Florence Negligent Security Lawyer

When you visit a nightclub, sporting event, shopping mall, or other commercial property, you have a right to reasonable safety. Unfortunately, people are hurt and even killed when they visit these establishments due to negligent security measures. If a property owner or business failed to take the necessary steps to protect you and you suffered serious injury, or a loved one passed away, you may be entitled to financial compensation. This compensation can help you recover your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.

Filing a claim against a business to recover compensation is never easy. Our Florence negligent security lawyer can help you through the process, make sure your rights are upheld, and help you obtain the fair compensation you deserve.

What is Negligent Security?

Negligent security is an area of premises liability law that holds property owners and other parties responsible when they fail to install sufficient security measures on their property. Some of the most common examples of negligent security include:

  • Blocked emergency exits
  • Broken security cameras
  • Improper staffing levels
  • Inattentive or untrained security guards
  • Failure to screen for weapons
  • Insufficient lighting

Injuries Caused by Negligent Security

When a property does not have adequate security measures in place, other visitors to the property can become the victim of many different crimes. Stabbings, shootings, and sexual assault are just a few of these. All of these crimes can result in catastrophic injuries, including:

  • Gunshot wounds
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Deep puncture wounds
  • Paralysis
  • Amputations

Proving Negligent Security Claims

Negligent property owners, and the insurance companies who represent them, do everything they can to avoid paying victims the financial compensation they deserve. In many cases, they argue that they did not commit the assault, stabbing, or shooting and so, the criminal has sole responsibility. This is not always the case. Our Florence negligent security lawyer can prove a business or property owner is liable in the following ways:

  • Determine that reasonable security measures were not in place to protect the public on the premises,
  • Show that similar crimes had been committed on the same property in the past,
  • Show that a business developed reasonable security measures, but then failed to follow them,
  • Show that security personnel were not sufficiently trained for the job, or that they were not trained at all,
  • Obtain expert testimony regarding the best practices for similar establishments, and how the defendant failed to implement them, and
  • Find a breakdown of security measures, such as missing lights in parking lots or security guards who were texting at the time instead of monitoring the security cameras.
