Did Negligent Security Result In A Crime Against You?
You have a right to expect safety when you patronize a business. This includes when you park your car on their property, when you shop inside and when you leave. However, those are the exact moments that some criminals choose to attack. Could the business have prevented the crime with adequate security measures? And if so, what should you do?
At Wells Law Group, P.A., we have represented clients around Tampa who were robbed, assaulted or worse, while they were at the mall, staying at a hotel or out for a night on the town. Businesses will often try to blame you for what happened, but the fact is that the business owners can be liable as well. If they are, our attorney will fight for your rights.

What Is Negligent Security?
Businesses should take a number of security precautions to prevent crimes from occurring on their premises, especially if they are aware of risks to their patrons. If they fail to take basic precautions, crimes against patrons is an unavoidable outcome. Common security failings include:
- Improperly trained security officers
- Inadequate lighting or overgrown greenery, which provides cover for assailants
- Broken locks
- Lack of security cameras or other surveillance
- Mistakenly hiring staff with serious criminal backgrounds
If you were robbed, were assaulted or experienced some other crime at a place of business, it could be directly related to failed security. Our experienced staff and consultants can assess the situation, document the conditions and help you build a case.
