Coral Springs Inadequate Security

Have you been seriously injured through an act of violence or through some type of criminal activity? In many cases, you can pursue the person responsible for the attack through the criminal justice system. However, it is also important to seek compensation for your injuries, as the injuries sustained in an assault, battery, or robbery can be significant, especially if the perpetrator used a weapon. You may face time away from work, significant medical costs, and even permanent or long-term injury and rehabilitation needs. Even if you pursue a criminal case, you will not get money for these injuries.

Is the Property Owner Liable?

In many cases involving a criminal activity, the property owner where the activity took place may have been negligent in providing a safe area. In some situations, criminal activity happens in groups. That is, a property owner may know about criminal activity occurring in the area but may fail to take steps to prevent visitors to their property from experiencing the same problem.

In other cases, property owners are simply negligent in providing adequate, basic security on their property. They may fail to provide security systems, for example, or may fail to secure doors and windows or provide adequate lighting, all of which makes it easier for criminals to take advantage of these conditions in order to perpetrate crimes.

What to Do After an Attack

If you are injured in Coral Springs, your first priority is to get to safety and alert the authorities. If you have been assaulted, robbed, or otherwise attacked, authorities can seek the perpetrator and start the criminal process. You will also want to seek medical attention for any injuries right away. Even if you think you are fine, keep in mind that some serious injuries may not present symptoms right away. Seeking medical attention is also important since it allows you to start documenting evidence of your injuries.

You will also want to contact a personal injury attorney to review your legal options. Even if the perpetrator is never caught, you may have legal recourse. And even if the criminal who attacked you is placed behind bars, keep in mind that the criminal justice system will not usually secure compensation for you. Seeking a civil claim ensures that you can seek compensation that can help you in the healing process.
