Compensation for Assault Victims in NJ

This may be accompanied by battery which is a harmful, non-consensual touching. Many times these two acts occur together and may be simply referred to as an assault. If you have been the victim of an assault, it is your right to file criminal charges against the person who assaulted you. With the representation of an experienced New Jersey premises liability lawyer you may be able to recover monetary compensation for your injuries.
Types of Assault
Assault comes in many forms, such as:
Physical Assault - Physical attack and infliction of pain or bodily injury upon another person.
Sexual Assault - Making an individual engage in unwanted sexual acts, by means of threats or force.
Verbal Assault - Threats of violence against another person.
Some of the people who are most at risk for assaults include women, children, and the elderly. In some cases the victim may be assaulted by a person they know, such as a spouse, family member, friend, or acquaintance. While some assaults are made by strangers for seemingly unknown motives, other assaults are hate crimes against certain populations.
