Success in Crime Victim Compensation Cases
When it comes to compensation for crime victims, the law is clear. A person or party who intentionally harms a person through a criminal act, or whose negligence creates a condition that facilitates a criminal act, is liable for damages. However, success in such cases does not always come easily. Many criminals do not have significant financial resources or insurance coverage, and so that may not be a potential source of compensation. But if the crime occurred due to the failure of a property owner to maintain a safe premises or failure to properly supervise an employee, we may able to initiate a lawsuit to obtain compensation from that source.
If you have been the victim of a sexual assault, rape, gun-related crime, or any other crime, the physical and emotional pain may linger. But by taking action you can achieve closure, peace of mind, and compensation for the wrongs done to you.
I will carefully research your case, to identify those responsible for the harm that you suffered and the total extent of your losses and suffering. My goal will be to build a strong and persuasive case designed to maximize the compensation you receive from all sources.
