Crime Victim in Los Angeles
Compensation for Crime Victims
If you have been made the victim of a crime, then criminal punishment for the perpetrator may not be enough. You may have suffered physical injury or other damages that have had a significant impact on your life, both emotionally and financially. It is important to know that you are not without options. It is within your rights to file a civil suit against the perpetrator in an attempt to recover compensation for the expenses related to the crime. A Los Angeles lawyer for crime victims can represent in you in your case in order to maximize your chances of securing the restitution you deserve.
It may be possible for you to recover compensation from more than one source if you have been harmed in a criminal act. If the crime took place on someone else's property, then the owner or manager of that property may be held responsible if they failed to make sure that the premises was safe and secure. You may be entitled to damages if you have been victimized on a property such as a:
- Parking lot
- Parking garage
- School campus
- Apartment building
- Convenience store
- Gas stations
