Orlando Premises Liability Attorneys Representing You in Negligent Security Cases
We’ll hold owners responsible when they fail to protect you
Hotels, public places and other businesses have certain responsibilities when it comes to keeping you safe. The attorneys at Billings, Morgan & Boatwright, LLC in Winter Park know that if the owners of these places don’t take those responsibilities seriously, you or a family member could be attacked, robbed or even murdered on their premises.
If you have been injured in a public place and you think better security could have prevented the incident, call our attorneys. We can look at your case and determine if you are eligible for compensation to help you pay for medical costs and emotional distress.
Most attacks are preventable
Premises liability laws establish guidelines that tell property owners what they must do to protect others on their property. In some cases a landowner is not required to protect people on his or her property, but in other cases — such as in a hotel liability case — the owners are responsible and should be held accountable.
The negligent security claims our Winter Park attorneys file are brought when a property owner doesn’t meet those standards and someone was victimized as a result. Common cases involve people who are intentionally injured or who are the victims of criminal acts in such places as:
For example, Billings, Morgan & Boatwright, LLC attorney Mary Ann Morgan won a multi-million-dollar settlement for the grieving parents of a 24-year-old woman who was attacked and murdered in her apartment by a maintenance worker. The managers of the complex had given the maintenance worker a master key to all of the units in the building — despite the fact that master keys are no longer used by most apartment complexes because of the security risk they pose. The complex had been told to install a more secure system by upper management, but had decided not to spend the money to fix the problem. A young woman died as a result.
