Few events in life could be more traumatic and potentially devastating than an assault. The physical, mental and emotional results can have severe and long lasting effects on the lives of the victim and his or her family.
When a physical or sexual assault occurs, the perpetrator may be subject to both criminal and civil penalties. In addition, property and business owners have a duty to keep individuals at their premises safe from harm, and this includes assaults. Although often avoidable, assaults often occur because property or business owners fail to provide adequate security or take safety measures to protect or warn of dangers that might be lurking in the environment. When this happens, they can be held responsible.
Physical and sexual assaults often occur in:
- Parking garages and ramps
- Lobbies, hallways and stairways
- Apartment buildings
- Subways and train stations
- Laundry rooms
- Building elevators
- Shopping malls
- Office buildings
- Restaurants and bars
Assaults which could have been prevented often occur due to factors such as inadequate lighting, lack of surveillance, broken or missing security cameras, negligent security guards, broken or missing locks on doors and windows and broken or missing fences.
