Florida law places a duty on property and business owners to protect persons legally on their premises from a criminal attack that is reasonably foreseeable. If you or a loved one was the victim of a violent crime and suffered serious injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. Negligent security incidents typically occur at places such as hotels, bars, clubs, restaurants, apartment complexes, and parking lots. Common injuries that are the result of negligent security can be:

  • Assault

  • Battery

  • Rape

  • Shootings

  • Stabbings

  • Death 

A property or business owner is expected to have adequate security measures in place to protect their guests. At Ruckle Law, P.A. we will review the facts of your case with seasoned experts in the security field to ascertain whether adequate security measures were in place at the time of your incident. Reasonable safety measures can include:

  • Adequate lighting

  • Surveillance cameras

Each incident arising from negligent security measures will be different based on certain facts such as location and the crime rate in that particular area.
