Jensen Beach Civil Assault and Battery

Fist in Red Background Getting hurt in a violent physical altercation can be traumatic. It can also be costly. If you are forced to miss several weeks—or months—of work in order to recover, for example, you could lose out on thousands of dollars in lost wages alone.

Then there are medical expenses to consider. Even with adequate health insurance, you may have to cover copays, prescription medication, physical therapy, psychological counseling, home care, and other costs.

Fortunately, you may be entitled to compensation for all such damages. By filing a personal injury claim separate from any pending criminal proceedings, you may be able to secure a settlement or verdict that covers all the costs you incur as a result of the incident.

To determine if you have grounds for a claim, contact Donaldson & Weston. We have helped hundreds of clients recover the funds they needed to make their lives whole again.

From the moment you call our office to the day your case is resolved, you can expect the utmost professionalism, compassion, and respect from our team. Call 772-266-5555 to schedule a free case evaluation with an assault and battery injury lawyer in Jensen Beach.

How to Calculate Damages in Florida Assault and Battery Injury Cases

If you want to recover compensation for all the costs associated with treating your injuries, it is essential to track them diligently. By saving all records, receipts, invoices, and statements, your attorney will be equipped to estimate a reasonable figure for the total economic damages. This will provide a starting point for the settlement negotiations.

Critical documents that are worth saving include:

  • Medical records;
  • Health insurance statements;
  • Pharmacy receipts;
  • Invoices for domestic help or home care;
  • Quotes for repairing any damaged property;
  • Receipts for medical equipment; and
  • Paystubs or income statements detailing missed work.

While these records will help your lawyer calculate the total economic damages, you may also be entitled to compensation for non-economic damages like pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, scarring, disfigurement, and disability.

Assault and battery injury lawyers use various formulas to estimate a fair amount for such damages. Below are a few types of evidence that may help your attorney perform the calculation:

  • Photographs of any visible wounds;
  • Statements from medical experts regarding your prognosis;
  • Journal entries detailing the recovery process; and
  • Statements from loved ones detailing the ways in which the incident has affected them.

★★★★★
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.

I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
★★★★★
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
