Chicago Assault and Battery Injury Lawyer

Hyde Park Lawyer for bar fight injury compensation

Attorney for Bar Fight Injuries in Hyde Park and Cook County

In many cases, personal injuries are the result of negligence. For example, car accidents may occur because a driver did not follow the rules of the road, or a person may suffer a slip and fall injury because a store owner failed to address hazards such as slippery floors. However, there are also situations in which a person intentionally inflicts injuries on someone else. In cases involving assault and battery, victims will want to work with an attorney to determine their options for pursuing compensation from the person who injured them or anyone else who was responsible.

If you have been injured in an assault, The Law Offices of David A. Kadzai, LLC can provide you with experienced representation to help ensure that you are fully compensated for your damages. With more than 10 years of legal experience, Attorney David Kadzai knows how to establish liability in these cases, and he will work to hold all applicable parties responsible for your injuries.

Assault and Battery Injuries

You may be familiar with the term "assault and battery" when it refers to the criminal charges a person may face after intentionally harming someone else. However, these are actually two separate offenses. Assault refers to causing someone to reasonably fear that they will suffer bodily harm, while battery refers to actually inflicting intentional harm on someone else.

In cases involving assault and battery, a victim can suffer a wide variety of injuries. A physical attack can result in cuts and lacerations, serious bruises, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, dislocated joints, injuries to internal organs, and more. The medical bills involved in treating these injuries can be significant, and a person may be unable to return to work while recovering. Victims may also experience emotional harm, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). By filing a personal injury lawsuit against the person who committed the assault, a victim can pursue compensation that addresses these damages.

Bar Fight Injuries

Fights in bars or nightclubs are some of the most common situations in which people experience injuries due to assault and battery. Alcohol intoxication often causes people to act aggressively, and something as simple as a perception that someone acted rudely can escalate into a heated disagreement and a physical confrontation.

Bar fights can not only affect the people who are directly involved, but they may cause harm to other patrons or bystanders. Injuries inflicted in these cases can be severe, especially if a person uses a weapon such as a broken bottle or bar stool. Determining liability in these cases can sometimes be difficult, especially if a conflict escalates into a brawl involving multiple people, as well as bouncers or security guards.

Victims of bar fight injuries should note that in addition to pursuing a claim against the person who attacked them, they may also be able to hold the bar or nightclub responsible for their damages. An establishment may be liable for injuries that occurred because they continued to serve alcohol to a patron who was visibly intoxicated and belligerent, because they did not provide adequate security to protect patrons from harm, or because a bouncer used unnecessary force against a patron.
