Battery can lead to head injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, and many other types of injuries. In severe cases, battery can even lead to permanent or even fatal injuries.
If you have been the victim of battery, you can always contact Flaxman Law Group for a free case evaluation. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may have a premises liability claim in Hollywood or your community or you may have another personal injury claim that allows you to seek justice and compensation in your situation.Holding Perpetrators Accountable
Perpetrators of battery know that they are committing a crime and that they are putting their victim’s life at risk. They should be held fully accountable for their actions as should any liable party who has allowed the battery to occur in the first place.
The criminal justice system makes assault and battery a crime and you can press charges against the person or persons who have harmed you. Unfortunately, the criminal process is a long one and in the end perpetrators may not get a long sentence that reflects the pain and suffering they have caused. Even if an abuser is found guilty, the survivor of the abuse or assault will still face the pain and suffering and the medical bills that the abuse has resulted in. Even in cases where the perpetrator is never found, a civil trial allows survivors to seek compensation and justice.
For these reasons, many survivors of battery choose to pursue a civil claim as well. A personal injury claim gives survivors another chance to seek justice – no matter what the findings in the criminal trial. A legal claim also allows abuse survivors to pursue compensation to pay for medical bills, counseling, property damage, pain and suffering, and other damages.Seeking Help After an Assault
If you have survived assault or battery, you deserve all the resources and assistance you can get. As you start to heal from your injuries, you may face income loss, medical bills, and other expenses as well as challenges to your recovery. If your injuries were caused by someone's negligence or recklessness, you deserve to pursue those parties in order to secure compensation on your behalf. A personal injury attorney in Hollywood or your community can help you pursue all legal avenues for pursuing compensation so that you do not have to pay for all of your costs out-of-pocket.
