In many cases, property owners know of crime waves in their area or realize that their properties are located in high crime areas. In these cases, property owners may be able to take steps in order to keep patrons and visitors safe from assault and other crimes. For example, they may be able to:
- Screen employees and visitors carefully
- Have security or off-duty police officers on the premises
- Install security cameras and place alerts on the property about the security cameras
- Install better lighting
- Have doors, windows, and other points of entry carefully maintained
- Install a security system
- Alert visitors of crime waves or other dangers
When property owners fail to act in order to prevent serious injuries to visitors, they may be held liable for any injuries that occur as a result of assault and other violent activity. If you have been injured, contact a personal injury attorney in Miami Springs or your community to find out whether you qualify for compensation under Florida law.
Even if a property owner was not negligent, you may have a legal claim. If the assault occurred in the workplace, for example, you may be able to seek workers compensation benefits.
