Assault and Battery

When someone engages in physical violence towards another person, he or she is acting against the law. Most actions that physically harm another person are considered to be crimes and are thus tried in criminal courts.

But justice is not always served and even if it is, there is much more to being the victim of a physical crime than just seeking justice in the form of repercussions to the offender. To discover more about the process of pursuing a personal injury lawsuit after being the victim of assault and / or battery, contact the Sheboygan personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at (920) 459-8000.

Why Seek a Civil Assault and Battery Lawsuit

As previously mentioned, many things contribute to the ongoing pain of a person who was the victim of assault and / or battery. Reasons for going beyond criminal proceedings include:

  • Monetary damages–the victim is in no way reimbursed for damages when an offender is put in jail after a criminal case. Civil suits can bring monetary damages for victims. These damages can help pay for any medical bills related to the incident.
  • Pain and suffering–assault and battery can lead to severe emotional and mental injuries. Physical assault hurts in many more areas than just the body. A lawsuit can help victims afford psychiatric treatment or therapy because of psychological damage resulting from the incident.
