Knowing Who is at Fault
At Scott J. Sternberg & Associates, P.A., we are experienced in successfully representing those who have been the victims of negligent security. One of the major challenges in any such case is deciding who is at fault, and which party or parties should be named in a personal injury lawsuit.
Which parties may be at fault is determined by various factors, including, in part, the manner in which the property is being used, the plaintiff’s relationship to the property including the reason for their being on the premises, and issues related to the type of security provided and whether or not it was adequate.

If you bring a West Palm Beach negligent security lawsuit, it is essential that you file suit against the appropriate parties. Not doing so can result in the viability of your case being in jeopardy, or, even, in your case being dismissed by the court.
Even in instances when it seems clear as to whom the responsible parties are, there may be special circumstances and intricacies that complicate issues, resulting in other parties being at fault.
Injuries Due to Negligence
Negligent security can result in an individual experiencing severe injuries, trauma, emotional damage, and, even, death. You may find that you have mounting medical bills, lost wages, and ongoing psychological and physical issues. Pain and suffering, future medical bills, and an inability to earn a living may all be a result of the injuries that you suffered due to security issues.
Negligent security cases may be based on various circumstances and situations including damages and injuries that are related to insufficient lighting, inadequate video monitoring, compromised locks or security systems, or under use or misappropriation of security personnel.
Negligent security often results in criminal actions during which the victim is injured. Such crimes include, but are not limited to, mugging, rape, and criminal assault. The criminal acts often involve violence. In cases in which negligent security is at issue and a crime has been committed, the victim of the crime may be able to recover damages.
It is very difficult for an individual to determine if they have a viable negligent security claim, and, if they do, in what manner they should pursue their lawsuit. It is important to contact West Palm Beach Negligent Security Lawyer who is experienced, knowledgeable, and successful in representing plaintiffs in negligent security cases.
Plus, anyone who has been the victim of a crime and negligence, and in such cases the victim has often suffered in both matters, is often confused, traumatized, and experiencing a wide range of emotions.
A person who is dealing with such complex issues needs someone who can be objective, focused, and diligent in their efforts to ensure that they receive the compensation that they deserve.
A savvy, seasoned negligent security lawyer, such as those at Scott J. Sternberg & Associates, P.A., will provide you with the legal expertise, passion for justice, and complete commitment that you and your cases demands.
A Few Examples of Violations
The situations in which Florida’s negligent security law may have been violated are various and numerous. Many civil lawsuits concerning negligent security are the result of a person being the victim of either a violent assault or robbery.
Common settings for such crimes include office buildings, shopping malls, parking garages and lots, and motels and hotels. Other areas where individuals may be vulnerable include schools, college campuses, condominiums, bars, restaurants, and ATMs.
Often in such instances, the victim will first blame his or herself. This is a common reaction. However, it’s important to understand that when someone is on the premises of another that the person who owns or who in some manner oversees or operates that property or business has a responsibility to provide for the safety and security of those who have entered onto it.
It is rare for a person who has been injured in a negligent security case to be liable for their own injuries and damages.
