Homestead Inadequate Security

Property owners have an obligation to provide adequate security for tenants, employees, visitors, and customers or patrons. Business owners, especially, have an obligation to ensure that the business premises are safe for visitors, potential customers, and others who visit the property.

Has Inadequate Security Resulted In Injuries To You?

It can often be difficult to tell whether inadequate security has led to your injuries. If you have been the victim of a crime, however, it is useful to speak with a personal injury attorney in Homestead in order to find out whether you have an inadequate security claim. In many cases, property owners can take steps to help prevent crimes from occurring on their property. For example, they can ensure that entrances are secure and well lit and they can take extra precautions if they know that there are crimes being committed in the area. If a property owner does not take these types of steps and you are injured as a result, you may have a legal claim and may be able to pursue compensation.

Pursuing a legal claim in an inadequate security case can do several things:

  • It can send the message that everyone is responsible for stopping crime
  • It can push property owners to be more careful about creating safe areas
  • It can secure compensation for victims for medical care and other expenses
  • It can provide another avenue for victims to pursue justice – even if the perpetrators of the crime are never caught and brought to justice
