Tampa Crime Victims Lawyer
Victims of crimes often suffer serious injuries that can impact their physical and emotional health. Not only do they suffer from the crime, they may be left with physical and mental injuries that can impact their lives for years to come. Even if the perpetrator of the crime is convicted, the victim may be left with medical bills, income loss and other damages. In some cases, there may be options to pursue compensation for these damages from others that may have contributed to the crime.
In injury crimes, there may be others that are partially responsible for negligence beyond the person who committed the crime. Shootings, assaults and sexual misconduct that occur at a business or on a property, often could have been prevented. When negligent actions or inactions allow crimes to be committed, the negligent party may be liable for injuries. While these legal cases are complicated, they can offer financial relief for the victims and their families.
Types of Crime Victim Lawsuits
Premises liability and other laws can be used to prove negligence in criminal injury cases. For example, if a business does not provide adequate security for its customers, resulting in a shooting or assault on the property, the business may be liable for the victim’s injuries. There is an extensive amount of investigation and legal work that must be completed to prove these cases, but they can result in substantial compensation for the victim if the lawsuit is successful.
