What is Negligent Security?

Negligent security cases happen when someone is the victim of a crime or violent act. The victim then plans to sue the owner of the property where the crime occurred. Negligent security is a type of premise liability to redress for injuries sustained as the result of another person’s criminal or violent action. Hopefully the individual who committed the violent act will be imprisoned and justice will be served. But there is more than just physical trauma that occurs after being injured during a crime. You can recover for lost wages, medical costs, and emotional distress.

Some examples of crimes that are a result of negligent security can include:

  • A dark parking garage where you get mugged going to your car at night.
  • A double booked hotel room where someone steals your belongings.
  • A sporting event where you are assaulted while leaving the game.
  • A poorly lit alley where you are held at gunpoint walking home.

Remember that no property is ever guaranteed to be safe, but adequate lighting, visible security cameras, locks, fences and alarm systems can drastically reduce violent crimes.

Who is Responsible?

In a negligent security case, there are two parties that can be held responsible – the property owner and the criminal who committed the violent act. The property owner will face a civil suit. The criminal will go to trial through the criminal justice system. So, there are typically multiple cases happening with negligent security. This is why having an attorney on your side is so important in these types of cases.

In Florida, property owners are required to provide a safe location for guests to be on their property. That includes the duty to protect from reasonably foreseeable criminal acts in the future based on knowledge of past attacks.

One of the ways a property owner can ensure their property is safe and reduce the chances of crime happening is to provide adequate security, inspect their property regularly, and take certain precautions to protect the public from crime.

The person who committed the criminal act is also responsible in negligent security cases. This individual will be tried in court like any other criminal and will have his or her own separate trial.

What Does the Victim Need to Prove?

In a negligent security case, the victim must prove two things:

  1. He or she sustained an injury from an unrelated third party on the specific property
  2. The property owner could have prevented this injury from happening and failed to do so

How to Prevent Violent Crimes?

Criminal acts and violent crimes can be prevented when reasonable security measures are taken. Reasonable security measures can include hiring security guards and installing cameras. Negligent security might involve failing to employ enough security guards, not fixing broken locks on security gates, not repairing or improving poor lighting, or having knowledge of past attacks and doing nothing to prevent future attacks from happening.

Absolutely hands down an amazing TEAM! From the person who answers the phone to the Legal Secretaries and the Lawyers. We had such a difficult case that even the Jusge mentioned he doesn’t do Writ of Posession that often. I was impressed with the extensive knowledge and professionalism that Mr. Wagner and Mrs. Melich have as well as their staff. Very efficient and responsiveness was nothing more than excellent. Most importantly, they won the case and we couldn’t be more humbled to have this resolved as this was my Grandparents home.

My finance’ and I hired Daniel to handle the closing of our first home purchase, and we were more than ecstatic with our choice to retain his services. First, the closing was timely and without any issue. Secondly, we received a credit towards our title insurance premium, which as first time home buyers, saved us much needed cash that we put towards our new furniture. Lastly, his support staff was prompt, helpful and professional. Our calls were always taken and our concerns addressed. We will be using Wagner & Associates for our future legal needs!
