In legal terms, assault is a very specific crime. It covers intent and capability to cause bodily harm. If you have experienced assault, you can make a claim for personal injury. The process can seem tedious and challenging, but with the right help, it’s simple. And you can find the right help at Paul du Plessis Attorneys. We have over 18 years of experience in pursuing claims that range from medical negligence to the road accident fund. We will walk you through the entire process.
Verify your claim
Assault victims will often have some form of physical injury. This injury will have to be treated at a hospital, so the first step is to get your medical documents in order. You will also need to press assault charges at your local police station. Those documents will be used as part of your claim, so if you haven’t filed charges yet, our lawyers will help you to do so. It’s important to show the exact effect that the assault has had on your quality of life. This could include taking time off work, loss of income, hospital bills, and changes in lifestyle.
Take it to the courts
Armed with affidavits and other legal documents, our attorneys will approach the relevant authorities and argue out your case. Part of our process involves working out how much compensation you can ask for. We will speak to various medical experts to find out the cost of your medical damages. We will also tabulate the cost to your income. Along the way, there will be expenses, but you don’t have to worry. We will cover all charges and fees out of pocket, and we will only recoup these fees if you win your case. We guarantee that we will handle your case with professionalism, compassion, and efficiency. We understand that suffering from assault can be traumatic and we will show you the care and sensitivity that you need. Contact us today for legal assistance and counsel. We will be at your side every step of the way.
