Being threatened (assault) or attacked (battery) by another person is a terrible experience. You may have sustained very serious, even life-altering injuries after being:
- raped; or
- otherwise attacked by callous individuals.
Beyond the physical injuries sustained as a result of assault and battery, there are often long-lasting emotional effects that you must live with, such as increased anxiety, decreased enjoyment of life and, potentially, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Even if your attacker is convicted and sent to jail, you are left to deal with lingering physical and emotional pain. There is also the stress of paying off medical bills at a time when you may be temporarily or permanently unable to work.
One way to seek justice is to file a personal injury claim against the person who attacked you. If you win, you can be compensated for:
- your past medical expenses (associated with this attack);
- your future medical expenses;
- lost wages; and/or
- pain and suffering.
It will not undo the pain of your experience, but it will ease your recovery by paying your medical bills and providing compensation for your suffering.
Unfortunately, this type of suit can be difficult to win. The problem is that the damages awarded must come from either insurance or the attacker’s personal assets. Many insurance companies do not cover damages that were deliberately done by the policy holder, although there are exceptions to this. Most likely, you will have to receive your damages from the attacker’s own account, which means you may not be able to collect the awarded compensation.
