Personal injury lawyers for victims of crime in Wisconsin Lawyers for victims of crime in Wisconsin: starting your lawsuit

A personal injury law firm with an investigator can often uncover hidden sources of liability a layman would never think of.

How much money you can receive from an assault case in Wisconsin depends on several factors. The severity of the assault and the amount of evidence presented will affect your compensation. Cases with little evidence may be settled for less than $50,000. An assault and battery case could be worth over $100,000 if the incident occurred on a property where the owner or manager could have prevented it. Punitive damages could raise the value of your case above $250,000.

Anyone who has been caused harm by another person or business may be entitled to financial compensation in a civil case.

Criminal cases are different in that the accused will also face a separate legal matter in their CRIMINAL case. The most familiar example of this was the OJ Simpson trial of the 1990s.

Civil cases vs criminal cases

In OJ’s criminal case, a jury of his peers did not find him “guilty beyond a reasonable doubt” so he avoided jail. In a separate CRIMINAL case, a different jury found him “guilty by a preponderance of the evidence”. Some scholars have tried to quantify the difference – speculating criminal cases require greater than 98% or 99% certainty, while civil cases require just 51%.

Victim case study – Milwaukee, Wisconsin

In 1997, a Warshafsky client stopped at a check-cashing store so that he could mail his tax forms before midnight. While he was parking his car on the store’s lot, two people held him up and shot him. Investigation revealed that despite a long history of crimes against customers in that location, nothing had been done to provide adequate security, lighting or guards. On the day of the trial, Frank Crivello achieved a very substantial settlement, the amount of which is under a secrecy order.
