Surviving Family Of Homicide Victims

Lawyer for Homicide Victim's Families

After a murder has taken place, we depend on police and prosecutors to pursue the perpetrators of these heinous acts to the utmost of their abilities. We expect them to seek justice for society by punishing the killer. But what about the rights of the surviving family? What opportunities exist for bereaved family members to seek full justice and compensation through civil litigation remedies?

Homicide is a nightmare for family members who are left to grieve and ask endless, unanswerable questions such as, "Why?" "If only . . . . ." or "How could this horrible thing have happened in our family and in our community?" Justice from society's point of view may come about through the criminal justice system, but justice for the family may include a civil lawsuit against the perpetrator and any other responsible parties such as property owners.

Psychologist Liability: Mr. Glicksman has experience with cases against a psychiatrist or psychologist for not warning the victim that the patient may cause them harm. He has handled tragic cases where counselors knew or should have known that their patient was a risk to kill an innocent person. In those instances, he recovered from the counselor after the patient killed someone. In one case, the counselor never warned a wife about her husband's violent threats against her. The husband wound up killing his wife, his two children, and himself. Mr. Glicksman represented the deceased woman's mother.
