Civil Liability for Criminal Attack Injuries

Every year thousands of individuals are seriously injured or murdered due to criminal attacks and assaults while on someone else's property.  Many of these attacks and assaults could have been entirely prevented if property owners would only dedicate the resources to provide reasonable security and safety measures in order to avoid foreseeable dangers. 

Negligent security includes failure of property owners to properly monitor their premises, including the parking lot, elevators, stairwells, hallways, bathrooms, common areas, parking garages and the inside of their properties.  Malfunctioning locks and latches, broken windows, doors and gates that don't close, alarm systems that don't work, poorly lit areas, and the hiring of inadequate or incompetent security can also lead to an increase of criminal attacks and assaults.

Besides the person responsible for the actual attack or assault, those that can be held liable for criminal attacks and assaults may include landlords, employers, business owners, universities, government entities and other property owners. 

Property owners are required to provide a safe place for their customers, guests, employees, students or tenants.   There is a direct link between negligent security and unsafe conditions which can lead to vicious criminal attacks such as physical assaults, robberies, kidnappings, sexual assaults, rape, molestation, workplace violence and other violent acts.

Common properties where criminal attacks or assaults occur can include:

  • Amusement Parks
  • Apartment Complexes
  • Bars and Nightclubs
  • Condominiums
  • Hotels and Motels
  • Malls
  • Parking Lots
  • Professional Office Buildings
  • Rental Properties
  • Restaurants
  • Shopping Centers
  • Universities and College Campuses
  • Vacation Properties
  • Workplace
