Can I Sue for an Injury from a Criminal Assault?

We’re often called accident lawyers, but not all injuries are the result of accidents. In a sad Long Island example that took place on Christmas Eve, a Uniondale man saw his ex-girlfriend with another man, and enraged with jealousy, decided to run them over with his car. The man then proceeded to kick his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend in the head before fleeing the scene.


It is important to know that while criminals are punished in criminal court, they can also be sued in civil court for personal injuries.  


If you’ve been the victim of a criminal act and don’t know whether you should pursue civil action, contact us with any questions, for advice and to get an idea of your legal options. There is no obligation and never a fee until we get you an award or settlement.
