Did you know that a property owner or business has a duty to provide a safe environment for patrons? Establishments like hotels, banks, universities, restaurants, and even apartment complexes must meet certain standards associated with security and safety. If they fail to meet these standards, they may be liable if a crime occurs and an individual is injured. In short property owners have a legal obligation to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe and secure for patrons.
When property owners or business staff fail to take appropriate measures to secure their environment and a crime occurs, leaving a patron injured or even killed, the injured party or family of the deceased can sue for compensation.

Failure to Provide a Safe or Secure Setting
Many venues advertise that they offer a safe environment. In Florida, it’s quite commonplace to hear hotels and motels advertise their safety and security measures. However, sometimes these claims of security are misleading and the venue hasn’t actually taken steps to provide a safe setting. Are the property’s security cameras working properly? Has the facility’s security gate been in a state of disrepair for some time? Should a crime occur, the owners or management of the facility may be liable for damages because they failed in their duty to take reasonable steps to prevent the crime from occurring.
Some common types of safety and security breaches Attorney John Andreopoulos has seen include:
- Failure to provide security personnel for an event (or failure to hire enough personnel)
- Insufficient lighting
- Unsecured entrances
- Security gates in disrepair
- Lack of security guards
- Lack of video surveillance
- Improperly trained personnel
These are just a few examples of security breaches. When a business fails in its obligation to take appropriate safety and security measures, its patrons are at risk.
