If you’re the victim of an assault, you may feel the perpetrator is the only guilty party. However, if the attack occurred on such premises that had inadequate security, the property owner may be held liable. This is a type of premises liability case in which an owner or possessor of a property failed to take measures to create a safe environment for patrons or guests.

Our attorneys have years of experience providing personal injury representation in West Palm Beach and throughout the entire state of Florida. Call us at (561) 444-8822 if you feel negligent security is to blame for your injuries.
Business and property owners have a responsibility to provide a certain level of security for visitors and employees. Why? Because many criminals target locations with poor security, knowing they have a better chance of getting away with their crime. These crimes include armed robbery, physical assault, sexual assault, or other violent acts.
Most of the crimes can be prevented if adequate security measures are taken. Unfortunately, public buildings such as shopping malls, office complexes, hotels, parking garages, and even schools are vulnerable to physical security threats, especially at night. This is often a result of negligence on the part of the owner. Some common examples of negligent security include :
If any of these conditions led to your attack and subsequent injuries, the attorneys at Felice & Ehrlich can help protect your rights. We’ll determine if negligent security directly resulted in your injuries and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Negligent security cases are very complex. Property owners have no duty to provide direct protection against crimes committed by a third party. However, they do have a duty to implement and maintain adequate security to protect against foreseeable acts of crime. This means that if a property owner or possessor knowingly failed to provide or maintain security measures, they’re guilty of negligence. If this is the case, you have the right to seek compensation from them for your injuries.
If you have suffered a personal injury due to negligent security, contact us now. At Felice & Ehrlich, Attorneys At Law, our attorneys will take a close look at the security conditions at the crime scene to determine if the property owner was negligent. We’ll also consider your medical records, lost wages, and emotional trauma to calculate an appropriate amount of compensation to fight for. If the property owner’s or business’s insurance company attempts to get you to settle for less than you deserve, we’ll intervene and ensure your rights are protected. Our attorneys will do everything they can to obtain fair compensation for your damages.
At Felice & Ehrlich, we understand the physical and emotional impact a violent attack can have on your life.
