How Bradley Law Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help if You Were Victimized by Jeffrey Epstein
The Jeffrey Epstein situation is one of the most despicable in recent history. Unfortunately, the matter permeates much further than Mr. Epstein himself. Other people played a significant role in what happened, and the situation is far from resolved to this day, even though Mr. Epstein is no longer alive. If you or a loved one were hurt as a result of this matter in any sort of way, you might have a valid claim for compensation against Epstein or the at-fault party.
Because the situation has become so publicly known and wrought with conspiracy, your claim will likely entail substantial investigation and legal work. Fortunately, Bradley Law Personal Injury Lawyers is more than up to the task.

An Overview of Jeffrey Epstein
Jeffrey Epstein lived from January 20, 1953, to August 10, 2019. He worked in the finance sector, initially working for Bear Sterns and ultimately creating his own firm. The immense wealth he gained during this time allowed him to form an elite circle of contacts, which he would subsequently exploit.
Mr. Epstein was arrested on two separate occasions for sex crimes. In 2008, he pleaded guilty to charges of procuring a child for prostitution and for soliciting a prostitute. He served 13 months in custody for those offenses, but his plea deal was highly controversial considering the number of victims that were identified as part of the case.
In July 2019, Epstein was arrested again, this time on federal charges of the sex trafficking of minors. Mr. Epstein was found dead in his jail cell on August 10, 2019, due to an apparent suicide. His death was – and remains – highly controversial.
Lawsuits Against Jeffrey Epstein
Many lawsuits are still pending regarding the situation, either related to Mr. Epstein directly or to people who were closely connected with him. Importantly, civil cases may continue to proceed even though Epstein is deceased.
In addition, a victim’s compensation fund was established to help those who were harmed by Mr. Epstein. If you received money from that fund, you won’t be able to file a lawsuit to obtain additional money.
However, if you did not pursue compensation from that fund, you might still have a claim against Mr. Epstein’s estate. The statute of limitations in Missouri for personal injury ranges from two to five years (or longer), depending on the exact type of injuries suffered and the age of the victim at the time.
We recommend promptly reaching out to our legal team with any questions you might have about pursuing compensation for your injuries, considering this complexity.
What Damages Can I Receive from My Jeffrey Epstein Victimization Case?
People who were victimized by Jeffrey Epstein can aim to receive economic, non-economic, and possibly punitive damages.
Economic damages represent things like:
- Medical bills
- Decreased earning capacity
- Lost wages
- Out-of-pocket expenses
Non-economic damages make up for losses such as:
- Loss of consortium
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- PTSD, depression, anxiety
Punitive damages are more likely to be awarded in this type of case than in most personal injury cases, considering the heinous behavior involved. However, they are still not a guarantee, as the burden of proof is “clear and convincing evidence” in Missouri rather than the “beyond a preponderance of the evidence” standard for the other two types of damages.
