Premises Liability Lawyer

Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Florida

Property owners have a duty to provide adequate security to protect their visitors from criminal activity. The owner of a business, including property such as hotels, apartments, restaurants, clubs, and shopping centers, is responsible for the safety of persons who are lawfully on the property. Unfortunately, many owners fail to properly secure their premises, and serious injuries result. The West Palm Beach Personal Injury Lawyers at Ellis, Ged & Bodden, P.A. can assist victims who suffer serious bodily injury as a result of inadequate security.

What is inadequate security?

Inadequate security usually involves a breach of security at a commercial establishment or at an apartment complex. For example, a West Palm Beach premises liability lawyer may prove that the defendants knew, or should have known, that there was crime in the area, and that they failed to take adequate measures to light, patrol, and/ or secure the property. Under premises liability law, shopping centers, motels, warehouses, parking lots, ramps, decks, and other public places need to be made reasonably secure. Inadequate lighting, faulty locks and alarms, and failure to maintain high visibility can all be examples of a failure to provide adequate security.

If you or a family member is a victim of an assault, rape, murder, or other crime because of the failure of the owner or manager of a property to provide reasonable security, you may be entitled to damages for your losses. Those damages may include:

  • Lost wages or earning capacity
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Physical pain
  • Mental suffering
