The owner of a property (premises) who has reason to expect crime on its property has a legal obligation to deter and prevent criminals from committing crimes against others on the property. When property owners fail in this duty, whether as a result of inadequate security, negligent employee training or supervision, or failure to do a background check on an employee, crimes like murder, aggravated assault, armed robbery, and rape are more likely to occur to innocent individuals, often resulting in death or in life-long suffering to victims and their families.
Under the law, the property owner may be responsible for paying damages resulting from criminal assaults committed on its property (Premises Liability). We have extensive experience helping people who are attacked on properties such as apartment complexes and hotels.
