Tragically, crime victims are often victimized twice. The first time in the actual criminal incident -- whether it be a kidnapping/abduction, rape, aggravated assault, murder, etc. And then again as the victim tries to recover from the crime. Most criminals, even if caught, do not have sufficient assets to compensate the victim for their tremendous damages including physical and emotional pain and suffering, medical bills, psychological counseling, lost wages, etc. But at the Law Offices of John Day, our award-winning lawyers are dedicated to helping crime victims get the compensation they deserve.
The truth is a lot of crime can easily be prevented. But often, business owners do not want to pay for the reasonable security it would take to keep their customers safe from foreseeable criminal activity. Or, companies fail to follow recognized safety policies before placing employees in positions of trust with children, the elderly or others who are vulnerable to sexual abuse, assaults, rape and other crimes. To prove your case, we work with law enforcement, obtain crime analysis reports and, when necessary, hire security experts to help explain the deficiencies in security measures and safety policies.
