When you need to go to the grocery store, shopping mall, bank, or some other place you regularly run errands to, you can usually count on those locations being safe. The business owners have a duty to ensure that their patrons are safe. How can they do this?
By taking steps to prevent and deter crime, business owners are creating a welcoming environment.
Consider the following:
All of these locations should be protected as well. Many times, these types of government establishments will have law enforcement protection, but many do not. The ones that do not should have private security in place to ensure everyone can safely access these vital offices.
Florida is a great place to live, but criminals are here, too. In 2017, there were a total of 85,558 violent crimes and 552,513 property crimes across the state. When we talk about crime, we don’t do it in the abstract – we know it can happen to you. That’s why we strongly believe that property owners who fail to provide adequate security are negligent in their duties and should be held accountable.
If you are injured as a result of a crime or whether you just lost property, your wounds will be deep. Crime can leave a lasting emotional impact which can require counseling for years.
If you a criminal was able to take advantage of you because a property owner failed to secure their premises, you need to seek legal advice. You should have been safe when you went out. While we know we can’t undo the crime that happened to you, we can make sure you get the compensation you deserve to help alleviate some of the pain.
You need compensation for your injuries, both physical and emotional. If your property was stolen, you need to be able to replace it.
