Palm Beach County Civil Assault and Battery
The victims of assault and battery incur so much more than physical injuries. Long after their wounds heal, they may still find themselves struggling with the financial repercussions of the attack. The emotional impact of being targeted can also be hard to overcome, which is why many victims of violent crime seek therapy.
Fortunately, those who have suffered as the result of assault and/or battery have the right to pursue compensation for all the damages they incur. If you were hurt in a physical altercation through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to funds for medical bills, lost wages, and non-economic damages like pain and suffering.
To determine the most strategic way to proceed, contact Donaldson & Weston. We have the knowledge, experience, and resources to help you pursue the compensation you deserve. Call 772-266-5555 to schedule a free case evaluation with an assault and battery injury lawyer in Palm Beach County.How Much is My Assault and Battery Case Worth?
Being threatened or getting attacked-or both-is traumatizing. As a result, victims of assault and battery are not always eager to file a personal injury claim against the offender. Instead of corresponding with their transgressor's legal team for weeks or even months to come, many would rather spend their time trying to move on from the incident. When the damages are significant, though, forgoing a claim could prove costly.
If you're wondering whether filing a claim is worth your time, contact Donaldson & Weston. Although no law firm can guarantee a specific outcome, our seasoned assault and battery injury attorneys can assess any evidence you have gathered, perform an investigation, and estimate what a fair settlement might look like. We will consider several factors including:
- Our past experience resolving similar claims;
- The severity of your injuries;
- The ways in which the injuries have impacted you and your loved ones;
- Whether multiple parties are liable; and
- Whether you might be entitled to punitive damages.
If you have adequate health insurance, it may be tempting to skip the hassle of filing a claim altogether. But it is wise to estimate the potential value of your claim before committing to this route because the figure may surprise you.
At the end of the day, medical expenses might be just a fraction of the damages you will incur in the aftermath of the attack. Your insurer might cover all doctor's visits, but what about lost income, home care, domestic help, and non-economic damages like pain and suffering?Call 772-266-5555 to Discuss Your Case with a Palm Beach County Assault and Battery Injury Attorney
