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.
