Florida Crime Victims
Coral Springs personal injury lawyers, we represent victims of negligent security and who are physically and/or
emotionally injured or killed as a result of rapes, muggings, robberies,
assaults, shootings and other crimes in South Florida. When places such
as hotels and motels, shopping centers, malls, apartment complexes and
condominiums, nightclubs, restaurants, clubs, and other privately owned
properties fail to provide adequate security measures to protect patrons
or people lawfully on their property, a victim of a crime, or in the case
of wrongful death, their family members, may have a case for negligent security.
Amongst the numerous cases we have handled, our law firm is presently handling
a Fort Lauderdale security negligence case involving two women who were
stabbed at a nightclub on Broward Boulevard. Had this club adequately
screened patrons for weapons, this incident would likely have never occurred.
Clubs with a history of violation should clearly have security procedures
to check for weapons being brought into establishments, particularly where
large numbers of people gather, and where alcohol is served. As a result
of the inadequate security at the downtown Ft. Lauderdale nightclub, our
clients suffered personal injuries and damages including:
- Serious bodily harm
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Physical impairment
- Mental Anguish
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
- Medical Expenses, loss of income
Our firm also represented the victim of security negligence at a racetrack
in Hallandale, Florida. This particular case of inadequate security involved
a groom who, while working for a horse trainer at the race track, was
hit over the head with an ax, rendering him blind and with other serious
injuries. Our law firm sued the race track for inadequate security and
reached a settlement which provided security for him for the rest of his
life. For more information on this case, please visit the Verdicts and
Settlements section on our website. As a result of handling the first
case, we were also hired to represent another person who was beaten there
as a result of inadequate security. The horse track refused to voluntarily
pay on that case, so we had to go to trial, where we were successful and
obtained a verdict in favor of the injured victim.
Another security negligence case we have handled involves three elderly
clients who were robbed and severely beaten by unknown assailants after
exiting the vehicle they were in and walking in the parking lot of a restaurant
on Oakland Park Boulevard. We obtained a recovery for all three of them
after filing a lawsuit against the restaurant.
We also represented a woman whose vehicle was essentially carjacked while
she made a bank deposit at a shopping center in Margate, Florida. After
filing the lawsuit, the shopping center paid to settle the case.
Factors we use to determine whether to take a negligent security case include:
- The extent of the injury
- The foreseeability of criminal activity
- The preventability of the crime had reasonable security been provided
To investigate whether to handle a case, our firm obtains a history from
the surrounding local police departments to ascertain whether similar
incidents have occurred on or near the property. Prior similar incidents
help to establish foreseeability of the crime, which may be essential
to prove a case of negligent security.
