Premises Liability / Falls & Crime
Legal Assistance for Crime Victims
If you fall prey to an attack while in an unsafe area, the owner could be deemed liable and maybe required to pay you compensation.
We see it all the time on in the news – people getting assaulted in parking lots, alleyways, or even inside stores. Criminals intent on committing assault and robbery do their homework and know exactly where to go and prey on their victims. Dimly lighted areas, such as parking lots, that lack security and surveillance, are magnet to criminal acts. Sometimes, the attackers are employees of the property owner and are there because the property owner has failed to properly screen its employees.
Keeping patrons safe is an obligation of property owners. But if they are negligent and do not secure their properties adequately, then they are putting their patrons at risk. Such negligence can lead to serious injuries and violent crime. In cases of rape or assault, victims may have to deal not only with physical injuries but psychological as well.
Our legal team is experienced in holding negligent property owners responsible for serious personal injuries suffered by patrons on their properties. We represent those who have been physically assaulted, raped, and battered because of negligent security.
