No one has a right to inflict bodily harm on you. When you’ve been a victim of assault by another individual, you reach out to the police or other person of authority for assistance.

But what if the police themselves are responsible for your injuries?

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, approximately 800,000 aggravated assault cases are opened each year in the United States. Too often these are perpetrated by figures of authority such as the police, sheriffs, other law enforcement officers, private security, or bouncers.

At Bergener Mirejovsky, we refuse to let figures of authority get away with abusing their power. Our team of experienced personal injury attorneys have the experience you want on your side to win you the fairest possible settlement from the insurance company.

What Makes An Assault Claim?

To pursue an injury claim due to assault, it’s important to first understand what defines an assault and other elements of your case. This includes whether your injuries were caused by excessive force, involved physical or emotional trauma, and was committed with purposeful intent.

  • Assault is any reasonably believable threat of harmful or offensive contact with you by another individual.
  • Excessive force is any overly aggressive tactic on the part of law enforcement or other security officer that results in your physical injuries or emotional anguish.
  • Intentional infliction of emotional distress (IIED) refers to behavior toward you that is so “extreme and outrageous” it causes you severe distress.
  • Battery or aggravated assault is when another individual inflicts physical or offensive contact upon your person.

Understanding all the facets of your assault case and injuries is the first step toward ensuring you receive a fair settlement which helps you get better. With Bergener Mirejovsky, your assault case gets the attention and guidance it needs to move forward.

What Steps Should I Take After An Assault?

By its very definition, being assaulted means you have suffered injuries. Put yourself first and seek immediate medical attention as soon as possible to increase your chances of a full recovery. Other steps you can take to strengthen your assault accident claim include:

  • Contact the police so they can fill out a police report that can be obtained as evidence of your assault.
  • Take pictures of the accident and any injuries you may have sustained, if the situation allows.
  • Exchange contact information with witnesses who can provide corroborating accounts of how your assault took place and help maximize a settlement offer.
  • Consistent medical treatment and follow-up doctor visits provide the treatment your injuries need to heal, and establish a record of your gradual recovery.
  • Document your injuries in a diary and with photographs, to provide further account of the harm caused against you.
