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.

What Our Happy Clients say

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 & Sanders 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 & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders.

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 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.
