So you have been assaulted, what next?
Well, first things first, if you are the victim of an assault, seek medical attention. It is important to your health, it is important to a criminal prosecution, and it is important to a persona injury claim against the person who assaulted you.
After you have been treated, reach out to a personal injury attorney to talk about your case. There are many factors that will determine whether you have a good case or not. Things an attorney will need to know to evaluate your case include:
– how serious were your injuries?
– how much treatment have you had/ how much will you need?
– where and how did the accident occur?
This is not a comprehensive list of things that an attorney will need to know, rather will be a starting point for an attorney to know what to ask next.
Press criminal charges. One tool personal injury lawyers can use in their case against the person who assaulted you is a criminal conviction related to the assault. If you feel you are injures enough to warrant a personal injury case, then the injuries should likely warrant a criminal complaint as well.
