Understanding Civil Assault

Assault victims will typically see their attackers charged with criminal assault, resulting in a trial in which they will be tried and likely convicted under the criminal statutes they have violated. While the criminal justice system will penalize the perpetrator of the crime, it does little to compensate the victim for damages, such as medical bills to treat any injuries. A criminal conviction does not preclude civil action against your assailant, however, and you are free to pursue a lawsuit that will help you offset the financial losses the encounter caused you.

At LaMarca Law Group, P.C., an experienced Des Moines personal injury attorney can defend your rights and help you obtain the full compensation you deserve for medical expenses and any other losses associated with an assault. To learn more about your legal options in civil court, contact our offices today at 877-327-2600.

Civil Penalties for Assault

While criminal charges typically result in fines and jail time to penalize those convicted of crimes, civil court allows the injured party to pursue compensation for their losses following an incident in which the negligent or criminal actions of another party cause them harm. A skilled attorney can help you recover the following types of damages after an assault:

  • Direct damages for medical expenses associated with the assault
  • Lost wages due to time away from work recovering from your injuries
  • Punitive damages meant to punish the assailant when intent to harm was present

Do not let the criminal actions of another party put you in financial distress; instead, seek legal representation in order to pursue civil damages following an assault.
