Philadelphia Assault Victim Lawyers

Helping Pennsylvania Assault Victims Recover Compensation

When you have been the victim of a physical assault, in addition to any criminal action that can be taken against your assailant, you can also seek compensation for any physical injuries you sustained. You may be unable to work because of your injuries, or you may have significant medical bills that won't be reimbursed by your insurance company. You want an experienced Philadelphia personal injury lawyer who knows the law and legal procedures, and who has helped other personal injury victims, to help you pursue full financial recovery for all your losses. At Metzger & Kleiner, we bring more than 40 years of experience to personal injury victims throughout the Philadelphia metro area and the Lehigh Valley, including people who have been hurt in an unprovoked assault. We know that you can face emotional challenges when recovering from a personal injury. We will work closely with you throughout the process, keeping you fully informed of all developments, as well as of your options and likelihood of success. We offer a free initial consultation. To arrange an appointment, contact us online or call us at 215-567-6616 in Philadelphia, or 610-435-7400 in the Lehigh Valley.

Assault Due to Inadequate or Negligent Security

Property owners have a responsibility to provide a reasonably safe environment for workers, residents and visiting patrons. If an individual is sexually assaulted or attacked due to unsafe conditions on a property, the property owner may be held responsible. Our personal injury attorneys recover compensation for assault victims from sources such as the commercial liability insurance in premises liability actions. Providing a safe environment includes much more than having a video camera or security guard on duty. Property owners have a duty to take necessary precautions to avoid potential instances of assault or other violence. Such precautions may include having:
  • Adequate lighting to deter crime
  • Functioning video cameras that are monitored
  • Security officers that routinely canvas the property for suspicious conduct
  • Proper security at doors, including keyed entrances
  • Adequate security officers at concerts, sporting events or other events
  • Policies against over-serving alcohol to patrons
  • Adequate employee screening and training to avoid potential assaults against nursing home residents or hospital patients
We have considerable experience handling claims involving inadequate or negligent security that results in an attack. We represent assault victims who have been attacked in a nursing home, movie theater, hotel/motel, parking lot, department store, restaurant, bar or club, business, hospital, apartment building or other establishment.

Sexual Assault By a Doctor

Our Philadelphia personal injury attorneys also have experience representing patients who have been sexually assaulted by their doctor or other medical professional. If you were sexually abused or assaulted by your doctor, or believe you were raped while under anesthesia, seek legal advice as soon as possible.
