Crime Victim Compensation
Largo, Maryland, Crime Victim Compensation Lawyer
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a crime in the state of Maryland or in Washington, D.C., you may be able to recover financial assistance from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Fund or the Crime Victim Compensation Program. The amount you can recover varies for each case, but the fund can be used to help defray the costs of injuries and funerals.
However, governmental crime victim compensation funds do not cover the full costs of medical bills, lost wages and other consequences from serious injuries. If you are the victim of a crime (for example: a home invasion at an apartment building) that occurred on commercial property or within a business establishment, you owe it to yourself and to your family to seek fair compensation for your injuries.
Was a crime perpetrated against you on commercial property or within a business establishment due to another person’s criminal act? In the Maryland or Washington, D.C., area, call 301.883.8888 today for a free initial consultation with the Stan Derwin Brown Law Office.
Are Crime Victims Entitled to Compensation?
As a crime victim you may be entitled to compensation but every negligent security case is different. Commercial property owners and business owners have a legal responsibility to prevent home invasions at apartment buildings, etc. and to provide a reasonable level of security that meets all local, state and federal regulations. This may include providing properly trained security personnel, having proper lighting in parking lots, or having operable locks on apartment building doors. When property owners or business owners are negligent with respect to the level of security they have provided, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries you suffer as a result of someone’s criminal act.
Experienced, crime victim attorney Stan Brown will work diligently to secure the compensation you need to cover all of your damages including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering. He will never settle for anything less than what you need to mount a full recovery from your serious injuries.
