Coral Gables Physical Abuse

If you have been battered or physically assaulted in Coral Gables or your community, you may assume that you have no legal claim that can help you seek compensation. After all, when the police arrive after a crime they are often concerned with pursuing criminal charges against the perpetrator. However, in addition to criminal charges you may be able to file civil charges against the assailant or against the property owner if the property owner was negligent in providing a safe area. If you were attacked in a parking lot, garage, or other property owned by a property owner, you will want to ask questions and speak to a personal injury attorney to find out whether you have a claim. Seeking a claim in these cases can help you get compensation to pay for any injuries you have sustained.

Injuries That Occur from Physical Assault

Physical assault and battery are not only terrifying, but these actions can also result in severe and life-changing injury. People who have been the victims of battery sometimes sustain injuries such as:

  • Fractures
  • Internal injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Gunshot or knife wounds
  • Internal injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Head trauma
  • Internal injuries

Some injuries can take months or years to heal, resulting in significant expenses as well as pain and suffering for the patient. In some cases, the injuries from an assault can affect your health and finances for the rest of your life. If as a result of your injuries you are permanently in a wheelchair, for example, you may be more subject to cardiac issues and pneumonia as well as other complications due to your mobility issues. You can therefore expect to pay more for medical costs and medical insurance for a lifetime.

It is important to consult with a personal injury attorney in Coral Gables or your community quickly after your injury. You may have legal options that can help you with the costs of your injuries.
