Cary Crime Victim Rights Attorney
Victims of violent crime expect and deserve that justice be served, and that the perpetrator of the crime face the consequences for his or her action. Many crime victims are unaware that further recourse for justice and fairness are often available.
If you are the victim of a violent crime, additional parties can often be held legally accountable for your injuries and harm. In North Carolina, private property owners, including the owners of apartment buildings, hotels, retail and fast-food stores, malls, nursing homes and medical care facilities, are required to ensure a safe environment on their property.
