Baton Rouge Assault Injury Attorneys
Victims of assault or battery can suffer severe physical, psychological, and financial harm. These attacks can result in hospitalization, follow-up medical care, emotional trauma, and more, sidelining you from your job or career while you face associated medical or counseling expenses. These cases often result in criminal charges brought against the attacker. However, while a conviction may bring you some form of justice, it does not result in compensation for what you have suffered.
Even if criminal charges are brought against your attacker and before the case has been resolved in the criminal court system, assault victims retain the right to sue the other party for damages through legal action in a civil case.

Will I need to pay any money upfront to get my personal injury started?
No, you will not need any money to get your case started or to initially meet with an attorney. We handle most cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not get paid unless you recover money.
What is a deposition?
A deposition is a statement given under oath, usually done in a lawyer’s office before a court reporter. Witnesses called to testify in a deposition answer questions posed by attorneys representing both parties in a case. The court reporter produces a written transcript of everything said at the deposition and the witness can read and sign the transcript, swearing it to be an accurate rendition of the testimony given under oath.
What documents should I bring with me when I meet with a lawyer?
The more information you are able to gather for your attorney, the easier it will be for your attorney to determine whether your claim will be successful. You should supply any documents that might have a bearing on your case, including, but not limited to, collision reports, photographs and medical records. If you have not collected any documents, do not worry because your lawyer will be able to obtain them.
