Premises Security – Crime Victims

Serving All Areas of Maryland, Washington, DC and Northern Virginia

Property Owner Negligence LawyerPremises liability law holds property owners or managers, or both, responsible for violent crimes they failed to prevent, when it was reasonably likely that the property would see such a crime.

When a tenant or guest is assaulted, robbed, raped or killed on someone else’s property, and negligence by the property’s owner or manager is a factor, the victim may make a premises security claim.

We Have Following Locations To Serve You:

  • Maryland
  • Washington, DC
  • Northern Virginia

They may claim all damages related to the incident, including the cost of any medical bills; any wages they lost; and compensation for a disability, disfigurement, pain and emotional trauma. In the case of a wrongful death, the victim’s family may (depending on the area) be able to collect compensation for all of the related costs as well as compensation for their emotional losses.

A premises liability lawyer can assist in filing a premises security claim involving crimes at any of these locations:

  • Apartment buildings
  • Shopping mall parking lots
  • Nightclubs and bars
  • Hotels and motels
  • Convenience stores
  • Fast-food eateries and other restaurants

To win a premises security claim, plaintiffs must be able to show that the owner or occupant of the property knew (or should have known) that crimes have occurred on the property and did not take reasonable measures to protect legitimate tenants, customers and other authorized visitors from further crimes.

Client Reviews
John is phenomenal! His staff immediately took me under their wing and he truly became like family to me. A couple of years ago I was involved in an animal attack that truly changed my life. They maintained integrity and humanity in every way to properly navigate my ordeal. I cannot recommend this firm enough, hands down. Tiana Mapp
John is a gem and I'm tremendously glad that I connected with him. Wanting to put my accident behind me ASAP and minimize time and energy spent toward that end, I made the rookie mistake of attempting to settle on my own. I eventually reached an impasse with the insurance company but simply couldn't bring myself to accept their settlement offer. Drained by all the back-and-forth at this point, I didn't thoroughly research options (which is, ironically, a big part of my reason for not obtaining a lawyer in the first place - there are an overwhelming number of personal injury lawyers in the area!) and simply contacted the first lawyer from whom, simply put, I got a good Google vibe - enter John. That positive impression was immediately confirmed via our first phone call (for which he made himself available that very same day) and further cemented throughout subsequent meetings. John exceeded expectations in every metric, netting me over double the initial offer despite my less-than-ideal handling of everything at the outset. He answered every question I had with ease and honesty and was always available and communicative throughout the process. John is personable, compassionate, transparent, and very good at what he does! I can't recommend him highly enough - hope to never need him again but if so, he will now be my first text!
