Understanding Assault and Your Rights as a Victim

Assault is a crime where the victim fears for their safety due to threats of danger or attempts of harm by another individual. This may be accompanied by the crime of battery which is classified as harmful, non-consensual physical contact.

Commonly, these two occur together and are referred to as “assault,” even if both crimes occur. Even if you file criminal charges against the person who attacked you, you may not receive any financial compensation for your injury. To see financial compensation, you’ll need to file a civil lawsuit as well.

Who Can File a Lawsuit for Assault?

Children, the elderly, and women are some of the many people who are at risk for assault – but anyone can be the victim of assault. Regardless of age or sex, you can seek compensation if you suffered harm at the hands of another person.

In some cases, victims are assaulted by people they know, such as a neighbor, an acquaintance, or even a family member. Many assaults are hate crimes against certain populations, including homeless, homosexual, and transgender people.

Assault comes in many forms, including:

  • Sexual – Forcing another person to engage in unwanted sexual acts, either by threats or by force
  • Verbal – Threats of violence
  • Physical – Physical attack and infliction of pain

Recent Case Result:

  • $2,375,000 Recovered: Sexual assault case in which the defendant was a restaurant owner and employee.

Assault & Premises Liability

Property owners and operators are legally responsible for the maintenance of their property and should provide all buildings with proper lighting and working locks. If an act of assault occurs on another person's property due to negligent maintenance the owner may be held liable for your injuries. If you were assaulted while on the property of another person, you may have a premises liability case.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of an assault resulting in a physical injury, please contact an experienced Campbel assault victim attorney at Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP at (800) 900-0863.
