The Murray Law Firm represents victims and families throughout the country who have suffered an injury or death from a property owner or property manager’s failure to provide a safe premises to individuals legally on their property. Premises liability cases include crimes such as: apartment and hotel rape or sexual assault cases; apartment complex shootings and attacks; and shopping mall or parking lot robberies and assaults.

If you or a loved one has been hurt while on someone else’s property, the property owner or management company may have to compensate you for any injuries or wrongful deaths sustained as a consequence of their failure to provide a safe premises.

Property owners and management companies are required by law to provide a safe premises for all individuals legally on their property and to exercise ordinary care to prevent foreseeable third-party criminal attacks, such as rapes, shootings, assaults, or robberies. For example, should a proprietor have reason to anticipate a criminal act based on knowledge of a security lapse or of previous crime on or near property, he or she then has a duty to exercise ordinary care to deter such crime and protect those legally on their premises from harm.

Should a property owner or management company fail in this legal responsibility, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries or wrongful deaths, which occur as a consequence. Under such a claim, the victims may be entitled to an award of damages that could include, among other items, substantial monetary compensation for: pain and suffering; past and future medical expenses; loss of wages and future earning capacity; and, emotional distress.
