A Criminal Matter and a Civil Matter

A criminal case and your civil personal injury claim usually will not run concurrently. This means the criminal matter usually will be resolved before our firm will move forward with your civil personal injury claim. Although our firm does not prosecute crimes, we can be of assistance to sexual assault victims during this process. The civil personal injury matter may include a component of negligent security if the attack was the result of inadequate security.

As the victim of a violent crime, you may be entitled to a variety of potential avenues to compensation. The Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance (MOVA) administers the federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA). VOCA funds grants that are designated to provide counseling services and compensation to victims of crime.

If you or someone you love has been the victim of a sexual assault or rape, you probably want to know what qualifies our firm to deal with this sensitive matter. We deal with seriously injured people on a daily basis and have handled many of these sensitive cases. We see families grieve after the tragic loss of a loved one. We are advocates for the injured and have the resources to consult with experts in nearly all professional fields. Contact Heinlein Beeler Mingace & Heineman, P.C. to speak with someone today.
