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.
