Assault and Battery Injuries

Most personal injury cases involve accidents or incidents caused by negligence, carelessness, or recklessness. In these cases, the person who caused harm was generally not guilty of an intentional desire to hurt others. In some cases, however, intentional misconduct against another person can form the basis of a personal injury claim in which the harmed person seeks damages. Assault and battery crimes are an example of this.

At Hofland & Tomsheck, our attorney team handles all types of personal injury case scenarios, including those involving deliberate assault and battery. If you or a loved one has been victimized by someone in this way, you may be able to seek legal compensation for your damages, including your medical expenses, loss of earnings, pain, suffering, and similar losses. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can review your case, advise you of legal rights, and explain your options in pursuing justice.

Assault and Battery Injuries in Las Vegas

Under Nevada law, assault is defined as the use of physical force against another or placing that person in fear of immediate bodily harm. Battery is defined as willful and unlawful physical force or violence committed against another. Examples of assault include threatening someone with your fists, a gun, or some other object. Battery can include beating up a person, a pistol whipping, or striking someone with any kind of object that results in physical damage. Assault and battery crimes can result in:

  • Broken bones
  • Head trauma
  • Comas
  • Internal injuries
  • Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries

A conviction of assault or battery can lead to serious penalties in the Nevada criminal justice system. The offender also may face charges in civil court through a personal injury claim by a victim who has been seriously injured. Such an injury could require medical treatment or hospitalization, result in the victim being unable to work, and create emotional trauma as well as physical suffering for which monetary compensation is deserved.
