Assaults & Attacks
Taking Legal Action Through a Premises Liability Claim
If you have been the victim of a violent attack or a sexual assault, then
you cannot count on law enforcement to help you secure justice for the
wrongs you have suffered. Even if the individual who attacked you is arrested,
convicted, and sent to jail or prison, there is no guarantee that you
will receive the compensation you deserve - or anything at all - without
taking your own legal action. The criminal process does not always result
in restitution to the victim, and any amount that is paid in restitution
may be far less than is fair for the victim's medical expenses, lost
wages, and the pain, suffering, and mental anguish caused by an assault.
For hard-hitting legal representation and dedicated support during this
difficult time, turn to the attorneys of Meyerkord & Meyerkord.

Who is responsible for an attack?
Under certain circumstances, it may be possible to recover financial compensation
for an attack by taking legal action against the owner of the property
where the incident occurred. If the property owner failed to take reasonable
safety precautions to protect guests, patrons, or tenants, then the victim
may be entitled to claim damages. For example, if a rape or other attack
occurs in a hotel room or apartment, then the
hotel owner or landlord may be held liable.
Security negligence, such as failure to install fencing, gates, alarms, and surveillance cameras,
is the basis of this type of case. Bring the case to us now for a free
consultation to learn whether you have grounds for legal action and to
take the first steps in your case.
