Loxahatchee Civil Assault and Battery Lawyers

If someone attacks you at a bar, hotel, or nightclub, calling the police should be your first course of action. Even if security guards are on the scene almost immediately, their primary job is to protect the property owner’s best interests. Regardless of how compassionate or helpful they are, victims of assault and battery should always call law enforcement personnel for two reasons.

First, police may be able to find and arrest the perpetrator. Second, they will draft an official report that will serve as an unbiased account of what happened. While an incident report drafted by staff on the premises can prove helpful, it may not be entirely neutral.

If you sustained injuries in a violent attack, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and other damages. The assault and battery injury attorneys at Donaldson & Weston can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

We will conduct a thorough investigation to identify all potentially liable parties and then help you determine the most strategic way to proceed based on the facts of your case. Depending on the circumstances, you may have grounds for a claim against both the perpetrator and the property owner.
