May 8, 2019

Category:

If you or a loved one were the victim of an assault, we understand the physical and emotional repercussions you are facing. We would like to help you cope with this situation.

If you are looking to claim damages for your pain and suffering, you should take the time to find an experienced personal injury attorney who will stand up to defend you. These are often times complex cases and there may be multiple parties who could be held liable.

One party is the assailant. While he or she may be facing criminal charges, there is also the possibility of claiming civil damages against them, similar to what happened to OJ Simpson.

Another party may be the owner of the property where the assault took place. Sometimes, property owners are liable if there was inadequate security or safety measures were not followed. Some common places that may be liable in the case of an assault are:

  • Nightclubs
  • Bars
  • Movie Theatres
  • Shopping Malls
  • Colleges and Universities

For example, if a person was assaulted at a nightclub and the security guard was not on duty or did not intervene to stop the assault, this may be grounds to hold the nightclub liable for damages.
