Seeking Compensation In A Civil Suit After A Crime
How Do I Take Action?
If an unsafe premises resulted in an injury, including robbery or physical or sexual assault, you may be able to file a personal injury suit against them. The outcome of any criminal case against the perpetrator is separate from this civil lawsuit. You may seek compensation for losses such as medical bills, lost income and benefits, and pain and suffering.
People often suffer injuries or are the victims of crime on properties that lack sufficient security measures. Negligent security issues include broken windows, broken locks, broken security systems, no security system or guards, poor lighting and poor building design. These types of issues may foster an atmosphere that is conducive to crime.
We represent people in negligent security cases on all types of properties, including:
- Motels and hotels
- Apartments and condos
- Gas stations
- Shopping malls
- Parking lots and parking garages
- College dorms and campuses
- Grocery and discount stores
If the property owner knew or should have known about the security problem and did not repair it, they may be liable for your injuries. Tell us about your case and we will explain your rights and options.
