It’s no secret that we live in a dangerous society today. Individuals are sadly the victims of fraud, assault, and other forms of violence that often result in serious injuries or even death. Often times these accidents and occurrences can be prevented or helped by employing and installing proper security measures.
The state of Florida mandates a negligent security law, which protects those who suffer injuries or even wrongful death due to the negligence of a property owner or manager, security firm, organization or other individuals or entities responsible for ensuring the safety of those who visit a particular property.
If an individual or his or her family has suffered injuries, pain, suffering, or even wrongful death due to an accident or assault that occurred on a particular property or premises, then that individual or family may be entitled to a proper settlement due to a lack of security, or negligent security under Florida state law.
Who is at Fault?
At Sternberg / Forsythe, P.A., we have the experience and skills necessary to properly represent victims and their families who have been the victims of negligent security. One of the biggest challenges in any negligent security case is determining which party is at fault. A licensed and professional Florida negligent security attorney can help determine who is at fault by researching how the property is being used, the individual’s relationship to the property including the reason for their being on the premises, and whether or not proper security measures were adequate.
Injuries Due to Negligence
Any injuries or wrongful death sustained from negligent security can include severe injuries, trauma, emotional damage, and even death. Individuals, victims, and their families often find that they have also incurred significant debt due to medical bills and lost wages, and even ongoing psychological and physical issues and trauma. As a result, a victim and his or her family may be entitled to a proper settlement.

Negligent security cases may be determined and acted on due to various circumstances and situations such as any minor or severe damages or injuries due 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 as an attack, assault, or other act of violence.
We at Scott J. Sternberg and Associates recognize that no two negligent security cases are the same. Each victim has his or her own case that is treated with the same compassion, attention, and dedication to ensure that an individual and his or her family receive the proper care and compensation that they deserve.
