Negligent Security Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Property owners, especially business owners, are responsible for the safety of those who are on their property. Motels, clubs, retail establishments, apartment buildings and many other types of businesses are required to provide adequate security to protect customers and others that are on the premises from injury. If a criminal action occurs on a commercial property due to negligent security, the business owner may be liable for the injuries.

Criminal assaults like rape, robbery or shootings are less likely to occur if criminals believe they will be caught or do not have easy access to their victims. Security cameras, adequate lighting, locked entrances and other precautions are not just used to catch criminals, they can deter criminal activities. Security on commercial properties protects customers, employees and the business from becoming a victim of a crime. However, when a business decides not to provide security options, their property can look enticing to criminals and lead to criminal actions that can harm unsuspecting patrons or employees.

Dangers of Negligent Security

When a business does not have adequate security, they may be inviting criminal behavior to occur on their property. Rapes, assaults, shootings and other violent crimes are more likely to happen when criminals believe they have unprotected victims. A hotel or apartment building with poor or no security can be enticing for rapists or robbers. A bar or club without door security, cameras or other precautions may be a target for a mass shooting. If patrons or employees are injured, the business owner may be held financially responsible under Florida premises liability laws.

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.

Michael J.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
