside of their stores, facilities and buildings, as well as outside in parking lots and other parts of the properties. If you have been injured, contact us and tell us about your story at a free initial consultation and case evaluation.
Reasonable Standards of Care for Property Owners
When an accident occurs that could have been prevented by reasonable actions on behalf of the property owner or manager, you may have a personal injury claim based on negligent security against that property owner. What qualifies as reasonable standards of care largely depends on the individual situation, but some measures may include:
- Working and monitored surveillance cameras
- Adequate lighting
- Installing and fixing fences and/or walls
- Security guards
- Removal of suspicious individuals
- Additional measures as necessary
In cases where acts of violence have occurred in the past, the property owner is obligated to take extra steps to protect people on the premises. At Reeder & Nussbaum, we have the experience and legal knowledge necessary to properly evaluate injuries caused by negligent security. We will fully investigate the history of a property to see if acts of violence have taken place before and hire the necessary security experts to determine whether or not the security measures in place were adequate for that business.
