Assault Claims Through Small Claims Court

If you've been a victim of assault, seeking justice and compensation may be on your mind. The legal process can be intimidating. However, with Squabble, you can easily navigate the small claims court system to file an assault claim. We understand that not everyone is a legal expert, and we're here to make the process as simple as possible.

In this guide, we'll address your questions about assault claims, types of assault, criminal versus civil assault, punitive damages, and more.

What Types of Assault Can I Sue For?

Assault claims can vary in nature, and it's essential to understand the types of assault you can sue for:

Physical Assault

Physical assault involves intentional bodily harm or the threat of harm. If someone physically attacks you, causing injuries, you can file an assault claim seeking compensation for medical expenses, pain, and suffering.

Verbal Assault

Verbal assault, also known as verbal abuse, occurs when someone uses threatening or abusive language to intimidate or harm you emotionally.

While not causing physical injuries, it can still pose severe consequences on your mental health. You may be eligible to seek compensation for emotional distress.

Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is a grave offense, and all victims have the right to seek justice. If you've been a victim of sexual assault, you can file a civil assault claim to hold the perpetrator accountable and seek compensation for physical and emotional trauma.

Workplace Assault

Assault can also occur in the workplace. If you were assaulted at work, you may have a valid claim against your employer or the responsible party. Assault at work can encompass physical and verbal abuse.

Criminal vs. Civil Assault

Understanding the difference between criminal and civil assault is crucial when pursuing an assault claim. Here’s what you need to know.

Criminal Assault

Criminal assault involves the state prosecuting the assailant for their actions. The goal is to punish the offender with penalties such as imprisonment, fines, or probation. Additionally, the burden of proof lies with the prosecution to demonstrate guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

As a victim, you may be called as a witness, but you won't directly receive compensation through criminal charges.

Civil Assault

Civil assault, on the other hand, is a legal avenue for victims to seek damages for medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other losses incurred directly from the perpetrator. It focuses on providing relief to the victim, including financial compensation for damages suffered.

Filing a civil assault claim allows you to take control of your pursuit of justice.

What Are Punitive Damages in Civil Assault Cases?

Punitive damages, also known as exemplary damages, serve as a form of punishment for the defendant. These damages are awarded in civil assault cases when the court believes the defendant's actions were negligent, reckless, or malicious.

In assault cases, punitive damages aim to deter the defendant from engaging in such behavior in the future. They go beyond compensating the victim for their losses and serve as a warning to others that such conduct is not excusable.
