It is the responsibility of the owner of an establishment to provide adequate security to its guests and any person who lawfully enters. If you have been the victim of a violent crime while on the premises of a hotel, nightclub, school, apartment building, shopping center or other public or private facility then you may have cause to file a negligent security claim. While a criminal charge is brought forth upon the malicious person who harmed you, you can file a civil lawsuit against the suspect, as well as,the owner of the establishment for allowing the crime to take place.
These cases involve:
Assault and battery related injuries
Sexual assault and rape

Boston has some dangerous neighborhoods and many good colleges located within these parts of town. We entrust these institutions to look after our children’s safety. Failing to provide adequate security on and around the campus can lead to egregious tragedies. The suspects are not the only ones responsible in the eyes of the law.
The owner and managers of the property where you were victimized did not deliberately do you harm, however, their negligence in failing to provide the safety required is an act of negligence. If the location is considered a dangerous neighborhood they should take the appropriate measures to ensure the safety of those who enter the establishment. This might require them to have installed a better security system, adequate lighting, security guards, and security cameras. Cutting corners when it comes to improving these areas is not worth the danger it can bring to an unsuspecting victim. Sometimes the crime was perpetrated by an employee of the establishment in which case, the denial to properly research the staff is in question.
The attorneys of Combies Hanson are here to help you in this time of need. When you bring your claim to us we will help you file the paperwork for the claim, as well as, investigate the matter. Many times we will find that a crime at this location was not an isolated incident and could have been prevented with a few improvements. Making the negligent parties to take responsibility means getting you the compensation you need to cover the cost of your medical bills, payment for the time you lost from work, and a sum for your pain and emotional trauma. We work for your best interests and want to see you recover from this tragedy, ready to live again. We know money can not reverse the pain that you have been suffered with but it can lighten the burden and allow you to focus on your recovery. The criminal courts will punish the guilty suspect but you need financial compensation to gather the pieces of your life and move forward.
