Frequently Asked Questions About Violent Assault Injuries in South Florida
Yes. A civil claim for compensation for a violent assault does not require a prior criminal conviction. Under the criminal justice system, the state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the alleged perpetrator of the assault upon you committed the charged crime. However, to recover compensation in a civil injury suit, you only need to prove that it was more likely than not that the alleged aggressor assaulted you.
Florida’s statute of limitations on injury claims normally gives you four years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit against the party or parties who inflicted the injury on you. If you wait too long to file suit, you may end up losing your opportunity for justice. This makes it critical to speak with a South Florida assault injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal options for pursuing a claim against those individuals who injured you.
