Victim of a Shooting? How You Can Recover Your Financial Losses

Tragedy struck on May 31, 2019 when a gunman opened fire at Virginia Beach Municipal Center, taking 12 lives and losing his own at the end.

Immediately following a sad event like a shooting, the primary concern is the physical safety of the victims. But soon afterwards, the survivors will realize that they’ve also been harmed financially.

Financial loss can occur in the form of:

  • Loss of income if a family’s primary income earner died in the shooting
  • Costs for therapy and counseling
  • Medical bills
  • Loss of income if a shooting survivor is permanently disabled and cannot work
  • Damage to personal property such as vehicles, computers, and equipment

You may be anxious about the possibility that a shooting could take place right here in Atlanta. If you are directly impacted by such a terrifying event, then you could also suffer financial loss.

Who is responsible, then?

While victims can file a civil lawsuit against the perpetrator of a shooting, this doesn’t guarantee they’ll have their expenses covered since the shooter may not have the funds to cover the survivors’ treatment. In other cases, the shooter may flee the crime scene unidentified. Lastly, as is clear in the recent Virginia Beach shooting, the perpetrator may perish at the scene without being held accountable.

What else can you do? Establish whether the facility where the shooting took place has adequate insurance to pay for injuries suffered on their property. If not, then they may be held liable in court.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a shooting, then contact our legal team for a free consultation to discuss options for recovering your financial losses.
