Comparative Fault Laws in Florida
Negligent security accident claims in Florida fall under comparative negligence
laws. This means that an award for compensation will be reduced in accordance
with the percentage of the victim’s liability. For example, if the
victim is shown to have contributed 40% to their injuries, and their damages
total $100,000, they will only be entitled to $60,000 in compensation.
It is crucial to work with a skilled lawyer who can prove you were not
responsible in any way for your injuries, so that you can recover the
maximum amount of compensation.
Proving a Negligent Security Claim
In a negligent security claim, the plaintiff must prove three elements
in order to win the case:
- The property owner had a duty of care to ensure basic security measures
were in place
- The victim’s injuries were both foreseeable and directly caused by
the inadequate security
- The victim suffered damages – whether physical, emotional, or financial in nature
Negligent Security Statute of Limitations
In Florida, an individual must file a negligent security claim within four
years of the date of the injury. If the victim died due to inadequate
security on another’s property, the decedent’s family can
file a wrongful death claim within two years of the date of death. If
the deadline is not met, the claim will not be accepted.
