Orlando Workplace Sexual Assault Lawyer
Florida Hotel Rape Lawyer
If you are rape victim in Florida, you may be eligible for compensation beyond our state's Victim Compensation Fund. If you were attacked in your place of employment, a hotel, motel or shopping mall, you may be entitled to additional compensation from the property owners if they were negligent in providing security.
At The Umansky Law Firm, our lawyers represent rape victims in Orlando and other communities in central Florida. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions about your potential recovery from the civil justice system.
Our attorneys view our work as more than obtaining compensation for victims of violent crime. Holding the responsible parties accountable can be a first step in putting your life back together after a traumatic experience. It can also help to protect others from becoming rape victims in the future.
Responsibilities of Property Owners in Sexual Assaults
Employers have a responsibility to protect employees from criminal attacks in the workplace. Similarly, owners of hotels and motels have a responsibility to protect their guests. This area of law is known as premises liability.
Employers and other property owners can help prevent rapes and other criminal attacks by installing video cameras and improved lighting in parking lots and stairwells, hiring private security guards, and requesting additional police patrols. Hotel and motel owners can ensure that ground floor units have window locks and that deadbolt locks are in working condition.
As former prosecutors, our lawyers will work hard with experts to determine what caused the attack and what might be done to protect others from becoming rape victims in the future.
What Compensation Can I Receive?
The Florida Victim Compensation Fund provides compensation for wage loss, loss of support, funeral expenses, medical treatments, mental health counseling and property loss reimbursement.
By filing a personal injury lawsuit, you can also seek compensation for pain and suffering and emotional distress, which are typically the most significant damages in a rape attack.
