Apartment/Hotel Rapes or Attacks Lawyer

As a resident of an apartment complex or hotel, you deserve a reasonable amount of protection from violence. Apartment building and hotel owners have an obligation to maintain safe facilities, including providing reasonable security. Rapes and attacks that are perpetrated in hotels and apartment buildings often could have been prevented with safety and security measures by the property owner. In some cases, victims of attacks or rapes may be able to seek damages from property owners if a hotel or apartment building has little or poor security.

Criminals that are sexual predators or seek to inflict harm look for easy access to victims. A hotel or apartment building that does not have adequate lighting, security cameras or restricted entrances may be alluring to these violent criminals. Residents or visitors to these poorly maintained buildings may be at risk of attack due to lack of security. Under premises liability laws, the owners of hotels and apartment buildings without adequate security may be liable for injuries from rape or attacks.

Injuries Caused by Preventable Attacks

Rape or attack victims may suffer from a variety of injuries, physically, emotionally and mentally. Physically, they may endure fractures, stab wounds, gunshot injuries and contusions caused by the attack. In addition, many survivors of rape or attacks may experience anxiety, depression and fear. Some victims may have post-traumatic stress syndrome, or PTSD. These injuries can come at a high cost, both in tangible financial damages and the pain and suffering from the emotional and physical trauma.

If you were a victim of an attack or rape at an unsafe hotel or apartment building in Florida, you may be able to seek damages through a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner.

What Our Happy Clients say

4.7 / 5.0

Based on 21 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
