WHO IS RESPONSIBLE?
Following a crime, it’s easy to assume that the one responsible party is the perpetrator who physically committed the offense. While this is sometimes true, it is often the case that there was a larger failing from an institution that allowed the crime to occur. When this is the case, it is likely that these institutions can be held accountable with a civil lawsuit.
Defendants in these suits can include:
- School districts/educational institutions
- Religious institutions
- Government/public agencies
- Event venues

Our industry recognized team of legal advocates is ready to bring aggressive, decisive action against these negligent parties and pursue every legal avenue towards securing you the compensation you deserve.
