(813) 254-7119 Sexual Assaults and Rape

Sexual Assaults and Rape Claims Lawyer

There are sexual predators that look for opportunities to find victims to assault. They want a place to pursue their victims where they have easy access and there is less of a chance that they will be caught committing their crime. Dark parking lots, stairwells or apartment buildings and hotels with poor security are examples of ideal hunting grounds for sexual predators. These properties are designed to invite criminal behavior, like sexual assault or rape, which is why the owners of the property may be liable for assault claims.

Poor security can be a catalyst for criminal behavior. Business owners have a responsibility to protect those on their properties from injury. Hotels, motels, college dorms and apartment buildings are good examples of places where a sexual predator may look for opportunities to find a victim. A building with adequate outdoor lighting, cameras and locked entrances is going to be less inviting than a dark building without security cameras. When owners do not proactively enhance security to protect their tenants or customers, they may be found liable for rapes or attacks that occur on their property.

Proving Premises Liability for Sexual Attacks

If a person is raped or sexually assaulted, they may suffer physical and emotional injuries. Even if their attacker is never brought to justice, they may be able to receive compensation to cover medical and therapy expenses, as well as pain and suffering. If the assault occurred on a property with poor security, the property owner may be liable under premises liability laws. If it can be proven that the attack occurred because the property was unsafe or unsecure, the property owner may be liable for damages to the victim.

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.

Michael J.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
