Negligent Security

If you were injured in a criminal act of assault or rape, you are entitled to seek money damages if the property owner — including the municipal entity operating the property — can be proven to have supplied insufficient security to protect the public from harm.

We are the personal injury litigation attorneys of Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C., in New York. Our city has one of the highest crime rates in the world. Too often, the criminal party is left unpunished for the injuries to victims, or the victim has nowhere to turn for money damages for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering associated with the assault or rape.

Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum is recognized as one of New York City's leading premises liability litigation firms, with extensive experience pursuing insurance claims against negligent property owners and government entities responsible for public safety on their property. If you or a loved one has suffered injury by assault or sexual assault in New York, we will answer your questions and explain the process for seeking compensation from the responsible parties.

Deadline for Filing Against a Municipal Entity

Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum has extensive experience representing plaintiffs in claims involving municipal liability. Under the law, typically, someone pursuing an action against the City of New York has only 90 days in which to file an intent to claim notification with the city. It is important to talk to us as soon as possible after the incident.

We will evaluate your case and explain your options for seeking compensation. Our firm will handle all details related to investigating the incident, gathering records and reports, and negotiating a full and fair settlement with the government entity held liable for damages. We prepare all cases for trial, in the unusual event a settlement cannot be reached out of court.
