Unsafe Premises And Your Accident Recovery
If you are recovering from an assault or were injured in an attack, you likely have expenses to address as you move toward healing, fees from medical care and mental health counseling costs, for example. And when a person or organization did not provide adequate security or maintain a reasonably safe environment, a negligent security claim could be possible.
Failing to see through on the duty of care can be difficult to prove, but legal professionals who have worked on similar cases understand the best path forward for each unique situation. Connect with a Miami personal injury lawyer to have the details of your injury and the precautions that were not taken assessed. Compensatory damages for injury expenses have been secured for past clients, and experienced attorneys can help.
Laws Are In Place to Protect You
When it comes to crime, there are laws in place to protect you. And if you are hurt in the course of a crime, there are personal injury laws that can help you heal when a business or organization does not provide the safe space that the public expects. For instance, the following failures in security measures could lead to a claim.
- Security cameras are broken, absent, or not kept in good condition with regular checks and repairs.
- Walkways, hallways, and corridors do not have enough lighting.
- Locks are not functioning on windows, doors, and gates.
- Safety personnel, such as security guards, not present or ineffectively trained.
Naturally, some of these issues happen from time to time, but once they are noticed they need to be fixed as soon as possible. So if the lock on the gate of your condo building is broken, residents should be alerted and the lock needs to be promptly repaired. If management and owners are aware of the broken lock and ignore it, a claim could be possible if that broken security feature results in a criminal entering the area and inflicting harm.
