Criminal Acts

criminal acts

An injury from a criminal act can happen when you least expect it. We’re here to help.

If you are punched, kicked, stabbed, shot, or robbed by someone else, the criminal justice system can only do so much to take care of the problem. There may be an opportunity to recover civil damages from the person at fault or to obtain compensation through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board.

Unlike other types of claims, no one has insurance that will pay a victim for injuries caused by an intentional or criminal act. A personal injury lawyer at Lerners can help review your specific situation to see if you have a claim that is large enough to advance against a criminal who has harmed you. An injury lawyer at Lerners might be able to help you determine whether the wrongdoer has any assets to pay or if someone else may also be responsible.
