Our personal injury attorneys can help you recover compensation
Victims of an assault can suffer physically, emotionally and financially. They can be left with serious injuries that require extensive medical treatment. The attack may leave them afraid of being attacked again and they may stop engaging in normal activities. Medical expenses can add up quickly.
Property owners often don’t accept responsibility when there’s been an attack. Instead, they’ll put all of the blame on the attacker. Insurance companies aren’t on your side. They are only interested in paying you as little as possible. They may question the extent of your injuries or deny liability completely.
That’s why you need an experienced premises liability attorney to fight for you. We know the challenges and obstacles you can face when dealing with a negligent security case. We know how to build strong cases that insurance companies have to take seriously.
We start by investigating your attack. Our legal team carefully reviews police reports, video and other evidence. We examine medical records. We identify witnesses and interview them about what they saw. If needed, we consult experts who can help us understand how the attack happened and how it could have been prevented.
