Negligent Security

While you may feel that a property owner is protecting you from danger (negligent security, inadequate security), it is often the case that property owners put profits over safety, and when that happens dangerous predators seize the opporunity to attack.

Battery – Violent Crimes

Touching Or Striking Another Person

If you have been injured due to the intentional and unlawful touching (a battery) by another individual, you can sue the offender in order to obtain compensation for injuries and other damages resulting from the incident. Most victims assume that these are only criminal acts; however, injured victims can pursue civil claims in court.

A battery involves actually and intentionally touching or striking another person against his or her will. Battery cases can include, domestic battery, felony battery, and aggravated battery (causes great bodily harm, permanent disability, or permanent disfigurement; or uses a deadly weapon).

Batteries are often the result of arguments or fights that got out of control (domestic disputes, sexual assaults, school fights, neighbor disputes, sports fans disputes, and bar fights, and gang clashes).

Offenders often use their hands, bats, knifes, guns or even vehicles to hurt or kill their victims. Injuries sustained can include bruises, broken bones, stab or bullet wounds and even death. Battery crimes also include sexual assaults.

It is not uncommon for assaults to escalate into a battery case. Battery incidents can occur in nightclubs, and gas stations, convenience stores, parking lots, Florida roadways (road rage), sport and arena venues, apartment complexes and college campus were property owners lack the appropriate safety and security measures. In some cases, the owner or and employer negligently hires aggressive employees or negligently retains aggressive employees, even after learning of the employees violent and dangerous behaviors. Other employers fail to perform adequate background checks including any past criminal behaviors by not completing a criminal background check; which puts customers, employees, residents, students, and guest on their property at great risk for serious personal injuries or death.
