Long Island Assault Lawyer
An assault occurs when someone intentionally strikes another person causing an injury. Unfortunately, assaults are all too common in our society. And, in many cases there is a relationship between the victim and their assailant. In New York State, assault is a crime and carries a possible jail sentence. But, for the victim of an assault, the criminal punishment of the perpetrator may not be enough to feel as though justice has been done.
In many cases, a person that suffers an assault may have outstanding medical bills, lost wages and emotional trauma. If you’ve been the victim of an assault, you have the option of pursuing compensation from the responsible party or parties. However, New York has a limited Statute of Limitations. The Statute of Limitations for assault is generally one year from the date of the assault. But, in certain instances there can be an even shorter period of time to make a claim. So, it is important to investigate as soon as possible.
In some instances there may be additional parties responsible for your injuries. If the assault happens on someone else’s property or business, that party may also be at fault for your injuries for failing to properly ensure your safety.
