Philadelphia Crime Victim Lawyer
A crime may deprive an innocent victim of health, well-being or even life itself. A victim's road to recovery may be a long and challenging one. Crime victims suffer from physical injuries and mental traumas that may take years to overcome. Victims of violent crimes need to know their legal options. One such option is to pursue an inadequate or negligent security claim against the property owner as well as a claim against all the responsible parties in order to recover compensation in the form of money damages. It is true that no amount of money can ever fully compensate a person who has been shot, stabbed, sexually or physically assaulted, raped, kidnapped, or abducted. However, financial compensation pay the victim's medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering as a result of the crime. Compensation is essential as emotional trauma, post-traumatic stress disorders, other mental injuries and physical deformities may prevent the victim of a violent crime from working, obtaining future employment or keeping a job in the future.
At the Lassen Law Firm, our attorneys are highly skilled at identifying which parties may be liable for the injuries the crime victim has suffered. The firm is fully equipped to pursue claims against all the responsible parties, including third parties whose negligence may have played a role in the crime. For example, we have pursued claims against the owners of the property where the crime occurred for their failure to provide proper security.
