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.

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.

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 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.
