Crime Victim Compensation For Injury

We live in a society where anger and frustration all too often leads to violence. Though the perpetrator may be criminally prosecuted, this may leave the victim without any compensation for the damages inflicted. The Court could order restitution for out of pocket expenses, but the perpetrator often in prison is usually unable to pay for serious damage suffered by the victim.

At times, however, there are others that share in the culpability for the damages suffered by the victim. For instance, the following are some of the cases that I personally and successfully handled:

  • Landlord lawsuit for assault committed by dangerous tenant.
  • The State of Arizona sued for placing a child with dangerous foster parents.
  • Parents sued for assault committed by their minor son.
  • School sued for not preventing janitor’s sexual contact with students.

Any crime victim that sustains serious injury should consult with an attorney to determine whether there is the possibility of securing compensation for the injury.

Lawyers typically handle cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that the victim has no financial risk for attorneys’ fees in pursuing a claim. The lawyer only collects a fee if he or she is successful in resolving the claim.
