Some jobs involve a strong risk of violence. Police officers, security guards, and law enforcement personnel are at constant risk of being assaulted, attacked, or even shot at. Hospital workers are often at risk of assaults by patients who have mental health problems and we’ve represented many in this situation. Taxi drivers and rideshare drivers may be subject to violence. Store Clerks are often robbed at gunpoint. In any type of job, a worker may become violent or be exposed to violence for a variety of reasons.

As citizens of the Hampton Roads area and many throughout the nation are now well- aware, on May 31, 2019, a gunman walked into Building Two of the Virginia Beach Municipal Center and opened fire, killing 12 Virginia Beach City Workers.
Since this horrific tragedy, many, particularly some of the families of the slain, have criticized the City for their alleged failure to be transparent in their investigation of the shooting. Others have been discussing whether Building Two should be demolished, while others argue that the building should be saved, but gutted and renovated.
