What To Do When Crime Causes Injury
Fighting For Crime Victims In Southwest Florida
As personal injury attorneys, we help victims of many types of situations that have caused them a serious injury or, in some cases, even their death. We have spent decades fighting for the rights to financial compensation for motor vehicle crash victims, people who have suffered an injury from slipping and falling, construction accident injuries and other cases in which someone acted in a negligent or careless way.
But many people don’t realize that Goldberg Noone attorneys also fight for justice for people who have been victimized by someone committing a violent crime against them.
There are many circumstances where a person can be injured because they were the victim of a crime.
- Shooting victims
- Sexual assault victims
- Assault and battery victims
- Drunk driver victims
- Child molestation victims
There are still other situations in which you may have been injured by a reckless act performed by someone else, like drivers who cause automobile crashes because they were driving drunk, under the influence of drugs or distracted by their cellphones.
Many crime victims have no idea what to do when they are victimized by a violent criminal act and may not realize they have legal rights as well. Our job is to fight for financial compensation to help you with things like medical bills, emotional and mental distress, and other economic hardships caused by the criminal act.
Additionally, one of our firm’s managing partners, Scot Goldberg, was an assistant state attorney prior to opening his private practice. In that role, Scot prosecuted hundreds of criminal cases and gained immeasurable experience that helps our efforts in civil criminal cases.
