Van Riper & Nies represents individuals and families in Palm Beach county who have suffered an injury, or lost loved ones, due to being a victim of a violent crime. We are known for leaving no stone unturned in the prosecution of injury claims for our clients.
We are a unique plaintiff's law firm. Our attorney, Tim Nies, , is a U.S. military veteran, having served as an Airborne Ranger with the elite U.S. Army 75th Ranger Regiment, and former insurance defense trial attorney. He was a senior Casualty Attorney for Marshall Dennehey, the largest, and arguably, the most respected insurance defense law firm in the world, with more than 450 attorneys. Attorney, Christian Van Riper, was selected as a Law Clerk for the Florida Supreme Court, which is an honor very few attorneys are selected for. Thereafter, Christian began his legal career as a Florida prosecutor, where he aggressively prosecuted and tried multiple serious felony cases, including sex crimes.
The work and life experiences of our attorneys affords our law firm unique and valuable insight into the lives and struggles of our injured clients, how their cases are defended by insurance company lawyers, and with trial experience. Our past experience litigating for insurance companies gives us credibility with the insurance companies, and our knowledge of how insurance companies evaluate and value cases proves effective during the pendency of cases, at mediation and at trial.
In Florida, anyone who is the unfortunate victim of a violent crime has the absolute right to file a lawsuit seeking monetary compensation for injuries suffered as a result of the crime, not only from the criminal directly, but also from others responsible for the conditions which allowed the crime to take place. For example, if a woman was attacked in her hotel room, which had a faulty lock on the door, she would have a claim not only against her assailant, but also against the hotel owner for his failure to repair the lock on the hotel room door.
Our personal injury attorneys help victims of crimes piece their lives back together. As a Florida Prosecutor, our attorney Christian Van Riper gained invaluable experience into the criminal justice field of law, which many other personal injury attorneys lack. He regularly worked with victim advocates in criminal law matters. Christian and Tim represent victims who have suffered physical and mental injuries following the following types of crimes: assault, hate crimes, domestic violence, false imprisonment, wrongful death and stalking. Negligence claims against other parties responsible for allowing the crime to take place include: inadequate security, negligent supervision, negligent hiring and negligent entrustment.
All our personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not take a fee or charge any costs unless we win. For more information about our crime victim practice, please call us at 561-948-5588 or email attorney Tim Nies at email@example.com.
