You have a right to be safe in parking lots and garages. Florida law requires business and property owners to protect customers, visitors and guests from preventable crimes.
Safety measures at a premise should include:
- Hiring appropriately trained security guards
- Employing and deploying guards in sufficient numbers on and about the property
- Properly assessing criminal activity in the area and creating a plan to reflect findings
- Providing proper lighting on the property
- Detecting any broken, malfunctioning, or failing security systems, and repairing them in a timely manner
- Placing security cameras throughout the property to capture and discourage criminal activity on the premises
- Using recognized methods of crime deterrence
We call failure to provide reasonable care "Negligent Security." Because of the heightened opportunity for assault, robbery or violent crime, property owners can face civil action when security measures are not in place.
At Rubenstein Law, we understand how upsetting and even painful it can be to suffer a violent assault, especially one that could have been prevented by simple security measures. While money doesn't make everything better, it can help with hospital bills, lost wages, and medical expenses incurred from an attack.
