Everyone likes to feel safe and secure. Unfortunately, individuals sometimes have a false sense of security, and when they are supposed to be safe, they might not be. This is known as negligent security and this can result in harm and injury to someone.
Florida law requires a property owner and management company to protect persons legally on the property from the criminal acts of others. In today’s society where levels of crime have substantially increased, the law recognizes that keeping a property safe for occupants, visitors and shoppers, will also include a duty to take reasonable measures to protect against criminal acts.
We conduct crime surveys showing the history of crime in the area and the type of security that should be provided on the property that is commensurate with that level of crime. Most commercial insurance policies will provide coverage to property owner for negligent security claims.
