Victims of Violent Crimes

Introduction

When a rapist, child molester or drunk driver strikes, the emotional and financial impact may be irreparable. Physical injuries and emotional scars may have lasting consequences for both the victim and his or her family.

In the course of a criminal proceeding to prosecute the perpetrator, the memory of the experience will be relived again and again as the case proceeds through one hearing after another. Thus the lives of the victims are further disrupted in the course of bringing the criminal to trial and incarceration.

This article will explore the legal remedies you may have for obtaining compensation for the loss you have suffered. It will also serve as a guide to the proceedings that follow in a typical path of a criminal proceeding and subsequent civil litigation.
