Whether at a hotel/motel, apartment, retail establishment, college campus, or other location, when rape occurs on private property in Manhattan, it may be the result of negligent security practices by a property owner, manager, tenant, security contractor, or another party.
Under the legal principles of premises liability, these individuals can be held accountable for the damages resulting from a rape-related injury, including pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, and other losses.

How an Attorney Can Help You Prove Fault and File for Damages
Premises liability laws in New York generally require property/business owners, landlords, and property managers to take reasonable measures to ensure that their property is safe from all foreseeable risks of harm. This includes providing adequate security measures to prevent rape and other crimes from occurring on their properties.
Our lawyers will investigate the circumstances of your attack and look for ways in which the property owner or manager neglected to fulfill their legal duty to protect you. Some signs of negligent security include:
- Inadequate monitoring of secluded areas on the property
- Faulty locks on windows and/or doors
- Poorly lighted parking lots
- Overgrown landscaping
- Lack of security guards
- Improper surveillance
- Failure to properly respond to prior dangerous or criminal behavior on their property
Our team will investigate the crime scene, talk to witnesses, review surveillance footage and photos, gather crime statistics and police data, retain experts in premises security, and gather your medical records to support your negligent security claim.
