Who Can Be Held Liable for a Criminal Attack
The Criminal Can Be Held Liable
Of course, this means that you can hold the criminal liable for your injuries. That being said, in the majority of criminal attack cases, the perpetrators will be ‘judgment proof’. This means that while you can successfully bring a case against this person, they are unlikely to have the resources to pay you the full compensation to which you are entitled.
Security Companies, Businesses and Employers Can Be Held Liable
When you hire our team, we will thoroughly investigate your cases to find all parties that can be held legally liable for part or all of your damages. In many criminal attack cases, there are parties, other than the criminal, whose negligence helped create the conditions that allowed the incident to occur. You can bring a negligent security or premises liability claim against these companies. Some common examples include:
- Security companies that failed to live up to their responsibility to provide adequate protection;
- Commercial companies that failed to ensure their premises was safe and secure for invited guests;
- Employers that negligently hired a dangerous person onto their staff; and
- Government entities that were negligent and allowed an attack to occur.
Compensation Available to Crime Victims
In both Oregon and Washington, crime victims are entitled to recover compensation equal to the value of their damages. In these cases, defendants are typically represented by insurance companies. You need to work with a qualified attorney who can help you build a strong case so that they can recover every penny that you deserve. Our firm can help you seek financial compensation for:
- Lost or stolen property;
- Emergency medical expenses;
- Other medical bills;
- Lost current and future wages;
- Required psychological therapy or counseling;
- Pain and suffering;
- Mental distress;
- Disfigurement; and
- Loss of lifestyle enjoyment.
