If you’ve been a victim of a violent crime in Florida, you might feel helpless and alone. While police work on building their criminal case, you and your suffering might feel like an afterthought.
Unfortunately, this is not uncommon. Victims of crimes often find that their entire life is turned upside down. The physical injuries and psychological trauma inflicted may lead to a lifetime of pain and suffering. Yet, the criminal justice system seems to only care about filing charges and building their criminal case. No one is looking out for you and your family, which can hurt.
That’s where a Florida crime victim attorney can help. With a lawyer on your side, you can seek your own justice and hold your attacker accountable for the harm you’ve suffered.

We Help Crime Victims in Florida
When you or someone you love is a victim of a crime, you deserve to have someone on your side to help you seek justice and obtain compensation for your losses. While criminal charges can be brought against the perpetrator, you may be able to file a civil lawsuit seeking compensation for the damages and suffering you endured. This is separate from the criminal case, and your ability to seek compensation is not dependent on the perpetrator being declared guilty.
Many types of crimes could potentially warrant a civil lawsuit, depending on the circumstances of the case, including:
- Murder or attempted murder
- Armed robbery
- Sexual assault
- Assault and battery
- Stalking or terrorizing
- Sexual molestation
- Intentional infliction of emotional distress and/or mental pain and suffering
- Negligent security
- Domestic violence
- White-collar crimes, such as identity theft, embezzlement, and fraud
At Prosper Shaked Accident Injury Attorneys, PA, we have represented clients in nearly every type of crime victim lawsuit imaginable. Our experienced attorneys understand the challenges that crime victims face and are dedicated to helping them obtain the justice and compensation they deserve. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a crime, do not hesitate to contact us today to schedule a free consultation and learn more about how we can help.

The Florida Office for Victims of Crimes
If you are a victim of a crime in Florida, you may be eligible for financial assistance through the Florida Bureau of Victim Compensation. Funded by the federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA), this program can provide support to cover various expenses related to the crime, such as medical bills, lost wages, and emotional trauma. However, navigating the application process for these funds can be overwhelming and complicated.
Our Florida crime victim attorneys fight aggressively to ensure our clients receive maximum compensation. We will complete all necessary paperwork and ensure your documents are accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive. This includes medical records, receipts, and proof of property damage.
We Can Help You File a Restraining Order
If you are a victim of domestic violence or any other violent crime, we can help you obtain a restraining order or injunction against your perpetrator. A restraining order legally requires the offender to stay away from you, your family, your home, and your workplace. An injunction orders that person to stop doing specific actions, such as contacting you or coming near your property.
Filing for a restraining order or injunction is not easy, especially if you are dealing with the trauma of being a victim of a violent crime. This is where our Florida victim crime attorneys can help. We will help you file a restraining order and do whatever we can to protect you from the person who hurt you.
Please know that restraining orders and injunctions are not foolproof solutions and cannot guarantee your safety. However, they can be an important tool in protecting yourself and your loved ones from further harm.
