About Sexual Assault and Its Effects

Sexual assault comes in the form of inappropriate touching, groping, rape, and a number of other types of sexual misconducts. The parties who suffer sexual assault are often left with a number of physical injuries. However, sexual assaults are notable for the emotional and mental distress that victims suffer. The victims of sexual assault are often left dealing with PTSD, panic, embarrassment, depression, fear, anxiety, and anger, for example. In many cases, victims of sexual assault can never move forward from such a traumatic event. Most victims of sexual assault must undergo long-term therapy to even be able to speak about their experience. If you were the victim of sexual assault at a nightclub, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance as soon as possible. The parties liable for the harm that you suffered must face the consequences of their negligence. If you would like to learn more about filing a claim for security guard sexual assault at a nightclub, do not hesitate to contact our law firm today.

Who is Liable for Security Guard Sexual Assault?

Who is liable for the sexual assault that you suffered? Liability for sexual assaults depends on the specific details of your claim and the circumstances under which your sexual assault occurred. Without a doubt, the security guard that attacked you and subjected you to sexual assault is responsible for the harm that you suffered. However, other parties could have some liability, depending on the circumstances.

Consider the following:

  • Security guard company liability -if the security guard posted at the nightclub was hired through a security company, both the security guard and the security guard company could be liable for the harm that you suffered.
  • Nightclub liability -if the security guard posted at the nightclub was hired directly with the nightclub, the nightclub could be liable for the actions of the security guard. If the security guard was hired through a third-party but the owner/manager of the nightclub was aware of incidents or failed to notify the third party, the nightclub could also be liable.
Liability is based on negligence. In terms of hiring, parties could be negligent. Security guard companies (as well as nightclubs if directly hiring security) could practice negligent hiring. They could fail to subject prospective security guards to thorough background checks, which would identify criminal backgrounds (a history of violent sexual crimes) that would make them ineligible to work for them. In addition, there could also be issues with negligent supervision. Some people with sexual criminal tendencies are not identified by background checks because they have never been arrested, for example. When there is negligent supervision, these parties are allowed to work even if they are showing concerning behavior; since there is no competent supervision, major red flags go unnoticed meaning that these guards are free to subject unsuspecting victims to sexual assault. With negligent supervision, claims and reports could also go unseen, which could result in the number of victims to increase.
Nightclubs and security guard companies could also be negligent in failing to address issues of which they are aware. For example, if victims come forward and report the sexual assaults committed by their security guards, it is the duty of the nightclubs and security guard companies (depending on the situation) to take action as soon as possible. If they fail to remove the security guard from his or her position and continue to allow the guard to harm others, they could be found negligent and liable for the harm that victims suffered.
