New Quinn Presentation Available: “From Prosecution to Suit: Civil Recoveries for Criminal Acts”

Posted on February 22, 2013 by

From the course description: “When the unthinkable happens and someone becomes a victim of a rape, sexual assault or other crime of violence, justice is often sought through the criminal justice system.  However, there is another important side to seeking justice beyond criminal sanctions and penalties against a perpetrator: the civil remedies that may be afforded to a victim of a crime of violence.  Although sometimes the victim will receive some restitution from the criminal or a fund for crime victims, it usually is insufficient compared to the injury the victim has suffered. Join Returning Faculty member Colleen Quinn as she reveals how civil remedies for victims of criminal acts through a civil personal injury case can be of substantial benefit to the client. Ms. Quinn discusses the short term benefits such as how civil remedies provide a victim with compensation for medical and mental health bills, time lost at work, loss of future earning capacity, and funding for future care and treatment, as well as providing the victim the empowerment in holding the perpetrator accountable for his actions.  Ms. Quinn also reveals long term effects of seeking civil remedies often extended to the protection of future targets of sexual assaults and other incidents of violence through holding third parties responsible for their failure to prevent these often foreseeable crimes. Do not miss out on a program that will be highly beneficial to both criminal and civil attorneys alike.”
