About Assault & Battery Cases
Can you get compensated for your medical bills, lost time at work, and pain and suffering if assaulted?
In a criminal case, you need proof “beyond a reasonable” doubt that the accused party committed the crime. In a civil case, you only need a “preponderance of the evidence” to win your personal injury claim.
In OJ Simpson’s case, the defense was able to put just enough doubt in the minds of the jury to get him acquitted of criminal charges. However, he lost the civil trial, and had to pay millions of dollars in damages. So the answer is yes, you can.
What if the person you want to sue for assault or battery injuries doesn’t have any money?
Say that burly fellow from before turned out to have basically no assets at all. Likely an extreme alcoholic, he worked part-time as a bouncer, and it was clear most of his money went to buying alcohol and paying off tickets and fines.
And if he goes to jail for his actions, more fines will wipe out what money he does have. So practically speaking, you may not be able to recover money from that person.
However, you may be able to:
- Sue the location where the fight happened, as it may have served too much alcohol to the assailant
- Sue the attacker’s employer if the assault happened during the course and scope of the attacker’s job duties – and the employer had knowledge the employee had a history of violence, for example.
Even if you think you can’t win any money, it’s worth your time to at least check. You shouldn’t have to pay for expenses you didn’t accumulate. Our Dallas assault injury lawyers offer free consultations, and you have nothing to lose by finding out.
