Protecting The Rights Of Assault Victims

If you have been the victim of an assault, the person who committed the attack may be responsible both civilly and criminally. However, when an attack happens on commercial property, liability may be shared if the business or property owner, or other responsible party, failed to provide adequate security.

Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaulo & DeNigris, L.L.P., is here for you if someone has assaulted you on commercial or private property. Our lawyers are experienced in helping assault victims in Southington, Connecticut, and throughout the greater Hartford area seek compensation for their injuries.

Where Can Attacks Take Place?

There are many commercial locations where you can be at risk for experiencing a personal assault. These include:

  • Banks or ATMs
  • Hotels and motels
  • College campuses
  • Stadiums or arenas
  • Parking lots or structures
  • Malls or individual stores

Additionally, you could also find yourself the victim of an assault while visiting someone's home as an invited guest. Attacks may include robbery, battery or sexual assault, and can happen in daylight hours as well as at night.

Examples Of Insufficient Security

Persons and businesses responsible for commercial buildings are obligated to keep areas safe for patrons and others. Some examples of insufficient security at a commercial location include:

  • Poor or nonexistent lighting
  • Lack of or subpar security cameras
  • Inadequate physical security presence
  • Nonfunctioning locks on doors or windows

The lack of proper security measures increases the opportunity of others to cause harm to you. Our personal injury attorneys are committed to helping you seek justice. This includes identifying all responsible parties and pursuing appropriate compensation against them.
