Hollywood Physical Abuse

Unfortunately, physical assault and battery is all too common in nursing homes, families, public places, schools, and other environments. Battery and physical assault can take place almost anywhere. Although in many cases victims know their attackers, almost anyone can be assaulted by a complete stranger.

Many people assume that in these cases, they can only file criminal charges. This is not the case. Premises liability cases in Hollywood are commonly the result of physical assault and battery situations. Pursuing legal claims against negligent parties in these cases allows victims to get some justice and allows them to get compensation to pay for medical care and counseling. If you have been the victim of physical assault and battery, contact Flaxman Law Group to find out more about the Florida laws that protect you. Your consultation is free of charge and comes with no obligation.

Physical Assault And Battery In Hollywood

Physical assault and battery can involve anyone punching, hitting, striking, or otherwise bodily harming another person. In these cases, the victim may know their attacker or the attacker may never be found because he or she runs away before police and other authorities arrive on the scene. The initial reaction of the victim is to get medical assistance for their injuries. Physical assault and battery can lead to a number of serious injuries, including:

  • Disfigurement
  • Fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Bruises
  • Scratches
  • Abrasions
  • Eye injuries

It is important to get medical assistance for all of these injuries so that they heal as fully as possible.

Getting Help After a Physical Assault

It is also important to get legal advice about your situation. In cases of physical assault and battery, police will often get involved. Police may ask a victim whether he or she wants to press charges. While pursuing a criminal case against the perpetrator is effective in getting justice, it does not necessarily provide all the assistance that a victim may need.

The truth is, after an assault or battery, the victim may face many costs. He or she:
  • May have high medical bills while dealing with the injuries caused by the attack
  • May need to take time away from work while healing from the assault and may lose income as a result
  • May need counseling or other types of care in order to deal with the emotional impact of the assault
  • May have suffered property damage as a result of the assault and may need to replace items that were lost or broken during the attack

All of these can add up to substantial amounts of money. Pursuing a personal injury claim in Hollywood is one option available to many victims. Depending on the specifics of the case, victims may have a premises liability case or may have another type of personal injury claim if negligence or recklessness contributed to the attack. Even if the attacker is never found, a victim may have legal options for pursuing justice in the case.
