Are You Aware Of The Rights You Have As A Victim Of A Crime?
Perhaps you found yourself in the crossfire of a fight at the local bar or the target of a random robbery. Either way, as a victim of a crime, you may have suffered serious injuries or at least experienced a degree of trauma for which you may need treatment.
At Isenberg & Hewitt, PC, we have over 25 years of experience helping victims of crimes in Georgia get the legal and monetary recourse they deserve. Let us help you, too.
The Options You Have After A Crime
Knowing your rights as a crime victim can help you alleviate any worries or concerns you may feel in the aftermath of the event. Whether you are fearful of retaliation or uncertain of your future, we are here to keep you informed and help you exercise your rights.
Every victim has the right to:
- Protection from intimidation or threats, as well as retaliatory actions
- Be informed of their rights, important proceedings and services available to them
- Receive restitution from the offender
- Apply for compensation through the state
Although some of the rights we listed give you the option to recover damages, you may also work with an attorney to obtain direct compensation.
Pursue Direct Or Third-Party Compensation With Our Help Today
Through civil court, we can pursue your attacker or a third party that is equally responsible for your injuries. For example, if your injuries were the result of poor security at a bar or hotel, you may seek indemnity from the owner of the establishment.
