In order to file a successful civil claim, you will need to hire an attorney to represent you. Civil cases involving the financial and non-financial consequences of criminal conduct are complicated. In most cases, they do not involve filing a lawsuit against the criminal directly. Instead, most cases involve claims against business and property owners, and they seek compensation on the grounds that the business or property owner failed to take adequate measures to prevent criminal conduct on its premises.

If you were shot or assaulted on someone else’s property, it is important that you seek help right away. This includes seeking medical attention and speaking with an attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney will need to conduct an investigation in order to determine whether the owner of the business or property where you were injured is liable, and this investigation needs to be conducted before critical evidence disappears. If you have waited to seek help, it may not be too late. But it is now even more important that you speak with an attorney immediately.
