Compensation for Crime Victims

Lawyers that are a part of our criminal justice legal team represent people and their loved ones who have been victimized by criminal activity in Chattanooga and throughout the region. Many times we handle cases for our clients when they have been victimized by criminal activity that was linked to or should have been stopped by companies that were not being responsible. The companies could have outdated or not enough safety measures in place. They could also be companies that have provided alcohol to customers that are not old enough or that provide too many alcoholic beverages to their customers. A few of the typical claims of people that have been victimized by criminal activity are claims such as:

  • people victimized by being assaulted in some way and stolen from
  • Rape
  • Vehicular Manslaughter
  • People injured when Drivers are intoxicated
  • Hazing Victims
  • Homicide
  • Mistreatment by Security Guards
WHAT STEPS SHOULD I TAKE IF I HAVE BEEN VICTIMIZED BY CRIMINAL ACTIVITY?

When you or someone you love has been victimized by criminal acts, you should get treated for any injury as soon as possible and call the police to report the criminal activity. Then you should speak to a Tennessee criminal activity lawyer right away. It is also a good idea to keep any paperwork that is connected to what happened such as treatment you received and pictures of an injury you may have suffered. Also, get the names of any witnesses to the crime or other victims to the crime.

WHAT OCCURS AFTER I HAVE CONTACTED AN ATTORNEY ABOUT MY CLAIM?

Our attorneys will start by asking you and other people that may have saw the criminal activity anything you can remember pertaining to the criminal act. We may speak with people such as:

  • police and other criminal investigation personnel
  • Security personnel that may have been there when the criminal act took place
  • Crime scene experts
  • Medical professionals
  • Other people that may have been around when the crime occurred such as people you live near and acquaintances

Then when all this evidence has been gathered, our legal team will determine if the criminal activity could have been prevented and how. Our legal team will examine the prior criminal activity in the area to help determine if the property owner knew or should have known that this criminal activity was likely to occur. We work to see to it that those victimized by criminal actions get the explanations they may need.
