Miami Beach Physical Abuse
Do you have a legal claim after a physical assault or battery in Miami Beach? Many people do not realize that if they have survived a battery or an assault, they may have a legal claim not only against the assailant in the situation but also against the property owner where the attack took place. The reality is that in many cases battery and assault as well as other crimes can be prevented with adequate supervision and adequate security.

Sadly, many instances of battery and assault need never happen at all because they are preventable. Some owners of workplaces and public properties do not take adequate care to provide a safe environment. For example, a property owner:
- May be negligent in providing adequate lighting
- May not take adequate steps to provide a safe environment, especially if it is known that an area has a high crime rate or recent crime activity
- May not take care of windows, doors, and other points of entry to secure them
- May not properly screen employees and others who have access to the property
- May not hire off-duty police officers or others to act as security on the property
- May not install security cameras or may fail to advertise that security cameras are in place
In all of these cases, it may be possible that the property owner was negligent in providing adequate security and may be held partly liable if an assault or battery took place on their property. This is especially the case if the property owner knew or should have known about a danger possible to visitors of the property.Get Legal Help About Your Case
If you have been injured in an assault, rape, battery, or other violent crime, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney as well as police officers in your case. Police officers can help you determine whether it is possible to file a criminal charge against the assailant. However, even if the assailant is never caught you may have a legal claim against other liable parties in order to seek compensation for any damages that you have suffered.
