Experience When Negligent Actions Compromise Your Safety

While you may assume your safety is a priority while on the property of a business, this is unfortunately not always the case. If preventative measures on a commercial property could have stopped a crime, injury or both, you may have a case for alleging negligent security.

At Gerber Law, we understand the frustrations of suffering an injury due to the negligence of others. When that negligence extends to a business due to failure to maintain security measures, we will pursue damages for you.

Founding attorney Maria Gerber is a former Florida prosecutor. If negligent security led to a crime, we can offer unique guidance with experience in both criminal law and personal injury. We represent clients across Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties. Schedule a free initial consultation at our offices by calling 866-233-4529.

What Is Negligent Security?

Negligent security cases are typically the result of a business failing to use basic security measures to keep patrons safe on their properties. Poorly maintained security measures can expose patrons to potential crimes, including robbery, rape, assault and more. They can also lead to serious injuries, caused by the crime committed, by a slip and fall or by something else.

Negligent security examples can include:

  • Improper walls or fencing
  • Poor or inadequate lighting
  • Defective or unmonitored security cameras
  • Overgrown or poorly maintained shrubbery or landscaping
  • Lack of security personnel or measures

If you are unsure whether security measures could have prevented your injury, Ms. Gerber can investigate which measures could have reasonably done so.

Why Work With Gerber Law?

Whether you were the victim of a crime, suffered a serious injury or both, you may feel as though there is no course of action for you to take. We will pursue damages against the business to compensate you for your medical expenses, potentially lost wages and pain and suffering you have endured.
