Crime Victims’ Rights

Business owners and operators as well as land owners are responsible for keeping their premises reasonably safe for their customers, guests, residents and renters. They have a duty to provide such reasonable security measures as are necessary to protect these individuals from foreseeable violent crime on their premises.

While crime victims rarely are able to collect court ordered restitution from their attacker, compensation is often available through other means.

Crime victims’ compensation may be obtained for victims of various violent crimes including: murder, robbery, assault, battery, domestic violence, kidnapping, rape, sexual assault, sexual molestation, drunk driving, DUI and acts of terrorism.

A crime victim may recover compensation from a variety of negligent business operators including, but not limited to: shopping malls, shopping centers, stores, restaurants, bars, apartment buildings, banks, ATM owners, gas stations, video arcades, bowling alleys, hotels, motels, cruise ships, schools, condominium associations, private security companies, home owners associations, event promoters, parking garage/lot operators, flea markets, office buildings, airlines, day care facilities, hospitals, night clubs, strip clubs, web sites and internet chat rooms.
