Even with the most stringent security measures in place, some acts of violence at stores or businesses may not be preventable; however, by implementing proven security measures, some attacks may be discouraged. Owners of public places with a history of safety problems have a duty to provide a reasonable level of security to visitors to deter future crimes. If you have been hurt due to insufficient safety measures, a Florida negligent security lawyer may be able to help you pursue compensation. For a free consultation, call 1-888-BURNETTI.
