THIRD PARTY ASSAULT & DANGEROUS PREMISES CASES

THIRD PARTY ASSAULT & DANGEROUS PREMISES CASES

Victims of violent crime are frequently harmed at hotels, malls, apartment complexes, or schools.

The use of reasonable security measures could prevent or deter many of these crimes.

The owner or management company of a commercial business property should know:

  • if a substantial number of prior violent crimes have occurred on its premises
  • if an individual acts in such a way as to indicate danger in time to prevent harm or injury
  • if an employee has a history of violence or criminal record

Under the law, companies and management are responsible for providing reasonable security measures to protect their guests, customers, employees, residents, or students from an attack by a stranger. The attack can result in assault, shooting, stabbing, sexual assault, molestation, or rape.

Our experienced attorneys have successfully handled these types of cases throughout Missouri and across the United States.

DANGEROUS CONDITION OF PREMISES

Our firm regularly represents clients who were injured by the dangerous condition of property or by the actions of a third party in failing to maintain, repair, inspect, or supervise the property.

An owner or possessor of property has a responsibility to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition pursuant to existing building codes and other reasonable standards.

Under many circumstances, an owner of or possessor of property also has a responsibility to adequately supervise the property, its employees or its visitors.
