Sexual & Physical Assault
At the Law Offices of Robert H. Astor we represent victims of sexual and physical assaults. We have brought claims against the perpetrators of physical and sexual assaults, and the third parties who have facilitated those assaults, including bars, landlords, security personnel, parents, hotels, schools, nursing homes and hospitals for negligent hiring, failure to supervise, or failure to remedy dangerous situations.
Sexually abusive behavior may give rise to liability on the part of the offending party, as well as liability against those who foster or permit such conduct to occur. We seek recovery not only from the criminal, but also from other responsible parties – such as schools, residential facilities, nursing homes, property owners, employers and hospitals – whose failure to adequately protect the abused and assaulted victim enabled the perpetrator to commit the act.
Among the cases we have handled are claims against a physician for sexually abusing a patient, claims against a parent for failing to properly supervise minors during a gathering at his home, and claims against security personnel for failing to adequately supervise drunken patrons at an establishment.
All initial consultations are free, and we only receive compensation if we prevail on the claim. For more information on claims for physical assault or sexual assault, contact the Law Offices of Robert H. Astor in Springfield, Massachusetts at (413) 781-1144 or the Northampton, Massachusetts office at (413) 584-4348.
