Victims actually do have rights

If you’ve ever been the victim of a crime, you may think the accused has all the rights. But victims are gaining new ground all the time. Victims’ rights are observed in all states, though which rights you have vary from state to state and even from county to county. If you’re the victim of a crime, inform yourself of your rights and then fight diligently for them.

In additional to criminal proceedings, you may also be able to pursue civil proceedings against your perpetrator. Through civil proceedings you can often be restored any financial or punitive damages you suffered from the crime.

You may have to fight for your rights, but it will be worth it to assure your continued protection from further criminal action. Sign up for victim notification services, follow up with legal proceedings, and get your life back on track. You don’t have to let a crime rule your life. Learn more from this infographic.
