Did You Get Injured Because Of Lax Security Measures?

Many businesses have security cameras or guards these days. The devices deter criminals but also record evidence. People are put in place to serve as deterrents, but they can spring into action when disasters strike too. Organizations use these professionals and equipment to leave patrons, clients, or residents feeling safe. There is certainly nothing wrong with that, and it will surely get them some brownie points. 

When tenants are content, they will pay rent on time and not cause many problems. Meanwhile, happy shoppers or customers can equal increased sales and profits. However, when lax security measures create situations where people get hurt, things can turn ugly in a hurry. Injured victims may be entitled to fair compensation for their damages.

A Store Fails To Fix Or Replace A Broken Parking Lot Camera

Let's say that a grocery store has signs posted that say their entire parking lot is monitored 24/7. Yet, when a camera that was covering Zone 3 breaks, they save themselves some money by leaving it as-is. Days later, a shopper gets mugged in that area. They are thrown to the ground, suffer a broken wrist, and get a brain injury. The individual is forced to lay there unconscious for quite some time until another customer sees them and offers assistance.

Instead of saving cash, the store in question could have cost itself a ton of money. Negligent security took place because the customer probably wouldn't have parked there if they knew the camera was busted. The company did not take action to fix the problem. Nor did they warn customers about it. If a situation like this one arises, please, don't hesitate to contact our office.

A Venue Doesn't Put Barriers Around An Electric Panel

Many Floridians attend concerts or other performances at various venues. If the general public is not blocked off from dangerous areas, people may deem them safe. For example, if an electric panel that powers the stage doesn't have a barrier around it, anyone and everyone can walk up to it. Not only can that wreak havoc on shows, but it can also be very dangerous. If a person touches something they shouldn't or a part shorts out, they could become shocked or electrocuted. 

The incident may leave them hurt or even cost them their life. All because the venue didn't use appropriate security measures. This is another type of scenario that can lead to a business getting sued.

The Security Team Doesn't React To A Robbery

How many times have you seen a movie showing security guards kicked back and watching TV? The answer is probably too many to count. However, this isn't an issue that only happens within shows. It occurs in real life, as well. Let's say that a person is shopping on a retail store's aisle. When bam, they are hit in the face by a criminal, who, in turn, steals their watch and wallet. Had the guards been watching the security monitors instead of TV, they could have sprung into action.

Yet, because things were the other way around, the thief gets away with everything, and the customer is left knocked out cold on the floor, bleeding. This is another example of lax security measures that cause lawsuits.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
