Pembroke Pines Physical Abuse
After an assault or battery in Pembroke Pines or your community, there may be criminal charges filed against the perpetrator. These will usually be prosecuted by the District Attorney's office in a criminal court. If the perpetrator is found guilty, he or she may face jail time, fines, or other punishment. However, even if the perpetrator is found guilty the person who has been injured will not receive compensation or other support from the criminal court. For this to happen, the victim must file a civil claim against the perpetrator and any other liable parties.

One of the challenges in assault and battery civil cases is that you may be facing an individual perpetrator who is not insured and does not have significant assets to cover the considerable medical bills and other costs you may be facing. In these cases, it is important to find all liable parties in order to find all possible avenues for compensation.
For example, even if the assault and battery was committed by a perpetrator who does not have insurance, the assault or battery may only have been possible due to a property owner’s negligence in creating a safe environment. For example, if the assault and battery occurred at a bar without adequate security or crowd control measures, you may have a claim against the bar owner. Speaking with a personal injury attorney in Pembroke Pines or your community can help you review what your legal options are after an attack and can help you find out whether there may be liable parties in your case.Recovery Damages After Physical Assault and Battery
