Who may qualify to file an assault or rape lawsuit?

Any person, or the family member of a person, who was harmed in a rape or assault on private property may qualify to file a lawsuit. Property owners have a responsibility to keep visitors to their property safe through reasonable security measures, and no one deserves to be harmed, attacked or injured while at a restaurant, apartment complex, hotel, or similar place. Rape & assault lawsuits related to premises claims may be filed against property owners for negligence, in addition to criminal lawsuits.

I’m already involved in a lawsuit against the perpetrator of the assault. Can I still file a rape or assault lawsuit against the property owner?

Assault & rape lawsuits for premises liability can be filed in conjunction with criminal lawsuits. Even though a third party clearly perpetrated the violence, a property owner may be found negligent for failing to prevent the crime or respond to the incident. Filing an assault or rape lawsuit against a property owner may be the only way to get the business or individual to take steps to improve security on their property, perhaps by installing better lighting or improving the training of their security staff.

We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?

If a member of your family was harmed in a violent crime, long-term, or even life-long, medical care may be required. The physical and emotional impacts of rape and assault are impossible to know at the time of a trial or settlement, and the cost of care is constantly rising. No amount of money can undo the wrong that has been done to you and your family. It is our fervent hope that every assault and rape lawsuit we file can serve to make a property owner take note of the loss and pain its negligence has caused. When that fails to make a company take action to increase security and ensure safety on their property, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company take steps to improve safety.
