(813) 254-7119 Inadequate Building or Apartment Security

Inadequate Building / Apartment Security Claims Lawyer

There are many people in the world that can cause harm. These criminals are the reason the security industry exists, helping to deter criminal activity and catch criminals who perpetrate crimes. Commercial property owners have a duty to keep those on their property safe from harm, which includes violent criminals. When a commercial building or apartment complex has inadequate security, it can put those on the premises at risk for injury or harm. If injuries occur, the owners of commercial properties with poor security may be liable for damages due to negligence.

What Is Inadequate Security?

Can an apartment building or commercial property owner prevent all crimes with security? Of course not, but they do have an obligation to reduce the risk of danger to tenants and others on their property. For the purpose of premises liability claims, adequate security is a relative term. It depends on the type of building/business, where the building is located and the history of crime in that neighborhood. A high-crime area or building with a history of criminal activity should be expected to have higher security measures in place than a building in a low crime area.

How Does Security Prevent Injuries?

If a commercial building or apartment complex has adequate security, it is less likely to attract criminals. Security cameras, good lighting, locked entrances, security guards and other methods are meant to keep criminals away. Criminals would prefer an easier target with lower security to reduce their chance of getting caught. If security is lacking, robberies, sexual assaults, rapes, shootings and other violent attacks are more likely to occur. When a violent crime occurs and inadequate security was a factor, the building owner may be liable for injuries and damages caused by the crime.

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
