Regardless of the cause of your injuries, if negligent building security played a role, you need an experienced Port St. Lucie premises liability lawyer on your side.
Inadequate Security in Florida
As you can imagine, there are a wide array of places where inadequate security would be an issue. Unfortunately, oftentimes, a lack of security can have very serious ramifications, especially if the lack of security failed to observe an injury. Some of the most common places where we see negligent security leading to an accident are as follows:
- Apartment Buildings
- Nursing Homes
- Department Stores
Proving Your Claim
If you were injured because of a lack of security, you and your Port St. Lucie negligent building security lawyer will have to gather and present sufficient evidence to prove the following:
- Knew of the defective security device (e.g., broken door lock), or with the exercise of reasonable care should have learned about it
- Had enough time to install or repair the security device
- Failed to install or repair the security device
- A properly maintained minimal security device likely would have prevented the trespasser from gaining entrance into the building and attacking you
Since in most cases, injuries involving negligent security are not captured on film, it is paramount that the injured party does everything in his or her power to document the incident. This can include taking pictures of the cause of your injuries, asking witnesses for their contact information, and ensuring that you receive medical treatment at once. Our firm can then take this evidence and fight for the compensation you need.
