Claims For Negligent Security Are Serious Concerns!
A man walks into a bar—but not just any bar—your bar, restaurant, hotel, or nightclub, and chances are, this person entered the premises to enjoy the hospitality your business has to offer. If by chance this person ultimately acts to intentionally harm or commit a crime against another person while on your premises, you could be liable for these wrongful acts, although your business had no actual involvement in committing the act. Claims for negligent security are real and serious. While many premises liability claims arise from the more traditional scenarios such as slip and falls, where the claimant is seeking damages from the business owner for the business’s alleged wrongdoing, negligent security claims seek damages from business owners for the wrongdoing of an unrelated and often unknown third party.

Businesses must be safe for customers and guests.
Business and property owners are required by Florida law to produce a secure location for customers and guests. Adequate security for properties will vary from case to case. Some examples of negligent security are:
- No security present when the property owner knows about risks of attacks
- Prior attacks and no attempt at making the property safer
- Poor or damaged lighting
- Unlocked or broken gates or doors
- Untrained or poorly trained security guards
- Security guards not making appropriate rounds
