A Civil Lawsuit for Violent Assault Victims
Violent assault victims have the right to file lawsuits against their offenders and others who may have played a role in the crimes committed against them. A civil case is not about the offender’s guilt or innocence and prison is not a result of such a lawsuit. Instead, civil lawsuits provide violent assault victims with a way for holding the offender financially responsible for injuries and damages suffered due to the violent crime.
When a defendant is found civilly liable for the injuries and damages sustained by a violent assault victim, the court may require them to compensate the victim for suffered damages. While this money may not change many of the effects of the victimization, it can provided resources to help the victim rebuild their life. For others held accountable through civil action, such as property owners, business people or others, penalties of civil actions work to ensure no one else is victimized in the same manner on their property, or at their place of business, in the future.
In addition to filing a lawsuit against to person that caused injury, there are other possible negligence involved such as premises liability and negligent security. These two areas can play a significant role in your suit.
