Hollywood Inadequate Security
Workplaces, schools, shops, and other public places are expected to have adequate security in order to make residents, visitors, and patrons safe. When property owners fail to provide a safe space, victims who are injured as a result of crimes that take place on the property may pursue a legal claim in order to seek compensation for pain and suffering, injuries, medical bills, and other costs related to their injuries.

In many inadequate security cases in Hollywood and across South Florida, a legal claim is made when a victim is injured in an attack or in an act of violence that has occurred because the property is unsafe. A property may be considered unsafe because:
- There are inadequate security measures, such as alarm systems, at the premises
- There is inadequate lighting in some or all areas
- The property owner knew or should have known about similar crimes in the area but failed to act to protect others
- There is inadequate security for keeping dangerous people out of the property
- The windows, doors, and locks are kept in poor repair
- Access to doors and locks is too widespread
- There is little or no screening for employees and people who enter the premises
If you have been the victim of a crime on a property that has not been properly secured – whether that property is a parking garage, a restaurant, or another business property -- you may have a premises liability claim. In many cases, there may already be criminal charges pending against the person who has injured you. However, keep in mind that criminal charges will usually not result in compensation for your injuries.
Even if the perpetrator is founded held guilty in a court of law, you may not get money or compensation to pay for your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses after your attack. If you have suffered a serious attack, however, your expenses may be considerable. Pursuing a legal claim against all liable parties helps secure these financial resources so that you can pay for these costs without financial distress. Pursuing a legal claim also holds the perpetrator and other liable parties accountable. It can ensure that important safety changes are made to the property so that others are not victimized as well.
