Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to the most commonly asked questions about crime victims’ cases.

No, physical injuries are not a requirement for a civil case. The emotional and psychological impact of the crime can also be grounds for a claim. Our firm recognizes that some injuries are not visible, and we work to ensure that these are given due consideration in your case.

It is not uncommon for victims of crimes to delay reporting the incident, and this does not necessarily bar you from pursuing legal action. However, it is important to be aware of the statute of limitations, which is the deadline by which you must file a lawsuit. These deadlines vary depending on the jurisdiction and the specific cause of action. Waiting too long may risk your ability to bring a civil case. Our team can provide a thorough evaluation of your case to determine the relevant statute of limitations and help ensure that your rights are preserved. We encourage you to reach out as soon as possible to avoid any potential bar to seeking the justice and compensation you deserve.

Absolutely. Identifying all potentially liable parties is one key aspect of our work. Beyond the perpetrator, there may be others whose actions or lack of action contributed to the harm you suffered. We meticulously review the circumstances to determine all avenues for recourse. This could involve third party liability of individuals/businesses who may have negligently contributed to the crimes that occurred.

No. The standards of proof in civil cases are different from those in criminal cases. It’s possible to pursue a civil case successfully even if the criminal case did not result in a conviction or charges were dropped. We can help you understand the differences and the potential for a civil claim.

Damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, medical bills, counseling costs, and compensation for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of companionship. In certain cases, punitive damages might also be applicable. We’ll work with you to assess the full extent of your damages to ensure comprehensive representation.

Your safety and confidentiality are our top priorities. We employ all legal measures to protect your identity and personal information throughout the legal process. If there’s a risk of retaliation, we will take steps to mitigate it and ensure your protection. We also fight to have our sexual assault survivors to proceed under a Jane Doe or John Doe to protect their identity. Florida also have anti SLAAP statutes to help protect consumers where the defendant’s primary motivation is to intimidate the target into silence by the sheer burden and expense of having to defend the suit.

If you have more questions or need further clarification, we encourage you to reach out to us. Lipinski Law is here to offer the guidance and advocacy you need to pursue justice and healing.
