Crime Victim Rights
The victim of a crime may file a civil lawsuit against a perpetrator or another responsible party for monetary damages. Regardless the outcome of criminal prosecution, a crime victim may have a strong case for compensation through civil litigation. The civil justice system does not determine whether the party responsible for a victim’s harm is guilty or innocent; rather civil courts ascertain whether someone is liable for the injuries sustained by the victim as a result of the crime. The attorneys at Coit & Payment are experienced handling cases in both the criminal and civil justice systems. If your case involves criminal prosecution, our attorneys’ comprehensive knowledge of criminal and civil law ensures our clients’ rights as victims are being upheld every step of the way through the criminal prosecution process. There is, unfortunately, no way to truly compensate crime victims for what they have endured, but you or your loved one may be entitled to assistance that helps you move forward. Contact the attorneys at Coit & Payment to become aware of the resources and remedies available to crime victims.
Civil lawsuits are available to protect individuals and groups from discrimination and other civil rights violations. Your civil rights include freedom of speech, religion, assembly, and the right to due process. The law also protects against discrimination based on race, sex, sexual or gender identity, ethnicity, physical or mental disability, religion or age. Contact the attorneys at Coit & Payment if you feel your civil rights have been violated.
Wrongful death occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another party. A civil wrongful death lawsuit seeks to recover damages for surviving family members as a result of the loss of their loved one. Common types of wrongful death lawsuits involve medical malpractice, vehicular accidents, and criminal acts that result in death. Contact the civil litigation team at Coit & Payment to discuss the process involved in a wrongful death lawsuit.
