The District Attorney can put a criminal behind bars for crimes committed against you. But, who helps you, the crime victim become whole again? While the government prosecutes criminal cases, trial lawyers prosecute civil cases arising out of criminal conduct. For example, the government could prosecute the individual who perpetrates a carjacking. But a trial lawyer would bring the case for bad security against the parking garage where the carjacking took place. The government would prosecute the sexual predator for the crime of sexual assault. But a trial lawyer would bring the case against the school or the owner of the store where the assault took place.
Our attorneys have experience handling civil cases on behalf of crime victims and know the importance of working hard to obtain financial compensation for losses sustained as a result of the crime committed. Putting the perpetrator behind bars doesn’t help the crime victim pay medical bills. A trial lawyer helps with that and much more.
