Assault, battery, sexual assault, false imprisonment, or other deliberate acts we associate with criminal consequences, however, you can pursue a claim against your assailant in civil court as well. Double jeopardy does not apply here. We are your next step after the police (whether there was an arrest or not). We seek to hold the responsible parties accountable for your bodily and emotional injuries. If successful, they may be on the hook for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
What is an Intentional Act?
An intentional act is deliberate conduct, where the assailant’s actions are meant to cause harm. Their conduct goes beyond a mistake or an accident. Further, if that conduct takes place on another’s property or at their business, in certain circumstances they can be held liable too.
Long Island Cases
The majority of assault cases on Long Island are against bars and restaurants. Business establishments frequently have insurance, making it more likely to collect a potential judgment. Moreover, typically, we only need to prove a business or property owner was negligent (or irresponsible), and do not need to show that the owners acted intentionally. Potential defendants are not limited to businesses and can include individual people, security companies, churches, schools, and colleges.
Jennifer did such an outstanding job with my case and I could not be happier with the results she accomplished. Such a gem to work with and a real powerhouse to the law industry!! Amazing job, no doubt beyond 5 stars! Thank you Jen
She is an amazing lawyer, competent, strong willed, knowledgable and has that it factor that a lot of lawyers don’t have. I trust her with everything. I’d highly recommend her. You should see her in a courtroom.
Jennifer handled my needs over the phone in a professional matter. She is punctual, responsive, and there for you (which is rare in attorneys nowadays). Highly recommend!!!
You will not find a more intelligent, passionate and dedicated lawyer. I have had the pleasure of knowing Jennifer since she was a first year law student and even then she stood out as having an ability that exceeded many veteran lawyers. She may be young but she has a ton of experience and has worked under several legends of the profession. In short you could not make a better choice for an attorney.
