Each year, thousands of people are victimized or attacked by a third party on property owned or operated by a business. These incidents are often preventable with adequate security. However, many property and business owners cut costs, which results in negligent security for customers.

In Florida, property owners and businesses may be held liable for robberies, attacks, rape, assaults or homicides that occur from inadequate security.

In most cases, injuries from negligent security occur at:

  • hotels and motels
  • restaurants and bars
  • apartment complexes
  • shopping centers
  • parking lots
  • ATMs
  • places of employment
  • school campuses

Without proper security, attacks can occur in the most public of places and at any time of day. However, many of these incidents occur as a result of improper lighting, lack of deterrence, surveillance cameras or safety policies.

In many cases, businesses and property owners are made aware of negligent security by past occurrences, but fail to take appropriate steps or hire security guards that will prevent them from happening again. Over time, insurance companies and business organizations have attempted to reduce the protection available to victims of negligent security. However, the team at Riley Allen Law continues to fight for the rights of those injured.

In recent cases, we have recovered millions for those injured when insurance companies or corporate legal counsel offered little. Please check our past results for details.
