Owners of shopping malls, hotels, motels and other commercial properties have a responsibility for the safety of their guests, including safety from criminal activities such as robberies, rapes and other assaults. If you are injured as a result of negligent security, you have a right to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Is the Property Owner Responsible for a Criminal Attack?
Negligent security cases are covered by an area of law known as premises liability. Examples of property conditions that may be considered negligent include:
- Inadequate or missing lighting
- Missing locks or deadbolt on hotel windows or doors
- Inadequate security guards or lack of police patrols
- Lack of surveillance cameras that could be used to deter crime
- Untrimmed shrubs or other areas where criminals may hide near ATMs
Obtaining compensation in these cases usually requires evidence of a risk to guests, failure by the property owner to address those risks, and an experienced and persistent attorney. Our lawyers will investigate crime reports for the area to determine if property owners were aware of or should have been aware of criminal activities in the area.
From our office in Tampa, we represent crime victims in the Tampa Bay area, including St. Petersburg and Clearwater, and throughout Florida.
