When Can a Civil Lawsuit be Filed?

While a criminal trial determines the guilt of the accused and imposes a proper punishment for the guilty party, a civil lawsuit aims to make the victim (or the victim’s family) as whole as possible through crime victim compensation. In most cases, anyone who is a direct victim of a violent crime is eligible to recover monetary damages through a personal injury lawsuit.

Our firm handles the following types of crime victim personal injury cases:

Compensation for crime victims and/or families will cover expenses related to the criminal offense that are not covered by insurance. These costs include medical expenses, counseling and therapy, reimbursement of lost wages, funeral and burial costs, and loss of support for children and other dependents.

Keep in mind, victim restitution is criminal cases are different to monetary damages in civil lawsuits. Additionally, a guilty verdict in a criminal case is not necessary to file a civil lawsuit.
