Port St. Lucie Civil Assault and Battery

Teenager If someone threatens you with physical violence or goes so far as to cause you harm, you may have the right to file a personal injury claim. In such a scenario, your first thought may be to seek help from local law enforcement personnel. Although police can certainly facilitate any criminal proceedings, they cannot assist with your civil case. For guidance during the personal injury claims process, it is wise to seek counsel from an assault and battery injury attorney.

At Donaldson & Weston, we have helped hundreds of clients in wrongful death and personal injury cases including those involving assault and/or battery. Call 772-266-5555 to schedule a free case evaluation with one of our knowledgeable Port St. Lucie assault and battery injury lawyers.

Damages That May Be Recoverable in Florida Assault and Battery Injury Claims

Regardless of whether the liable party’s actions were committed with malicious intent or mere negligence, the potentially recoverable damages are almost entirely the same. In successful personal injury cases involving assault and/or battery, for example, the following damages might be available:

  • Medical Expenses: All costs associated with diagnosing and treating any injuries that resulted from the incident in question should be considered during the settlement negotiations. This includes expenses for ongoing or anticipated medical care in the months and years to come.
  • Lost Income: People who are healing from serious injuries may have to miss a considerable amount of work. Fortunately, their lost wages might be recoverable. If you are unable to return to work at all, you may also recover compensation for lost income and benefits, as well as loss of earning capacity.
  • Property Damage: If any of your property was damaged during the incident, the cost of repairing or replacing it may be recoverable.
  • Pain and Suffering: Non-economic damages like physical pain and mental anguish are potentially recoverable damages. Calculating and then justifying a fair amount for such damages is challenging, but a seasoned attorney can help.
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life: If the injuries caused scarring, disfigurement, or a disability, you may be able to pursue compensation for loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Punitive Damages: Punitive damages are rarely awarded, but they might apply in claims involving assault and battery. There is no cap on punitive damages awards in tort cases involving intent to harm.

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
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.

★★★★★
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.
