Facebook When Can Security Be Held Liable for Injuries that Occur at an Event? Skip to main content

At Morgan Law Group, our Florida personal injury lawyers know that venue owners and event producers must take dozens of unique steps to ensure successful and safe event proceeds from start to finish without anyone getting hurt.

Sporting events, street festivals, and concerts require multiple parties to work together to maintain the safety of the attendees including crowd control and security.

Unfortunately, even the best-planned event can result in injuries or even the death of attendees, which leaves those who suffered damages grappling with their recovery and determining who is liable for the incident that led to their losses.

This is typically where things become complicated. Event planners, hosts, producers, and venue owners can all play a role in injuries or deaths arising from security personnel and their actions or inaction.

Our skilled Florida personal injury lawyers can help you pursue the proper person, party, entity, or combination of each for your full financial recovery.

Here is how.

How Can I Prove Event Security Liability in Florida?

No matter what type of event you are attending, including those at smaller or outdoor venues that hire a third-party security team, or a large event where the venue has its own security services, the security personnel must consistently assess their priorities, including their duties to protect the safety and well-being of the attendees while proactively taking measures to avoid or disrupt any injurious or deadly issues.

When they fail to do so, security guards and bouncers may be liable for injuries that occurred to the attendees during their duties. They may also include event attendees being injured due to excessive use of force by the security staff.

Many factors go into a potential liability claim, which could include venue owners and event producers being held liable for the actions or inaction of security personnel, particularly in injurious or deadly circumstances caused by insufficient or negligent security.

If you or someone you love was injured by security personnel or because of the lack of or negligent security at a Florida event, we can help you determine who is liable for your full financial recovery, which will often include more than one party.
