Other organizations may have your credit card or financial information, Social Security number, or even driver’s license number and other data stored digitally. If companies fail to keep your information safe, they can be held liable and you may have a legal claim against them in Homestead or your community.

When young people rent, their landlord is responsible for maintaining common spaces and in providing a reasonably safe space.

In some cases, it can be clear that a property owner was at fault in an injury case. If a property owner failed to put up signs abut renovations, for example, or failed to properly maintain their Hollywood or Florida property, plaintiffs can seek damages for injuries caused by that negligence. But what happens if your injury was caused by a third person or criminal? Do you have an inadequate security claim? How much security does a property owner have to have to show they aren’t negligent?

First, it’s important to understand what a negligent security claim is. This sort of legal action usually happens after someone is the victim of a crime, such as battery, assault, rape, mugging, or another violent crime that leads to injuries. In these cases, the injured party can pursue legal action against the perpetrator and can help police in criminal charges against the perpetrator. Plaintiffs may also have a claim against the property owner.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately.
