Long Island Assault Victim Attorney
Guidance Through Your Personal Injury Case
When an individual causes bodily harm through an assault, a civil lawsuit
filed to recover damages could be possible. The assault was an illegal
act, and as such may open the door to punitive damages above and beyond
the other types of damages included in the claim. When criminal wrongdoing
results in injury, the case demands the support of a Long Island personal
injury lawyer. At The Odierno Law Firm, P.C., our large legal team has
extensive experience in filing lawsuits and claims in cases in which our
client has suffered from an assault and sustained injuries and other damages.
We will evaluate your situation and advise you on what to expect in the process ahead.
Filing Your Injury Claim on Long Island
Those who choose to use violence against another are stepping outside the
restrictions of the law. An assault can cause not only severe injuries,
the emotional damage can be extensive. When the attacker is a family member
or former spouse or relationship partner, the situation can be even more
distressing and frightening. These cases come about in a variety of circumstances,
and many cases take place in fights in which alcohol played a starring
role. Some of the common circumstances that have led to severe and disabling injuries:
- Bar fights
- Family-involved assaults
Sometimes, it is not possible to get a criminal conviction in court against
the attacker. A civil suit has different guidelines for establishing fault,
and it is often possible to obtain some justice in a civil court when
it could not be done in a criminal court. When one person takes physical
action against another, the injuries can be very serious.
In the most tragic cases, the victim dies after an attack. Whether your
case is an injury case or a
wrongful death case, our legal team will carefully review all the evidence, statements
and medical records as well as interview the injured if possible, and
file a claim that truly reflects all the damages suffered.
