Negligent Security: Victims who are injured in nightclub by bar security or patrons

Under Florida law, owners of property and businesses have a duty to keep that property or business in a reasonably safe condition. This duty may include hiring competent security personnel to monitor or patrol the premises of the business to ensure your safety. If you have been injured by security personnel on someone else’s property, the owner of the property may be liable for their actions under a claim for negligent security, negligent hiring, or even negligent retention of employees. The most common places that people are injured as a result of negligent security include:
  • Bars and nightclubs
  • Restaurants
  • Hotels
  • Condominium Associations
  • Other commercial properties open to the public
Contrary to what most people think, “bouncers” and other security personnel do not have the right to physically harm you. Not only may they be liable for their intentional acts, but the property or business owner may also be liable for negligent security. A lot of businesses hire off duty police and other security personnel to monitor their businesses or properties to make sure their patrons or residents are safe. Others choose not to. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Yuri Tsyganov, PL will evaluate the facts of your case and possibly seek damages from not only the security employee who attacked you but also the owner of the business or entity responsible for hiring, training, and retaining such people.
