The unlawful, harmful, or offensive touching of a person by another person may constitute assault if the touching results in either physical or psychological injuries. If the assaulted person does sustain an injury as a result of an assault by another, the injured party may have a right to be compensated for their injury. The key is that the injury must be legitimate, either medically or psychologically. Deciding whether an assault has actually occurred and whether the assault caused the injury is crucial.
If an assault has indeed occurred, you may be able to recover money damages for medical expenses, lost earnings, psychological damage, disability, and pain and suffering. Most cases involving assaults must be brought within two years of the date of the assault. While there are exceptions to this general rule, it is important to have your case fully investigated as soon as possible. Delay in investigating these cases can hinder the ability to prove your case. Therefore, you should immediately seek the advice of an attorney.
