Are you a crime victim?
Are you the victim of a crime? Do you need help understanding the criminal justice system? Despite your attempts, do you find it difficult to get the District Attorney to listen to you? And do you want to hold your attacker responsible financially as well as criminally?
These are normal questions and thoughts if you have been a victim of a crime. And for some, the best way to navigate the system as a victim is to hire an attorney.
So how can hiring an attorney help you if you are a victim? First, your attorney can help you understand the process. Your own attorney can help ensure that your voice is heard both in court and by the District Attorney.
But what if you want to hold your attacker accountable financially? What if restitution isn’t enough? If you are a victim of a crime, you may be able to sue your attacker in civil court for damages, which can include pain and suffering and punitive damages.
