Being A Victim Of A Crime and Civil Claims
My loved one was a victim of a crime in Mississippi, Do I possibly have a civil claim?
When a loved one is hurt or killed resulting from a crime, suing someone is usually the last thing on your mind. But with the costs of hospital bills, funeral expenses, and the loss of income, support and companionship of someone close to you finding out whether or not you have a legal remedy outside of the criminal justice system can make a world of difference. In the state of Mississippi, if a business owner could reasonably expect for a crime to occur under the circumstances, they have a duty to provide adequate security measures to protect the public.
Was the person attacked at a business, ATM, school, apartment building, or in the parking lot of either?
Were there adequate security measures in place that would have prevented what happened?
Do you know of other crimes that have also happened in the area?
If you live in Mississippi and your answer to any of those questions is “maybe” then you need to consult an attorney.
If you or a loved one were injured in a crime at a bank, shopping center, bar, hotel, restaurant, school or university, parking lot, apartment building, event, club, daycare, nursing home, hospital, office building, gas station or any other business you should contact the attorneys at Chhabra & Gibbs, P.A. immediately to help with the process of gathering and preserving evidence that will be needed in order to have the best chance of winning the case.
