Have you been the victim of a violent crime? We can help you get justice, whether or not the person who hurt you was convicted of a crime.
As a former prosecutor, our founder, Attorney William D. Umansky, understands that not every perpetrator is found guilty in criminal court. In order to convict a suspect, the state must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Because of this high burden of proof, criminals often go free. An Orlando violent crime victim lawyer wants to help.
Even if the assailant was not convicted in criminal court, we can file—and win—a civil lawsuit so that you can receive monetary compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and more. In civil court, we only need to prove that the perpetrator was more likely than not to be liable.
We review the police report, talk to the investigating officer, interview witnesses, take photos of the crime scene, and identify all possible sources of financial compensation. Perhaps an employer failed to do a proper background check. Maybe a property owner failed to provide adequate security that could have prevented the crime.
Whether you were the victim of a sexual assault, a drunk driving accident, or a loved one died a wrongful death as a result of a homicide, you can rely on our skills and experience to help you get the compensation you deserve.
