Compensation for Crime Victims
While criminals are prosecuted appropriately if they are caught, victims are often left with little to no support. Where do they turn to get compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering? If you have been hurt as a result of criminal activity, or you have lost a loved one because of a criminal's actions, Jaroslawicz & Jaros may be able to help.
If the crime could have been prevented if a property owner had taken the proper steps to secure the property, our lawyers may be able to assist you in pursuing compensation by filing a type of premises liability claim called a negligent security claim.
Examples of Negligent Security Claims
- In the process of a gas station robbery, a customer is assaulted. The gas station has been robbed many times before, but has failed to install security cameras and take other measures to deter future criminal activity. The owner may be held responsible.
- A guest staying at a hotel is raped. The rapist gained access to the hotel because of broken locks that the hotel knew about but neglected to replace. The owner may be held responsible for the sexual assault.
- A nightclub patron is stabbed. When the crime is taking place, security personnel does nothing. The owner may be held responsible for the stabbing.
- After shopping at a mall, a customer is attacked in the parking lot. The lot has been neglected. Burned out lights have gone unreplaced. Nothing is in place to deter crime, even though assaults have happened before. The owner may be held responsible for the attack.
These are just a few examples. We will carefully review your case to determine if the crime could have been prevented if the property owner had taken proper steps to secure the premises. We have more than 40 years of experience helping victims of assault, sexual assault, stabbings and other crimes.
