Tamarac Inadequate Security
If you have been injured in an assault, sexual assault, mugging, robbery, or other serious crime, who is liable? In many cases, the perpetrator of the crime is of course the prominent person responsible. The attacker can be held liable and criminal charges may be filed against this person if they can be found. In addition, however, many people don't realize that the property owner where the crime took place may also be held partly liable if he or she failed to take actions to keep the property safe.
If you have sustained an injury in any type of criminal activity, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney in Tamarac to get a full and honest appraisal of all your legal options. Surviving a serious injury can result in months of lost income as well as months or years of medical expenses and treatment. You should not have to face these costs alone if your injuries were caused through no fault of your own. You can always consult with Flaxman Law Group in a free, no obligation case review to evaluate your situation and to get an honest legal opinion about your options.

How can you know whether you have a legal claim after surviving a violent crime? There are many examples where someone may have a claim:
- A woman is assaulted while walking alone in a poorly-lit parking lot in an area where there have been a rash of attacks against women
- A store has no security features and a patron is the victim of a strong arm robbery, or a robbery where no weapon is used but where the robber uses force or threats
- A condo or apartment building has poorly maintained windows and doors and tenants are victimized by burglars
- A bank does not hire security guards or take other precautions and some patrons are injured by armed robbers in a hold-up
- A bar or club has no bouncers or security and patrons are assaulted in a brawl that breaks out
Any time that you are injured by violence on a property where poor security and maintenance may have played a role, you will want to consult with a persona injury attorney to discuss your options. If the attack took place on a commercial or business property, especially, you may have a claim, since business owners have an even higher duty of care to patrons and visitors.Are You Looking for a Personal Injury Attorney?
