Florida Negligent Security Lawyers
When you’re injured because someone failed to secure their property safely, you may have a negligent security case. We can help.
Are you a Tampa Bay resident who was injured due to someone else’s criminal act, like robbery, rape, assault or battery? For a victim, these are extremely traumatic events. You won’t have to suffer forever. You can seek the compensation you deserve to heal, pay your bills and move forward with the help of Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group.
A negligent security claim involves holding the negligent people accountable after you suffer from a criminal act. Residential and commercial landowners in Florida have an obligation under the law to provide a safe space for the people within it.
For example, if you are a renter who is attacked by another resident of your apartment complex, you may be able to sue a landlord who provided inadequate security and who failed to take proper security measures. If you are injured during a robbery in a private parking lot, you may be able to sue because the owner failed to provide a safe parking area.
On top of that, you’re dealing with emergency hospitalization, ongoing medical expenses and emotional trauma from the incident. It can have a widespread impact on your life. That’s why you need the help of a slip and fall lawyer.
Here in Tampa Bay, Kemp & Ruge & Green is the legal partner you can trust in the aftermath of a criminal act. We will help you understand your legal options and how to use the law to protect your future. Most of all, we will handle your case with genuine care and respect.

Our clients agree:
“The service I received from this law group was beyond exceptional. They put all my worries at ease and there was never a time I couldn’t call about a question or concern and they wouldn’t follow up immediately. Attorney Rob Green personally came to my home during the initial consult and took his time explaining the legal terminology in a way I could easily understand which allowed me to feel comfortable that I was making the right decision with allowing them to take my case. You can tell they really care about their clients and want the best outcome for you by being professional and honest.”
“Upon first meeting Robert Green I immediately felt, just based upon his enthusiasm and confidence and even taking time to meet me at my job site, that I was in good hands. Furthermore, upon meeting his assistant/paralegal Tiffany Iones, I was further rest-assured the same. She was very consistent in keeping in touch with me and updating me on the progress of my case. I wasn’t very sure where the case was heading but I was always confident that they would do their best for me. Long term it turned out well. It could always be better but I am very satisfied with the results that I have received. They were fair and thorough and relatively quick on getting it all finished, and now thanks to Robert Green and Tiffany I can make the positive change that I have been wanting. I highly recommend them!”

Negligent security cases are some of the most commonly misunderstood cases in Florida and across the nation. It’s common for victims and the community at large to wonder, Why not sue the criminal themselves?
While the criminal is certainly responsible and should be held accountable by the law, the owner of a property often contributes to the circumstances that allowed the criminal act to happen in the first place. Everyone who is negligent during the incident should be held to account, not just the criminal alone.
A negligent security case often involves failures to address security issues. This may include things like failure to post safety signs, keeping large amounts of cash on the premises, providing poor lighting, having no security staff present and not having security gates, cameras or locks. There may even be procedural failures, like not changing locks after tenants move out or not restricting access to keys.
As the plaintiff, you’ll need to prove:
- You had a legal right to be present where the incident occurred
- The property owner/possessor owed you a “duty of care”
- A criminal act led to your injury as a result of the property owner/possessor’s failure to exercise reasonable care, or their failure to provide adequate warning.
Examples of negligent security victims include:
- Rental tenants who have been harmed due to the landlord’s negligence
- People who are attacked while visiting someone else’s home-based business
- Patrons who are attacked at retail stores
- Store shoppers who are harmed during robberies
- People who are carjacked in parking lots
- University students who are attacked by other students
