Seeking Compensation From A Property Owner After An Attack

Injuries suffered due to a criminal act typically are not considered the fault of property or business owners in Florida. However, if negligence can be established, then the business or property owner can be held liable for a victim's injuries.

Negligence in security incidents is typically defined as a failure to take reasonable measures to prevent a criminal act from occurring when it is foreseeable that one could happen. Disregarding repairs on security cameras for extended periods of time and failing to install proper lighting in dark or poorly lit areas are just two examples of negligence that could lead to an assault or armed robbery that could result in serious or catastrophic injuries for a victim.

Proving that a property or business owner's negligence led to a security incident takes a determined attorney who will conduct a thorough investigation, protect your rights and hold an owner responsible for their negligence. For more than 30 years in the Miami Beach area, that attorney has been Pedro A. Cofiño of Cofiño Trial Law. He has dedicated his career to helping people seek justice in negligent security, and he can do the same for you.
