Did you or a loved one get seriously injured due to inadequate security? Check out these 3 negligent security tips, then contact our Florida lawyer today.
1. Negligent Security Attacks From an Employee
Sometimes an assailant is an employee of a business where the client was going. Since the assailant was an employee, can a client still sue the business? The answer is yes. There are legal issues that come up that have to be addressed. If it meets the criteria of the law in the state of Florida about employees or employers, then you can successfully prosecute a negligent security case against that business.
Remember, the case may not be just against the business. It might be with the security company. There are any number of defendants that are available. It’s a more complicated case when it’s an employee. If you have that situation, do not hesitate to call us if your situation occurred in Duval County or Nassau County.
We’ll sit down with you and discuss with you those issues, and figure out the best way to move forward with your case.
2. Injured or Assaulted Due to Negligent Security
When people come to us with what they think is a case of getting attacked in front of a convenience store or in front of a business or any other place, they want to know what’s going to happen. Their world has been turned upside down. Several things happen very quickly. Law enforcement gets involved. There’s prosecution.
The client has a duty and responsibility to cooperate with the criminal investigation, if the police can find the criminal. If you get a lawyer involved early on, we can track that and walk alongside that and at the same time do our investigation about what kind of security was there. Different kinds of cases require different kinds of security.
For example, we had a case several years ago where we represented a man and a woman who were shot at their apartment complex in an area in Jacksonville that was known as a high crime area. We discovered this was a gated apartment complex. We discovered there were several breaches in the fencing around the exterior. We discovered that the guard shack where the arm that goes up and down was broken. It was not manned much of the time. The assailant had almost a free pass to get in.
We were able to do that investigation because the clients came to us early on. We did get some assistance with the criminal investigation. Those are things that you can expect. Some of it happens very quickly. Some of it happens over time. If you have what you think is a case due to a lack of security in Nassau County or Duval County, call us early on so that we can get involved in the process soon and figure out how best we can help you.
