Los Angeles Lawyers Representing Victims of Violent Crimes

Serving Clients throughout Southern California

Victims of violent crimes receive some measure of vindication when an offender is punished by the criminal justice system for their crimes. Some judgments in criminal cases may also include restitution to the victim of a crime, but this often is not enough to offer proper compensation.

In some cases, a victim of violent crime may elect to pursue a civil case for damages against the perpetrator. This can involve filing suit based on liability for intentional infliction of injury. These cases commonly arise out of acts of violence such as battery, sexual assault, kidnapping, robbery, and murder.

Often, trying to hold an offender liable may not be difficult. The difficult task arises when attempting to collect damages from a perpetrator who may not have the financial means to pay judgment, particularly if the perpetrator has been incarcerated. In these types of cases, a victim may seek to hold other parties responsible. This can occur in cases where an unsafe condition was created which allowed the crime to be committed or someone with a duty to supervise and protect the victim failed in that obligation. In this case, a third party other than the perpetrator may also be held liable.


Under California law, victims of violent crimes may be entitled to compensation from a liable party for physical injuries arising from the violent crime, mental or emotional damages, future lost wages, and punitive damages.
