What Rights Do You Have?
Crime victims in Pennsylvania do have certain rights and we will help you pursue them. For example, during the criminal process, you have the right to certain information regarding the proceedings, you have the right to attend the proceedings with an advocate to support you, and you have the right to give input at sentencing.
In addition, you can bring a civil claim against your attacker, even if the person was not convicted of the crime. The burden of proof for a civil claim is lower than that in criminal court, so a jury may still find in your favor. If a court did convict your attacker, however, that is powerful evidence for your civil case.
You can sue the perpetrator and anyone else responsible for your attack. For example, if your employer was negligent regarding security for your workplace or in hiring the attacker, you can sue your employer. If another company owns the building where you work, perhaps they failed to provide proper security. We can review your case with you and help you determine the best course of action.
