Hi- I am trying to find out whether or not I can have a civil case against a resturant. I was raped and brutally assaulted on a beach- on an island where there are alot of resturants and bars there. they found the attacker and turned out he works at one of the resturants there, and also is housed there for the summer, He is 100 percent illegal. I was told by my attorney friends I can sue the resturant for alot of money because they are hiring illegal immigrants, and are putting patrons at risk when they do not do background checks. I just want to verify whether or not I have a case before i move foward with this.
