Negligent Security

Negligent Security

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.

Our Tampa Negligent Security Attorneys represent clients in cases with property conditions that may be considered negligent including:

  • 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.

If you’ve been injured because of negligent security, contact Tampa personal injury attorneys at Hancock Injury Attorneys, 813-534-6319. Attorney Mike Hancock will speak with you about your case with no obligation to use our legal services.
