Highly Experienced In Show Animal Matters

Is someone liable for the injuries you suffered in an attack?

Whether you live in the Miami-Dade County area or you are just visiting, you have the right to expect to be reasonably safe when you visit one of the area's many public places. Basic security measures such as lights and cameras help deter those who would take advantage of the darkness or the fact that no one is watching to cause you injuries. If a business owner or manager knew or should have reasonably known that the security measures were inadequate, a case for negligence could be made.

For example, something as simple as a bulb out on an exterior light might not seem like an emergency maintenance issue. Instead of changing the bulb before nightfall, the owner or manager decides to wait to do so. The darkened area then provides a would-be criminal with the cover of darkness that could put you in danger of being attacked.

Security cameras are often used by businesses to deter theft, but they also keep patrons and other visitors safe. An obviously non-functioning camera might make an assailant believe that he or she could attack you without being detected. These are just a couple of examples of lax security measures that could make a business owner responsible for the injuries you suffered on the premises.

You might not realize that in addition to any criminal charges brought against the perpetrator (if caught), you might be able to seek restitution for your injuries from the business on whose grounds you were hurt. In order to know for sure, it would be beneficial to discuss your situation with an attorney here in Miami-Dade County. If an investigation reveals that negligent security led to the frightening and tragic ordeal you went through, you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim.
