Obtain or change plaintiff's counsel?
What Does a Plaintiff’s Attorney do?
He or she will be your support and advisor through the legal process, including your help in claiming damages for the crime you have been subjected to. In cases where the guilty perpetrator can not pay the damages to you, there is the possibility of requesting financial compensation from The Crime Victim Authority.
When do you get the Right to this Service?
If you have been the victim of a crime that could lead to imprisonment for the person who committed the crime. It is the court that appoints the plaintiff’s counsel in the first instance and this is only done when the preliminary investigation has begun. This type of assistance is paid for by the state and costs nothing for you as a crime victim. If the defendant is convicted of the crime, he or she may have to pay back the cost of the attorney to the state.
Why do you need a Plaintiff’s Counsel?
When someone has been victimized (children or adults) for a more serious crime or there are personal circumstances or other circumstances which mean that the plaintiff can be assumed to have a particularly strong need for a lawyer, a lawyer is appointed by the court and a replacement is possible. Our lawyers are regularly appointed and help you as a client when you have been victimized. Our experienced team knows how important it is.
