Assault Lawyers in Toronto
If you have suffered injury as a result of an assault, battery, or any other intentional act, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.
Recovery of damages is sought through the civil justice system which is separate and apart from the criminal justice process . In some cases, both a civil and criminal case may be appropriate. As a result, it is important to speak to a lawyer early on to determine the appropriate course of action.
Assault, battery, and other intentional acts that cause personal injury are known as “intentional torts”. Because these acts involve intent, the laws of negligence may not apply.
Assault and battery often occur as a result of conflict with another person, and can take place anywhere. Wherever possible, it is important to obtain the names and contact information of witnesses, as the biggest challenge with intentional tort cases is often determining what exactly took place. When these types of incidents take place, emotions are usually running high and both parties are likely to have different perspectives regarding the incident. Therefore, it is extremely important to have an independent witness to support your version of events.
