Receive the Justice You Deserve with the Help of an Experienced Violent Crime Attorney

Damages caused by a violent crime is the responsibility of the criminal. His assets subject to execution may be lost to the injured party. However, most people have no such assets. Also, most insurance policies do not cover these damages if the insured under the policy was committing a crime. If an insured was negligent in allowing the crime to occur, the negligent person may be held responsible for the damages.

When the criminal is not an employee, the premises owner can still be liable for injuries caused by the criminal if the owner of the premises failed to provide reasonable security for the premises considering the criminal history of the premises.  For example, if a bar fails to provide adequate security guards in a high crime area, he may be responsible if a customer is attacked in the parking lot.
