St. Thomas Crime Victim Attorneys
Knowledgeable Personal Injury Lawyers
Despite the vigilance of police officers in the city of St. Thomas and surrounding areas, violent crimes are becoming more and more common. Perhaps on account of the chaos of the uncertain times we are all experiencing in the midst of the pandemic, there have been more acts emanating from fear and anxiety. None of this an excuse, however, for behaving in a manner that hurts someone else.
Since many of these crimes lead to other horrible, long-term consequences of trauma or disability, defense against these terrible events is the primary goal of our firm here at ChancoSchiffer Law, LLC. The limited amount of restitution offered by the criminal justice system will barely end up making the smallest dent on your enormous pile of medical bills, let alone account for the other internal scars you face. Let our St. Thomas crime victim attorneys defend your rights today.
What Types of Crimes Can I Gain Recompense for?
Violent crimes come in all shapes and sizes, occurring in an endless variety of damaging consequences upon their victims as well. No matter what your circumstance is, we are ready to aid you in claiming financial recompense for the pain you have suffered from a violent crime.
Some of the crimes in which we have successfully supported our clients have included:
- Stabbings, shootings, and robberies (whether armed or unarmed)
- Rapes, sexual assaults, and other violent crimes of a sexual nature
- Video recordings of sexual or intimate acts without gaining consent
- Home invasion and commercial robberies
- Muggings, burglary, or assaults which have taken place in streets, alleys, or parking lots
- Battery and brawls occurring inside entertainment locales, bars, restaurants, clubs, and other venues
- Cases of law enforcement abuse where members of the police utilize unnecessary or excessive force
Recovering Compensation for a Violent Crime in the State of Georgia
In addition to the basic medical costs and the bills of related prescription drugs to heal you of your injuries, you will also need to get therapy, treatment, and counseling for the psychological effects that have also been caused by the crime. These could include depression and disorders from stress.
Along with emotional and mental support, therapy for physical rehabilitation is critical to get back to normal life. You will also likely need to be covered for any lost wages incurred from being forced to miss work, or even further income issues if you have been let go on account of a new disability caused by the tragic event.
