Assault

Dothan Assault Injury Attorneys

Representing Survivors of Criminal Violence

Victims of assault typically believe that the only remedy is through the criminal justice system. However, assault victims are often unaware of their right to sue their perpetrator for the injuries suffered as a result of the violent incident.

If you or a loved one is a victim of an assault crime, our Alabama crime victim attorneys at Morris, Cary, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC can recover your entitled compensation on your behalf. With an exceptional track record of success, including winning one of the largest jury verdicts in Alabama history, we understand what it takes to obtain the damages you are owed. Do not hesitate to get experienced and skilled legal representation on your side immediately.

Recovering Damages as an Assault Victim

A physical attack, or even a verbal threat of physical harm, is considered assault. In order to succeed in an assault-related civil claim, you must prove the criminal offense occurred.

A person can be held liable for assault in civil court if the following factors apply:

  • The defendant behaved in a manner which put the plaintiff in a state of reasonable fear for their own safety
  • The defendant intended to place the plaintiff in a state of reasonable fear for their own safety

While the prosecutor in a criminal case must show that the defendant is guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt”, a victim must show a “preponderance of evidence”—which is a lower threshold for the burden of proof. Victims can recover both compensatory and punitive damages in a civil lawsuit against assault.
