Miami Inadequate Security Lawyers
Serious injuries can occur on private property that is owned by others. In Florida, property owners are legally responsible for providing a safe environment for those who are invited onto their premises. This includes providing adequate security, such as having trained security guards, cameras, and other proper security measures.
Property owners must take steps to maintain and secure their property in a way that any reasonable property owner would. If the property owner fails to implement reasonable security measures and someone is injured as a result of their negligence, the injured party could possibly file a negligent security claim.

The following is a list of just a few of the reasonable security measures that property owners may need to use on their property:
- Adequately lighting the premises.
- Maintaining locks in good repair and proper working condition.

Proving Negligent or Inadequate Security on a Property
In order to recover damages from a property owner in negligent security claims for lack of security on the owner’s property, the injured person must prove that:
- The property owner had a legal duty to provide security on the property;
- The property owner breached that legal duty by failing to provide security;
- The property owner’s failure to provide security caused the hurt person’s injuries; and
- The injured person suffered injuries for which the law allows compensation.
It may be helpful to show that other persons have been previously injured on the property and that the property owner did not address the hazardous conditions that caused those injuries.
If you or a loved one has been injured on another person’s property that lacked security, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, especially if others have been injured on those premises in the past. An experienced negligent security lawyer can help you determine if you have a valid claim and can assist you in navigating the complex legal process.
