Negligent Security

Negligent Security Orlando & Central Florida Negligent Security Attorneys

While property owners are responsible for maintaining their premises in a way that helps visitors to their property avoid injuries, they also owe a duty to provide adequate security which can prevent assault, physical attack, robbery, or other violence. At Adams & Luka, our Orlando negligent security lawyers work vigorously to hold those who are liable accountable for their negligence.

Property owners must take sufficient security precautions to ensure the safety of visitors to their property. Depending on the type of property/circumstances, security may involve having video surveillance cameras installed, adequate lighting, added safety features or design of a property that decreases risk, even staffing of security personnel. Potential attackers or robbers often take advantage when properties lack security, which can result in physical injury, rape, robbery, or other serious crimes.

While an assailant can be held criminally liable, property owners may also be held responsible when they fail to put protective measures in place designed to enhance the safety and security of visitors. For instance, a hotel or apartment complex owner may fail to provide adequate lighting in hallways or stair wells, which makes these areas more dangerous for those on the premises.

Florida Negligent Security Attorneys Working Aggressively on Behalf of Injured Clients

Not only may property owners be held liable for negligent security, managers or landlords may also be held responsible in some cases. For example, if an apartment manager is responsible for keeping hallways brightly lit and ensuring security personnel are on duty but fails to do so, he/she may be held responsible for damages an injured victim incurs on the property.

Negligent security can occur anywhere, whether in a shopping mall, gas station, parking lot, hotel, casino, ATM kiosk, airport, amusement park, or other location. As nearly everyone is aware, crime rates have only increased over the years; our world today simply is not a safe place. As trusted Orlando personal injury lawyers, we will thoroughly review and evaluate your case to determine all parties who may be held responsible in our efforts to collect the full damages you deserve.

Client Reviews

I would like thank my attorney Thomas Luka. I knew from the beginning I had the right guy in my corner. While celebrating with family and friends at a Public Park in Seminole County, a fight broke out among various people. Myself, and a good friend, broke up the fight and the instigators left. Six months later, I was wrongly accused as the person who started the fight. The first attorney I hired could not even get a response from the State Attorney handling the case. Someone referred me to Tom and I felt comfortable at his demeanor and reactions.

After conversations with Tom, who knew I would settle for nothing less than a FULL DISMISSAL due to my innocence, I hired him. His firm of Adams and Luka did the due diligence by interviewing witnesses and the police who were on the scene, as well as starting a dialogue with the State Attorney. After gathering statements from witnesses, Tom was able to present a strong argument on my behalf to the State Attorney on why the case should be dismissed. If the State Attorney was not willing to dismiss the case, Tom was ready to take the case to trial.

The result by Thomas Luka: Case Dismissed.

I am 53 years old with a spotless record and glad to keep it that way thanks to the time, effort, hard work, and professionalism of the Adams and Luka and Tom Luka.

Thomas Luka left a life-long great impression of lawyers. He was always professional, on time, and answered things honestly. From the start and during the 14 months it went on - Tom was very upfront and honest with me about the possible outcomes. The result was better than I had hoped for. Tom really over-delivered. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Marcela Giorgi
