As a personal injury attorney, I understand the profound impact that sexual assault can have on survivors. It is an egregious violation of one's safety and dignity, often leaving lasting physical, emotional and psychological scars.  In Many cases, these assaults in places where we should feel safe:  our homes, workplaces, schools, or even public places like parking lots and malls.

One significant aspect of sexual assault is when it happens due to inadequate security measures.  Property owners, whether they are responsible for a commercial establishment, rental property or public premises, have a duty to provide reasonable security measures to protect visitors and occupants from foreseeable harm, including sexual assaults.


Inadequate security can take various forms, but some common examples include:

  1. Poor lighting in parking lots, stairwells, creating hiding spots for assailants.
  2. Broken locks or malfunctioning security systems that allow unauthorized access to buildings or rooms.
  3. Lack of security personnel or surveillance cameras in high-risk areas.
  4. Failure to screen employees or tenants with a history of violence or sexual misconduct. 
  5. Ignoring previous incidents of assault or criminal activity on the premises and failing to take preventative measures.

Property owners have a legal obligation to assess potential risks and take reasonable steps to minimize them. When they fail to do so, they can be held liable for the harm caused by their negligence.


If you or a loved one has been a victim of sexual assault due to inadequate security, it is crucial to seek legal guidance as soon as possible.  As an experienced personal injury attorney, I am here to help you navigate the legal process and fight for the justice  and money you deserve.


  1. Case Evaluation: I will review the circumstances of the assault and assess whether inadequate security played a role. I will investigate the property owner's responsibilities and any previous incidents that may indicate a pattern of negligence.
  2. Building your Case: We will gather evidence, including witness statements, surveillance footage, police reports, and expert testimony, to support your claim. I will also work with medical professionals to document the physical and emotional impact of your assault on your life.
  3. Negotiating with Insurance Companies: I will handle communications with the property owner's insurance company on your behalf, advocating for a fair settlement that covers your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
  4. Litigation, if Necessary: If the insurance company refuses to offer a reasonable settlement, I am prepared to take your case to court.  I will be prepared to go to court and get you the just compensation you deserve.   

If you have been the victim of a sexual assault due to inadequate security, do not suffer in silence.  Contact me today for a free confidential consultation. I am here to listen, support you, and fight for your rights every step of the way!!!!
