Crime Victims’ Lawyer in Portland, Oregon
If you were a victim to a crime, you may be owed more than seeing the criminal prosecuted. The perpetrator may or may not be adequately punished, but a criminal prosecution does not make you whole again. Talk to me, an experienced crime victims’ lawyer to evaluate your potential civil claim.
I am prepared to represent you as your lawyer for a crime victim’s civil claim, such as those involving:
- Drunk driving
- Vehicle collision
- Sexual abuse
- Burglary and home invasion
- Property damage
Even if the state did not criminally prosecute the perpetrator or if you did not report the crime, you may still be able to recover in a civil claim.
Seek the justice that will help restore what was taken from you.
As a crime victim, you have suffered, sometimes multiple times when you had to retell your story for a criminal prosecution. A civil lawsuit can help you use your experience to gain something for yourself.
There are resources available to you as a crime victim through government services, and you should explore those. But those resources may be insufficient for your recovery. A civil claim can help you obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost earnings, damaged property, future care, emotional trauma, and pain and suffering. And in the tragic cases that result in death of a loved one, you may be owed funeral costs and compensation for loss of companionship.
Your civil case can be affected by the criminal prosecution. I understand civil law, personal injury law, and criminal law. I can help you seamlessly navigate between all components of your case as a crime victim.
