Victim Right to Legal Action for Tort
After an assault, you may be feeling hurt, overwhelmed, at-risk, or violated, all of which are warranted feelings. Taking the steps to move forward may seem overwhelming, but rest assured, TorHoerman Law is here to help you take the steps in the right direction.
While a criminal trial can hold the perpetrator accountable for their actions which could result in fines or imprisonment, you, as the victim, may feel jaded. What about the medical bills that racked up from treatment and recovery? Or how will you pay for a counselor to help you move forward? What about the emotional distress and pain you are still feeling?
An assault lawsuit, pursued in a civil court, can help you recover the damages you suffered through compensation. An Edwardsville assault attorney can provide legal representation and help you receive the compensation you deserve.
