Counsel for crime victims
As a victim of crime ("målsägande") you can be entitled to a legal counsel ("målsägandebiträde"), often a lawyer, who will help and support you in the criminal proceedings.
The court appoints the legal counsel and the state will cover the costs for the counsel. You have the possibility to ask for a certain lawyer to be appointed by the court as legal counsel for you. The legal counsel will assist you during police questionings, hearings in court and pursuit your claim for compensation for injuries or damages.
