The Krause Law Firm devotes substantial time and resources to representing injured crime victims. Being the victim of a crime is nerve-racking, but suffering any type of physical harm and emotional trauma makes an already difficult occurrence even worse. We represent Atlanta crime victims who have been injured due to someone else’s illegal activities, negligence, and wrongdoing.

Crime Victim’s Injuries

We understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll being a victim of a crime can take on a person. Based on our years of experience, some of the difficulties that crime victims may face include:

  • Extensive medical treatment for serious physical injuries
  • Problems focusing and concentrating if or when they return to work
  • Financial issues
  • Post traumatic stress disorder

We use our legal expertise and professional staff to develop a strong case proving all of the damages you have suffered as a result of the other party’s wrongdoing and criminal acts. We perform thorough investigations to find out if there are any assets or insurance claims that can be pursued to help our clients get the compensation they need and deserve.

Atlanta Crime Victim’s Compensation

Atlanta crime victims may receive little to no compensation for their injuries without experienced attorneys fighting on their behalf. The amount of restitution received through the criminal courts may be quite limited. When you have been the victim of a crime, it is possible to litigate claims for wrongdoing and misconduct in civil court. We review each case to determine the full extent of damages that can be recovered. Our law firm exhausts every legal option available to ensure that you get the maximum financial recovery possible under the law. You deserve to be compensated for the expenses and losses you have endured as a result of the crime committed against you.

Special Due To Criminal Activity

If a loved one is hurt or killed due to criminal activity, just as in all wrongful death situations, the family can bring a wrongful death suit. Unfortunately, most criminals have limited financial resources, if any.

Yet, if the criminal activity occurred at a hotel, apartment complex, retailer, gas station, restaurant or bar, these businesses have an obligation to protect their customers and potential customers from harm.

A recent case was decided in favor of the victim, after he was beaten up at Six Flags, by Six Flags’ employees. There, the plaintiff showed that the company had been hiring employees who were also active gang members, and that the reason for the assault was because of the gang’s culture.
