The Victims’ Recovery Law Center has often accepted cases on behalf of severely injured victims that were previously declined by several of the area’s major law firms, usually because these firms lacked the expertise necessary to provide compensation for victims of crime. However, our firm has successfully resolved almost all of these previously-rejected cases in the clients’ favor, often with a substantial settlement or jury verdict. A typical case that this firm was able to handle successfully after it was rejected by many other firms was the case of a
single father who was shot in the face by the local drug dealer when he exited his apartment building to get his son some pizza. Although the five law firms that rejected this case told the client they were sorry for what happened to him but unable to help, we successfully filed suit against the management company of the apartment building for allowing the drug dealer to ply his trade and terrorize the residents, and settled the case for a substantial, confidential seven-figure amount.
In addition to many shooting cases, we have successfully represented our clients in cases involving victims of professional malpractice, sexual assault, the abuse of minors, sex-trafficking, alcohol service and over-intoxication, murder, arson, fraud, terrorism, police excessive force, inadequate security, civil rights violations, nuisance properties, property collapse, assault and battery, whistleblowers, and involving corporations, governments, and religious institutions that have permitted abuse, and many more.
