Siben & Siben Long Island Assault Injury Lawyers

Are you the victim of an assault?  If so, contacting a Long Island assault injury lawyer right away is important in preserving your right to seek compensation from your assailant, and to gathering crucial evidence and eye-witness accounts of the assault itself.  A Long Island assault injury lawyer is a valuable resource following an assault.  Your lawyer can help you determine if you have a basis for a personal injury claim, and advise you as to whether you should also file a criminal complaint against the person who assaulted you.  An assault against you is a crime. The severity of the assault will determine whether the assault is a misdemeanor or felony assault.  Even if you were not seriously injured, you may still have the grounds to sue the assailant and be compensated for your injuries.

Assault can be the result of a type of altercation, struggle, fight, or attack.  Under the law, assault and battery occur when an assault is carried out by knocking the victim down, striking the victim, or causing physical or bodily harm to the victim in some other way.  Siben & Siben Long Island assault injury lawyers have years of experience in dealing with assaults with injury, and will fight to get you the money you deserve from your attacker, including money for:

  • Hospital and medical bills
