Legal Options for Victims and Families of Shooting Deaths

Attorney contributor Aaron Blank works with victims of violent crimes. Attorney Blank shared his knowledge to aid families and victims of violent crimes to decide if they should take legal action. Mr. Blank may help answer questions such as “Can I sue someone for shooting me?” He does not represent any of the parties in the story above.

“When a victim of a violent crime is killed, several options are available to the family members of the victims. Restitution may be sought for the perpetrator after conviction in a criminal court, but will likely not be significant enough for funeral expenses and other expenses related to the death. Criminal courts were not designed to safeguard the victim’s rights or compensation. A private suit will need to be filed within your state.

Determining who, what, when, where and why the crime occurred and the type of negligence is key to civil cases. The civil attorney must assess all of the proof and check their resources within security guidelines to help win the case. There are several routes victims and families may take during a private civil suit like wrongful death and negligent security of a third-party (if applicable).

A family member of a victim in a wrongful death suit may bring a claim against a perpetrator or property owner to compensate for what the family has lost since losing the loved one, medical bills associated with the death, and possibly, the loss of income on behalf of the loved one (generally a spouse),” describes Blank.
