Sexual Assault Lawsuit Attorney in North Carolina
Victims of sexual assault can restore some of their trust and dignity by taking action against not only their attacker, but also those that fail to provide a safe environment. In many situations, a violent episode could have been avoided with proper security measures or other precautionary measures such as better employee screening or supervision.
Currently, under North Carolina law, private property owners, including the owners of apartment buildings, hotels, retail and fast-food stores, malls, nursing homes and medical care facilities, and other businesses are required to ensure a safe environment on their property.
When violent crimes, such as a sexual assault, occur on private property, the owner of the property may be liable for damages if he or she failed to take the proper steps to ensure your safety.
At The Richards Law Firm, we are experienced in fighting for the rights of sexual assault victims. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you pursue civil litigation for compensation related to your sexual assault case.
