Negligent Security

Negligent Security Attorney in Clearwater, FL

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. John Andreopoulos has experience in dealing with these negligent security cases. He has been practicing personal injury law in Clearwater and the surrounding area for over six years. John has the skill set required to aggressively pursue justice for his clients. If a property owner or business has failed in their duty to provide reasonable safety and security measures, they may be liable for damages.  John offers a free initial consultation so you have nothing to lose by having him evaluate your case.

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 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.

Experienced in Negligent Security Cases

John Andreopoulos has handled many cases that involve negligent security. Oftentimes, hotels, nightclubs, and bars fail to maintain the level of security needed at such venues. If a crime has been committed and you’ve suffered injuries that may have been prevented if the property owner had taken appropriate security measures, you may be entitled to damages.  Always bear in mind that these cases have a statute of limitations, so filing a claim must be done in a timely fashion.

The sooner you bring your case to us for review, the better. John can obtain statements from witnesses, secure video surveillance, and gather all the relevant information needed to pursue your case. It’s generally easier to get this information soon after the event.  As time passes, it becomes more challenging to gather the necessary evidence and information.

What our clients have to say…

Claudia Christodoulakis

him. Immediately, he was able to get me to a phenomenal doctor, that gave me a shot in my arm that relieved the pain temporarily until further tests were done. John was amazing, and very easy to get a hold of. If he wasn’t available, his assistant Tammy was so kind and knowledgeable. If there was something she couldn’t help me with, John would call shortly after. I couldn’t ask for better representation! John and his staff made it so that all I had to do was focus on getting better. He exceeded my expectations, and was able to get me the settlement that I deserved for my injuries. God forbid, but if I ever need a personal injury lawyer in the future, I will call John immediately. Not those stupid commercials you hear on the radio all the time, but knowledgeable, kind, and completely in your corner. Thank you so much John and Tammy, you helped me in so many ways!
