Palm Beach Gardens Civil Assault and Battery Lawyers

Although most personal injury claims involve accidental scenarios like motor-vehicle collisions, intentional actions that cause harm can also result in civil suits. For example, victims of assault and battery are often entitled to compensation for the damages they incur. In order to recover a fair settlement, though, claimants must build a strong case against the aggressor.

If you were hurt in a physical altercation through no fault of your own, the legal team at Donaldson & Weston can handle the logistics of your case so you can focus on your health. We have recovered several multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients.

What Will an Assault and Battery Injury Lawyer Do for Me?

Although it is possible to file a civil suit against a violent attacker on your own, it is wise to seek legal counsel before commencing the proceedings. Navigating the personal injury claims process is challenging, and you already have enough to worry about in the aftermath of the incident.

If you turn to Donaldson & Weston for guidance, you can expect our legal team to:

  • Gather Evidence: Strong personal injury claims require sufficient evidence of both liability and damages. A seasoned attorney will be able to gather evidence that is difficult to obtain by applying legal pressure.

  • Track Damages: Your lawyer will track both the economic and non-economic damages you incur as a result of the attack. Doing so will provide a starting point for the negotiations. It will also ensure you have adequate proof of damages if the opposing party disputes your claim.

  • Handle All Correspondence: Your attorney will handle all correspondence with the opposing party. Whether you end up filing the claim directly against the offender, against the facility where the incident occurred, or both, you will not have to worry about jeopardizing your case by making a compromising statement or falling victim to a manipulative negotiation tactic.

  • Pursue Every Dollar You Deserve: Most personal injury claims do not warrant a punitive award. In cases involving assault and battery, though, injured parties might be entitled to punitive damages. When you turn to Donaldson & Weston for legal counsel, you can be sure we will not leave any money on the table. In addition to seeking punitive awards when warranted, we also help clients pursue settlements and verdicts that are large enough to cover all non-economic damages and future losses.
