Negligent Security Claims in Florida
Help from a Panama City Personal Injury Lawyer
When a person owns property, they have a legal obligation to keep that property safe for visitors, guests, clients, and customers. For commercial business owners, landlords, or property managers, this is especially true. While people may typically think it is their duty to keep walkways clear, repair damaged handrails or staircases, or put out signs for wet aisles, this isn’t everything covered in premise liability cases. Having adequate security is also a key aspect of a property owner's duties.
If you have suffered serious injuries due to lack of security, now is the time to call on the Florida injury lawyer at The Pittman Firm, P.A.
What Is Considered Security Negligence?
There are some basic security measures that all property owners can take to ensure their clients, residents, or customers are safe. If they fail to do so, it could lead to an increase in criminal activity, putting the safety of patrons at risk.
- Some of the main features property owners can provide for security include:
- Security guards
- Security cameras
- Proper lighting outside / inside
- Secure entrances and walkways
- Working door locks and security gates
- Alarm systems
If a security guard is inadequately trained to do their job or a surveillance camera isn’t working properly, it could put visitors and customers in danger. When injuries due to mugging, robbing, assault, or other criminal activities occur due to negligent security, a claim may be brought forward against the property owner.
