South Florida Personal Injury Attorneys: What Do Negligent Security Cases Involve?

There are two big questions victims tend to ask when they come to us with a potential negligent security case: where can negligent security take place, and what kinds of acts qualify?

It is quite possible for someone to suffer an injury in such a situation where the bank did everything in their power to keep their premises safe. If you attempted to file a claim in such a situation, you would most likely lose.
