Negligent security cases often involve two distinct types of torts. There is the intentional tort committed by the person or people who assaulted you, and there is the property owner’s tort of failing to maintain reasonably safe conditions on his or her property. Most of our practice deals with landlords, malls, hotels, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, homeowners and others maintaining unsafe properties in the Miami area and throughout Florida.
Our firm works closely with safety and medical experts to evaluate the property conditions; to measure how those conditions meet or fail to meet basic safety requirements, including local, state and federal building codes; and to put all of that information together in a clear and compelling way. In many cases, the detailed preparation we put into each case from the beginning pays dividends in the form of fair settlement offers from those who would rather not risk seeing what happens when our evidence is put in front of a jury.
If negotiations fail to produce a settlement that is acceptable to you, rest assured we will be ready to vigorously represent your interests at every level of Florida’s state and federal court system, including on appeal.
