North Miami Beach Inadequate Security

In many cases, people see crimes as simply a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. However, there are often indicators ahead of time that a crime will occur. For example, crimes usually tend to happen in bursts, with one area experiencing a number of crimes. In addition, criminals often look for poorly maintained and poorly secured properties in order to perpetrate their crimes. When property owners take proper care of their premises and offer adequate security, many crimes can be prevented. When property owners are negligent in this regard and a crime occurs, survivors and injured parties have the right to pursue not only criminal charges against their assailant but also premises liability claims in North Miami Beach against the property owner.

The personal injury attorneys at Flaxman Law Group work with law enforcement, security experts, private investigators, and other professionals to seek compensation on behalf of our clients. Even in cases where the attacker is never caught, it may be possible to launch an inadequate security claim in North Miami Beach or your community. To find out more and to learn whether you have a case, you can contact Flaxman Law Group for a free consultation.
