Victims of Murder and Manslaughter

murder and manslaughter

In 2010, 360 murders occurred in the State of Tennessee. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) tracks the locations of where murders occur; and for 2010, most of the murders (215) took place at a residence such as a home or apartment building. Perhaps not surprisingly, other locations with increased incidences of murder included parking lots and parking garages, hotels and motels, and bars.

In some situations, a murder victim's family may be entitled to compensation by the apartment building, parking lot, hotel or other business where the murder occurred. For instance, if an apartment building, hotel or parking garage ignores the high level of crime occurring at the property and a tenant or customer is murdered, the victim's family may be entitled to compensatory damages for the victim's pain and suffering, medical bills, funeral bills, loss of consortium, etc. regardless of whether the assailant is ever captured.

Cases involving victims of crime require a thorough analysis of the relevant crime data for the property and the established safety protocols for the business at issue. Experts are often required to help establish the business was negligent in providing adequate security.

At the Law Offices of John Day, our award-winning lawyers are experienced in investigating and winning cases involving criminal acts, and we are committed to helping victims of crime get the justice they deserve.  Because of his dedication to the rights of crime victims, John Day was recently asked to speak at a conference hosted by The National Center for Crime Victims.  John's speech to crime victim advocates focused on using civil litigation to both protect victims' rights and force companies to implement better safety practices.

We handle all crime victims cases on a contingency basis which means we only get paid if we recover money for you. And because we advance all case expenses, you do not pay anything out of pocket to pursue your rights.
