If you or your immediate family member suffered from a crime on another person’s property, you may be able to collect compensation from a negligent property owner. When the owner of a property does not take basic measures to make sure the location is safe for themselves and visitors, they endanger anyone who sets foot on the property.
Determining who may be liable in situations like these can be stressful. Ben Crump Law, PLLC can help you. Call our team at 800-896-1221 to speak to a team member who can tell you more.
A Lawyer Can Determine the Liable Party or Parties
Aside from the owner of the property, many people might not be able to think of any other potentially liable parties in the event of a crime. However, there are several avenues individuals may be able to explore.
If there was a malfunction in the security system a property owner used that enabled someone to enter the premises without permission, the security company may be liable. Additionally, if there was a broken city-owned streetlight that gave an assailant cover to assault or rob you, the municipal department in charge of monitoring and fixing public amenities, such as streetlights, may be liable.

If You Are Scared to Pursue Legal Action for Fear of Blame
Some victims fear they will be blamed for events like robbery, rape, or assault despite their innocence. Your North Miami negligent security lawyer will explore all available evidence to prove liability rests with the truly responsible party or parties.
For instance, even if there was no working security camera on the premises of your incident, we can attempt to access the footage from other companies’ security systems or the city street traffic cameras. Perhaps there were witnesses who saw everything that happened and can corroborate your testimony. We will seek out all evidence to prove that the owner of the property:
- Had a duty to keep you safe
- Breached this duty
- This breach of duty led to your victimization
- Your robbery or assault caused you damage (emotional, physical, financial, and otherwise)
If negligent security resulted in stolen or damaged possessions and your violation of personal safety, our office may be able to help you build a case.

If the Assailant Got Away or If the Assault Occurred Long Ago
If you worry that because the individual who robbed or harmed you ran from the scene, we will not have the ability to hold him accountable—do not worry. We are prepared to utilize all our resources and options to pursue the liable parties. We can use some of the options we mentioned earlier (accessing other security systems) and also work in close connection with law enforcement.
If you think that the robbery or assault occurred too long ago to be relevant, think again.
