In Florida, business owners have a duty to provide their customers with safe premises. Simply put, this duty means that they must ensure the safety of a customer or guest from attack, while on their premises. For example, an apartment building, mall, or nightclub may be legally responsible if it fails to protect guests by failing to install sufficient lighting, not fixing broken doors or gates, or failing to provide adequate security that results in someone being attacked or killed. This duty extends even to parking lots. If you are a loved one is injured as result of a business failing to provide adequate security, call our office immediately at 407-843-9088 (Orlando) or 352-562-7999 (Gainesville/Ocala).
