Violent Crime

Compensating survivors of violent crimes for their losses is an important function of the civil justice system. The criminal justice system is not designed to do this. For many crime victims, civil litigation against the perpetrators and responsible third parties is the only way they are able to achieve some form of justice and move on. Laws that make it more difficult for crime victims to sue, so-called “tort reforms,” not only hurt crime victims, but also make society less safe.
