Close to the last three decades, the negligent security attorneys at Sokoloff and Weinstein, P.A. have represented people who have been carjacked, burgled, assaulted, or even raped due to zero or inadequate security on a premises or surrounding property (for example, a parking lot, lobby, or other public area under the control of the property owner)

Falling under Florida premises liability law, pivotal in a negligent security lawsuit is foreseeability. In other words, the defendant could reasonably anticipate criminal activity like what you went through.
It is clear, then, that what is regarded as essential security for one business is not necessarily the same as for another, for example, a nightclub compared to a small store. This adds to the complexity of negligent security settlements.
