Most people understand that assault charges may be brought against someone who has harmed you, and these criminal charges are handled by a prosecutor. While a person convicted of assault may face criminal penalties, they may not necessarily have to compensate you in any way.
What people don’t realize is that the victim of an assault may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. Dale Dahlin is able to handle personal injury claims resulting from an assault, which is also known as an intentional tort. If you are the victim of such an act, Mr. Dahlin may be able to help you receive payment for:
- Medical bills resulting from your injuries
- Lost wages if you were unable to work due to the assault
- Emotional distress if the assault has caused you emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering if the assault led to physical pain and/or injury
