How We Get Civil Justice for Crime Victims

I want to talk to you about the work that we do here, representing survivors and victims of crime all throughout South Carolina and helping them receive maximum financial compensation from the wrongdoers that harm them, regardless of what the criminal justice system decides to do. We help people who’ve been sexually assaulted, raped, victims of police brutality, or survived other forms of sexual abuse. We hold the wrongdoers financially responsible for the harm that they caused them.

The criminal justice system may decide to press charges. Hopefully, they punish the wrongdoer for the harm that they caused.

Even Without Criminal Charges, Bailey Law Firm Can Help

At Bailey Law Firm, regardless of what the criminal justice system decides, or does not decide to do, we make sure that our South Carolina clients receive justice. We help them regain a sense of control and seek financial compensation to hold the wrongdoer responsible for the harm that they caused.

If you’re a survivor or a victim of a crime in South Carolina, it’s the state versus the defendant, who is a wrongdoer. As a survivor and a victim, unfortunately, you are just a witness. The state and the prosecutors are not your lawyers. They represent the people of the state of South Carolina versus the wrongdoer who is the defendant. Oftentimes, unfortunately, your interests may differ from the prosecutor’s and the state’s view of the case. They might offer a plea deal that you are not happy with. They may even decide to dismiss the criminal charges against the defendant and the wrongdoer.

Finding Civil Justice for Survivors

At Bailey Law Firm, we give control back to the survivor and back to the victim. I will make sure that you’re able to pursue the wrongdoer and that you can hold them responsible regardless of what the criminal justice system decides to do. We could file a civil action to hold the wrongdoers responsible, and financially hold them accountable for the wrong that they’ve done. Then, you can use the finances and the compensation that you get from your wrongdoer to help move forward in the future, as best as you can. Whether that’s receiving therapy, medical treatment, or restitution in any form, we make sure that your interest is paramount. We pursue the wrongdoers and hold them financially responsible for the harm that they’ve caused you.
