Did a security failure contribute to this unconscionable Newton Falls bar sexual assault and are justice and compensation available to the victim?

LOCAL NEWS

A woman was allegedly sexually assaulted and at a bar in Newton Falls, Ohio, Saturday night, May 18, 2019.

According to WKBN.com, “[p]olice in Newton Falls are working to solve the sexual assault. It happened about a hundred yards away from the police department underneath the deck of [a lounge]…sometime overnight Saturday into Sunday.”  According to the report, investigators were tipped off when they went to the bar on a different call, “[t]hat’s when it was casually mentioned to [investigators] that a female was found partially disrobed and she was taken home.”  According to the news report, police are asking for the publics help.  Police think “she was raped and someone slipped something into her drink…[w]e’re told the cameras do not work so now we’re reaching out to the public.”

No suspect has been identified but police do say they have possible leads according to the media report.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Bar and Lounge patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this unconscionable assault may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence or assault on property?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the assault? 
  • Was the bar informed of the assault and did the bar call authorities when informed?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the bar owner or property owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her injuries and suffering.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near the property?
  • Was the suspect seen on the property before the incident?
  • What security measures, such as bright parking lot lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Jean-Charles and others at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the property owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Freddie Jean-Charles may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.  Additionally, any surviving victims may also pursue legal claims for their injuries.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that Mr. Freddie Jean-Charles family and any surviving victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
