Victims of Violent Crimes

A violent crime is any criminal offense which involves the use or threat of force or violence.  The seriousness of the injuries to the victim, whether or not guns or other weapons were used and/or whether or not the alleged perpetrator has a criminal record, will alter the crime’s seriousness.

The most common violent crimes are:

  • Aggravated assault
  • Arson
  • Assault and battery
  • Domestic violence
  • Hate crimes
  • Homicide
  • Terrorism
  • Theft/larceny
  • Murder
  • Rape or other sexual assault
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated assault
  • Simple assault

A violent crime can involve an act where violence is the objective (murder), or it may be a means to an end (robbery).  Often times, violent crimes against individuals and their property are typically infused with hatred, or at the very least an incredible disregard for the worth and rights of another human being, which may alter the crime’s severity in the eyes of a judge or jury.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of a violent crime, the lawyers at Revelli & Luzzo will fight for your justice.
