Workplace Negligent Security in Hollywood: A Serious Concern

When most employees think of a safe workplace, they’re thinking of personal protective equipment or processes that prevent accidents involving heavy machinery. But not all hazards are internal. Adequate security in the workplace is essential to prevent people from entering a place of work and injuring or harming employees.


If your employer failed to keep you safe at work and you suffered an injury or from violence as a result, you may have a claim. Pursuing your claim and any compensation you may be entitled to can in fact be important in helping you recover physically and emotionally from your injury. To find out more, contact Flaxman Law Group for a consultation with a workplace injury claims lawyer.

What Is Workplace Negligent Security?

Some South Florida communities, including Hollywood, Miami Beach, and Miami, have higher crime rates when compared to the national average. This means that employers need to be aware of these risks and act on them. Employers may need to:

  • Ensure proper lighting in the workplace and parking lots.
  • Secure doors and windows.
  • Stay aware of criminal activity in the area and warn employees if it occurs.
  • Hire security.
  • Install security systems.
  • Have an internal security process in case an employee becomes violence.
  • Have a process in place so everyone knows what to do in case of a break-in.
  • Have notices clearly posted, indicating that valuables and cash are not kept on site.

When employers fail to take these and other steps, workers can be harmed if someone breaks into the premises. Employees can be mugged, assaulted, sexually assaulted, or otherwise harmed. A lack of adequate security can also mean that if a fellow employee becomes violent there is no way for workers to stay safe.

Should I Contact a Workplace Injury Attorney?

Cases involving workplace negligent security in Hollywood and South Florida tend to get complicated, which is why you may wish to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Depending on the situation, if you’re injured you may have a workers’ compensation claim or a third-party claim. You may be eligible for compensation to cover medical care, lost income, and more, but your employer will likely vigorously defend themselves. An experienced attorney can fight for financial recovery so you don’t have to deal with the trauma of violence at the same time as you deal with the high bills that can result.

In this situation, you’ve been through enough. You need not only an experienced attorney but a compassionate one who will treat you with kindness.

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. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
