Fort Myers Personal Injury Attorneys File Claims for Inadequate Security
Each year nationwide and across the state of Florida, people are attacked, assaulted, raped, injured, and even killed on business and residential properties whose owners fail to provide adequate security. These property owners have a duty to exercise reasonable care to the people who might enter onto their property, and this duty includes the responsibility of providing adequate security in order to ensure the safety of visitors on their property. Adequate security measures might include hiring nighttime security to patrol the premises, installing surveillance cameras, utilizing security gates and ensuring that the premises are adequately lit at night. The Fort Myers personal injury lawyers of the Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A., are trained to investigate incidents of inadequate security. Our attorneys will determine why the incident occurred and seek to hold the property owner accountable for the injuries that occured as a result of such incidents.
All too often, victims receive no prior warnings about the dangers of a property before entering onto it, including prior criminal activity that has occurred on the property or in the surrounding area. Our experienced Fort Myers personal injury attorneys hire professionals to obtain crime data information from local police and sheriff departments to show the extent of criminal activity that occurred on the property before the date of the incident. Many times, the owner or manager of the property is aware of the extent of criminal activity on the property, but fails to warn the victim in advance. This results in criminals coming onto the property and committing crimes because they are well-acquainted with the lack of security on that particular property. The resulting crimes can be horrific for the victim. Often the attack results in property crimes such as robbery, but sometimes they result in crimes against people, such as assault or rape. Victims of incidents which may have been avoided with proper security measures or posted warnings of criminal activity can pursue compensation by holding the property owner responsible for any injuries that resulted from those crimes.
If you or a family member has been the victim of an attack, assault, rape, or any type of accidental injury occurring on a property, please contact the Fort Myers personal injury attorneys of the Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A., immediately for a free consultation about any potential inadequate security claim that you may have against the property owner.
