ASSAULT & BATTERY ACCIDENT

 

AN ASSAULT & BATTERY CASE

An assault and battery injury case involves someone physically harming your body intentionally or negligently.  An example is where a person punches you in the face.  It includes sexual battery or any other unwanted contact that results in mental or physical injuries.

5 THINGS YOU SHOULD AFTER AN ASSAULT & BATTERY INJURY

  • Stay calm and avoid further conflict with the perpetrator.  Should you still feel threaten by the perpetrator but are unable to call 911, use reasonable force to defend yourself and distance yourself from the perpetrator. Call out for help to get the attention of the public.

  • Call 911 and report the incident. If you are injured, let the operator know the extent of your injuries​​. Ask for the police report (or NCIC) number so you can request it immediately when made available.

  • Take pictures or videos.  Almost everyone has a camera on their cell phones these days. Use it. Take as many pictures as you can of the scene of the accident and anything related to it. Don't question what is relevant or not at the scene, just take as much photos or video as you can to record the event, especially of any visible injuries to your body. Let an experienced attorney determinate what photos and/or videos will be relevant to your case.

  • Do not make any admissions of fault.  Record only facts and state only facts of the incident if you must.

 

  • ​Contact an experienced personal injury attorney before contacting the insurance companies or other party​.

5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE A LAWYER FOR AN INJURY ACCIDENT

  • Insurance companies don't want to pay you a fair share for your injuries and loss. Insurance companies are in the business to make money, not give it away.  Don't mistake their niceness on the telephone for fairness. Insurance companies are not on your side when it comes to accidents and losses.

  • Insurance companies don't want to help you. They will low ball you and work against you at every point of your case. Have you ever experienced the other driver's insurance company calling you right after an accident for a recorded statement? They aggressively ask you numerous vague and over broad questions, then use your responses against you later when its suits them. We strongly recommend that you have legal representation prior to giving your statement to an insurance company, even your own.

  • Insurance companies don't respect you. They will make every effort to use the law to their advantage only. For example, they may tell you that you must repair your car at "their" preferred  body shop. That is a lie. In California, you have the right to repair your car at "your" preferred body shop.  When an experienced personal injury attorney is representing you, insurance companies limit their game play to a minimum.

  • Insurances companies will often times offer more money for cases involving an attorney than what they would have offered without one.

  • An experienced personal injury attorney will handle your case from start to finish, reducing or eliminating the stress and anxiety typically experienced after an accident of any type. The emotional freedom may offer you luxury of getting back on your feet that much sooner and smoother.  And, best of all you don't have to pay for attorney's fees until your case is won.
