Sooner or later clients in a negligent security case want to know the value of the case. Determining that value requires several considerations, some of which don’t appear until later in the case. In negligent security cases we have to establish the owner of the premises, whether there was a management company. What kind of breach in the security was there? Was it a matter of lights not being posted? Was it a matter of security guards not being present and whether it was a high crime area requiring those types of measures to be implemented?Many of those considerations we don’t know until we start digging into the case, assessing the severity of your injuries and whether you’ve lost time from work. It’s a process that takes time. It’s not a determination that can be made or should be made at the very beginning of the case. When clients ask if we know the value of a case at an initial consultation, we tell them we don’t know, which is true. Lawyers who have been around these cases for decades like us know that values of cases can go up or down once we get into cases. It’s not responsible to put a hard and fast value on a case at the very beginning. Those are the things that go into valuing a case. If you think you’ve got a case where you’ve been hurt because of lack of security in Nassau County, Duval County, or any of the surrounding areas, call us. We’ll sit down with you, talk about the case, gather the facts, and figure out how best to help you.
