Negligent Security Case Representation
By The North Law Firm, P.A.
The owners of commercial properties such as apartment complexes and nightclubs are responsible for violent crimes committed on their property. Violent crimes are assaults, batteries, robberies, burglaries, sexual assault, stabbings, and shootings.
If there is a history of crimes at the property location, then the law says that it is foreseeable or expected that these crimes may be committed on the property again. Therefore, the owner is required to take steps to provide reasonable security measures to prevent these foreseeable crimes from happening.

Reasonable security measures may include the following:
Well trained security guards, surveillance video cameras, gates/fences, proper lighting, metal detectors, functioning locks, a crime watch program, warnings, etc.
If the owner of an apartment complex or nightclub refuses to spend the money for adequate security measures, then the owner may be responsible for the injuries and/or death caused by violent crimes committed on the property.
The types of compensation available in Negligent Security cases include money compensation for lost wages, medical bills, mental anguish, and pain and suffering.
