Sexual Assault Victims
Were You the Victim of a Sex Crime?
Being the victim of a violent crime such as sexual assault can be one of
the most devastating and emotionally trying times that you will ever encounter.
Who is responsible for when something of this occurs? While many people
will limit their focus to the criminal themselves, it is important to
realize that they are not the only one who could be held liable. In fact,
there are many situations in which the owner of the property where the
attack took place could be held responsible. If the assault was partially
caused by negligent security, a poor design or inadequate lighting, the
owner could be held liable.
If the property owner had taken more care and caution in ensuring that
visitors on their property were safe, the victim might not have suffered
at all. There are certain measures that property owners are expected to
take to protect tenants and visitors on their property. If they cut corners
and do not bother, they are leaving visitors vulnerable. Some of the expected
security measures include the following:
- Surveillance cameras placed throughout the property;
- Active and trained security guards patrolling;
- Adequate locks, lighting and gates; and
- A property design that does not leave victims isolated
