Assault and Battery Victims

This Fort Lauderdale Assault and Battery Victim Attorney Helps the Injured

Anthony Quackenbush is a Fort Lauderdale Assault & Battery Victim Lawyer who helps people who have been hurt as the result of crimes. An assault and battery is a crime. It can be a misdemeanor or it can be a felony in certain circumstances (for example, if it was committed with a deadly weapon). In either case, it can lead to serious injuries.

A battery is defined as an “unwanted touching.” This can vary from a light-touch to a push, shove, slap or punch. If the touching is not desired or wanted by the person who receives it, then the touch will be considered a battery.

An assault, on the other hand, is defined as the act of creating a fear in the victim that he or she is about to be touched unwillingly. For example, if the criminal yelled at the victim that he or she was about to be hit and the victim did in fact fear that he or she was about to be hit, then an assault has occurred. In a criminal court, in order to prove that you were the victim of assault, you will have to prove that you were in fact in fear for your safety. This can be done through your testimony.

If you’ve been hurt as a result of an assault and battery happening anyplace in the State of Florida (including Miami, Miami-Dade County, West Palm Beach or Palm Beach County), contact this Fort Lauderdale Restaurant Accident Law Firm for a free, no-obligation consultation. Mr. Quackenbush will talk to you about all aspects of your case for free.

If you hire Mr. Quackenbush as your lawyer, he will work on contingency. This indicates that he won’t get paid a dime until you’ve received compensation in your case – so you don’t pay anything out-of-pocket.

Crucial Advice to Clients of this Fort Lauderdale Assault and Battery Accident Lawyer Anthony Quackenbush

Both assaults and batteries can result in injuries. Batteries can result in physical injuries as a result of the unwanted touching. Assaults, on the other hand, can result in emotional harms. After all, it doesn’t take actual physical touching in order to result in psychological effects.

If you were the victim of an assault and battery, the perpetrator may be arrested and your testimony may be required in order to pursue the case in Court. In addition to this, you may be able to pursue a civil, personal injury case in order to obtain compensation for your injuries. In the criminal case, you will not typically receive actual monetary compensation for your injuries (although there may be “victims’ funds” set-up in order to help with this). The point of the criminal case is to punish the wrongdoer in the form of jail/prison time or probation. On the other hand, in the civil case, the point is to compensate you for your injuries.

This Broward County Assault & Battery Accident Attorney/Lawyer Fights for his Clients with Strength

If the assault and battery that hurt you occurred on the property of a business establishment, then you may be able to pursue a “negligent security” or “inadequate/improper security” case against the business establishment where the incident occurred. You will be able to do this if you can successfully argue that the business establishment either didn’t provide any security on the property or didn’t provide adequate security – and this allowed the crime to occur.

Your negligent security case will be strongest if the incident occurred in a high-crime area. This is true because, in that case, it will be easy to argue that the business establishment should have provided adequate security. In order to prove that the incident occurred in a high crime area, Mr. Quackenbush will most likely order the “crime grids” for the area. The crime-grids show the history of crime in the area.
