Negligent Security Claims in South Florida

For a plaintiff to successfully prevail in a negligent security claim, a plaintiff must show that the landowner failed to meet their duty to discover similar prior criminal activity conducted by a third party or failed to adequately warn visitors to avoid injury or harm. Moreover, a plaintiff must also prove that they were lawfully present on the premises where the injury occurred and that the harm or injury by a third party was reasonably foreseeable to the property owner and could have been prevented if the property owner had implemented security measures. The key issue in these types of premises liability cases is the concept of foreseeability and its relation to causation. Overall, adequate or proper security for a particular property will vary and will ultimately depend  on the facts and circumstances of each case. Some examples or ideas for landowners may include security guards, lighting, locks, etc. However, it is important to note that in the state of Florida, some landowners that take certain precautions and implement security measures enjoy a presumption against liability for third party criminal attacks. Specifically, with respect to convenience store owners. Convenience store owners that install security camera systems, notify customers that the register contains less than $50, use drop safes, etc. enjoy a presumption against liability if sued by an injured business invitee.
