Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Proving insufficient security resulted in an assault against you, as a passenger, is a complex undertaking. Recovering what is owed to you by the responsible party can be overwhelming. While it may only seem logical that poor security was what permitted the assault against you, the opposing parties will rework the situation to create doubt as to that reality. They may allege that, even with the strongest security, the assault would have still occurred due to the assailant’s desire to commit the crime. The parties may try to shift responsibility to other potential parties, including you, rather than accept responsibility for the assault you suffered. The opposing counsel may also try to mitigate your damages by picking apart your medical bills and history – ultimately trying to show that your injuries were not a result of the assault incident.
To effectively counter these arguments, you should hire your own legal representation. Doing so will ensure your best interests are protected. Trying to hack a personal injury case of this sort alone will likely result in getting less than you are owed.

You May Be Owed Compensation
At Hach & Rose, LLP, we know what to look for in your situation and how to account for any and all injuries you may have incurred – both seen and unseen, short-term and long-term. These include:
- Broken bones
- Cuts and lacerations
- Black eyes
- Substance abuse issues
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Rape Trauma Syndrome
If you have endured any of the above physical and mental traumas from an assault related to insufficient security on a train, you have rights. While all of these damages vary in severity – and while they may present themselves at different times after an incident – the parties that injured you should be held responsible. Hiring an attorney to fight for you is the best way to get the justice you deserve.
If you were assaulted as a result of insufficient security that could have prevented the assault, then you may also be eligible for additional, less obvious damages. As a result of transportation and security companies holding a special duty to protect you, they are typically liable for the injuries that may have contributed to as a result of their negligence. Even though they did not commit the assault, the lack of protection afforded to you led to the assault occurring. These duty-oriented recovery options may range from punitive damages (if the error to provide security was egregious and reckless) to damages for pain and suffering. Damages like loss of consortium – the relative dynamic and enjoyment of company between you and your loved ones – may also be recovered against the transportation and security companies who failed to protect you. Projected medical bills for long-term care may also be applicable and recoverable. Speaking to an attorney can help you assess what you are eligible to be awarded and are legally entitled to receive.
