VICTIMS OF VIOLENT CRIMES
Have you or someone you care about been injured as a result of a violent crime? Did someone's failure to provide adequate security or appropriate background checks place you or a loved one in a dangerous situation which allowed the injury? Or did the worst happen? Was there an assault, rape, child abuse, elder abuse, or even death?
Violent crimes can occur anywhere and anyone can be a victim, but women, children and the elderly are the most vulnerable. These crimes can occur at recreation centers, resorts, hotels, malls, schools, churches, or even nursing homes and care centers. Instead of providing a safe environment, these businesses fail to provide security or the necessary and appropriate background checks. Predators are given access to unsuspecting and vulnerable people.
There may have been a number of people responsible for your injury. While victims expect the courts to hold offenders responsible, many do not realize that the civil court system provides the victim with an additional resource. The victim may file a claim against the business for negligent security or the party's failure to prevent a foreseeable crime.
If you have suffered a violent crime or someone you care about has been harmed or killed, you need to speak to an attorney about a civil action. It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible because witnesses may disappear and physical evidence may be purposefully or inadvertently destroyed. The attorneys at Goodsell Quinn take these cases very seriously, and represent their clients vigorously.
