Innocent people become victims of crimes every day in Los Angeles. Many of these victims, or their families, believe that there is nothing that can be done after the perpetrator’s criminal case has concluded and may feel that they have not been given the restitution they deserve. Fortunately, crime victims can pursue civil cases against the perpetrator in an effort to recover compensation for the damages they have suffered. If you or a family member has been victimized by a criminal act, a Los Angeles attorney can provide you with assistance in taking swift legal action.
If a property owner or manager fails to take the necessary steps to protect visitors from criminal activity on the property, the owner or manager can be held financially liable for any damages that a person may sustain as a victim of a crime. This includes crimes that occur on properties such as gas stations, fast food restaurants, convenience stores, apartment buildings, bars, hotels, dorm rooms and parking garages.
