Negligent Security

Are you a victim of negligent security?


Seeking compensation for assault caused by inadequate security

Have you or a member of your family become the victim of a property owner's negligence? Have you been attacked and injured by an intruder who gained access to your room or building because of malfunctioning locks on the lobby entrance door? Have you been physically attacked because a land owner failed to provide adequate lighting at a public place? If so, attorneys at the Law Office of Pelayo Duran will listen to the facts of your case and determine whether you have a valid claim for negligent security.

It is an unfortunate fact that people are assaulted and attacked every day in their homes, workplaces, hotels, shopping malls and stores. When such an assault occurs, the criminal justice system may punish the attacker with a jail sentence, but it does not compensate the victim for losses due to injury. The civil justice system however, does allow the victim or their surviving family to sue for compensation from the attacker and anyone else deemed to be responsible for the victim's injuries.

Owners of premises have a duty to use all reasonable means to maintain their property to a level of safety that will protect residents, employees and customers against foreseeable harm. Premises may become unsafe in a number of ways. Parking areas, passageways and entrances may have insufficient lighting, broken locks, inactive intercoms, and inadequate or malfunctioning electronic surveillance equipment.

When you need an experienced negligent security attorney to pursue a claim of this nature in Miami, you can rely on the Law Office of Pelayo Duran to assess the facts of your case, answer any questions you may have and advise on the best course of action.

  • Private residences
  • Common areas in residential complexes
  • Bars, nightclubs and restaurants
  • Hotels and Motels
  • Shopping malls and retail stores
  • Businesses that are open to the public
