After all, they get to keep their money and they can wait you out. But once the case is in litigation, then both sides need to play by the court’s deadlines. If the case goes to a jury trial, then it is up to 6 people of the community. Keep one fact in mind – insurance companies manage risk.

Lehigh Acres is the largest and the fastest growing suburb in Southwest Florida. With 100,000 residents, it has outgrown even the city of Fort Myers. Lehigh Acres is east of Fort Myers. It is connected to the city by US 82. The suburb can spread more to the north to the Caloosahatchee River, where the neighboring census-designated places Alva, Olga, Fort Myers Shores, and Buckingham are located.
The growing population in Lehigh Acres brings growing business opportunities. This suburb already abounds with entertainment, shopping, dining, and other locations where people can spend their time. In certain cases, however, they get injured there. When negligent security is the reason for that, it’s important to learn about the premises liability and negligence laws, because they may place legal responsibility for the injuries and damages on the shoulders of the commercial establishment.
Businesses and landowners that invite visitors and guests owe their visitors a duty of care. These can include restaurants, bars, malls, retail stores, amusement parks, gas stations, and apartment complexes. The duty of care is a legal duty imposed by law. In the case of negligent security, it means that the business operator and landowner have a duty to take all reasonable measures to keep you safe from foreseeable harm. Where they are on notice of prior crimes and there were obvious security methods that could have prevented the crime where someone was injured or killed, then the chances increase significantly that those owners and operators may be liable to the injured person for the total amount of their damages.Lehigh Acres Negligent Security Lawyer
