“I thought I was safe here.”
That’s something you will often hear after a crime has been committed in an area where someone expected to be secure. Nobody goes out planning on what to do if someone tries to rob or assault them. If that was a constant fear, we would never leave our homes. Usually, we can count on property owners to keep their premises safe for patrons.
But what happens when they fail to do so and we become the victim of a crime?

If you are the victim of a crime, you could be harmed both physically and mentally. Long after the physical wounds heal, you may be dealing with emotional scarring.
