What is Negligent Security?

Negligent security is when a property owner is not taking adequate measures to ensure the safety of their guests and visitors. This can include failing to provide proper lighting, guards or alarms, which could have prevented an attack from happening.

Negligent security includes:

  • Failing to properly train security personnel
  • Not maintaining proper lighting on the premises
  • Leaving dangerous objects in public areas without warning signs


If you are a victim of a heinous crime that could have been prevented if certain security measures had been taken, working with a skilled Tampa negligent security injury lawyer can help ensure that you get fair compensation.

What Types of Damages Are Available to Victims of Negligent Security?

In order to recover damages in a negligent security case, you must be able to prove that the owner is aware or should have known about the dangerous condition on their premises and did not take initiatives to fix it.

You will also need to show that you were attacked on the property and suffered injuries as a result. If you are able to prove these elements, you may be able to recover damages for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Punitive damages

What is the Owners Responsibility?

First of all, it is up to the owner of the Tampa premises by law to make sure that those who enter the property are able to carry on with their activities safely and without fear of an attack. Sadly, there are many property owners who simply don't care about this key requirement.

But there is hope. If you or a loved one has been attacked on someone's property in Tampa, you can sue the property owner and get a settlement to make up for any medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages that resulted from such an attack. These injuries are classified as a personal injury and you deserve compensation.

Tampa Requirements to Prove Negligent Security Personal Injury Accident Claim

But there are some things you need to know about negligent security. You, as the victim, have to prove that you were first injured by a third party on the property owner's property.

Second, the property owner didn't take the proper precautions or measures to prevent the situation from happening. Convenience stores are textbook examples of situations like this. Whatever those precautions may be, you must prove that the measures were not taken.

The second thing you should bear in mind is that your injury has to be foreseeable to receive a settlement. This is the part that the property owner's lawyers will fight tooth and nail to win. Their client will not only be paying you damages but may also be facing criminal charges for the negligence that could have cost you your life.
