West Palm Beach Negligent Security Lawyer David J. Glatthorn - Expect More
Property owners have a responsibility to take security measures that keep visitors reasonably safe from assaults. This includes the owners of apartment complexes, parking lots, hotels, bars, nightclubs and other places where people are allowed to enter or which are open to the public.
Security measures can include hiring security personnel (such as bouncers, attendants or guards), improving lighting, installing locks and putting up cameras. Reasonable measures such as these can help provide some protection. When these measures are not taken, people can get hurt.
Assault can hurt people in different ways. They can suffer physically, requiring medical treatment. There can be emotional and psychological effects that remain long after the attack. They can also suffer financially - the cost of medical and psychological treatment can be expensive, and victims may also be unable to work temporarily. If negligent security led to an attack, David Glatthorn Law holds property owners accountable.
