Assault Cases


There are over 800,000 assaults reported in the United States each year. Far too many of those involve police or private security. At Bergener Mirejovsky, we take any abuse by authority seriously. Our personal injury attorneys are dedicated to pursuing justice for victims of excessive force or assault by police, sheriffs, other law enforcement officers, private security, and bouncers.

Often victims of assault do not realize that they have a claim. These cases are normally investigated by police, and when a district attorney does not file a claim, the victims think they have run out of options when in fact they may have a civil case.

Our accident attorneys at Bergener Mirejovsky can advise you of your options and help you determine whether or not you have a case. We aggressively defend your rights and vigorously pursue any rightful claims for damages, medical expenses, and compensation for pain and suffering you have endured. We will thoroughly investigate the accident scene and delve into any other evidence that played a role in the assault. Our team will also carefully review any actions taken by other parties, including the district attorney’s office, police department, and other investigators.

What Should I Do After Experiencing an Assault?

If you have been injured in a violent assault, your primary focus should be your health.

  • Seek immediate medical attention  Even if you believe your injuries to be minor. Serious injuries can be initially masked after a traumatic event. An evaluation by a medical professional can give you and your family peace of mind and allow you to continue on to your recovery.
  • Contact the police immediately – The reporting officers should write up a detailed report of the accident. This is in your favor, even if you fear you may be partly responsible for the incident. A police report should include the names of the involved parties, which will be invaluable in pursuing your assault claim.
  • Take pictures and video of the accident scene – If the circumstances permit, try and take pictures or video of the accident scene.
  • Write down contact information from any available witnesses – Having witnesses can help improve the validity of your claim and build a stronger case.We have seen the remarkable difference a credible witness testimony can make to a claim.
  • Contact a Lawyer – Immediately after, you should consider consulting a strong, reputable, professional attorney that can handle your case.

Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Assault cases are varied and can be extremely complicated. Depending on the exact circumstance of the incident that resulted in your injuries, you may have a short status of limitations. This means that the allotted timeframe to file the lawsuit is smaller and has to be done quicker than usual. If this deadline is not met, the right to take legal action will be waived. Only an experienced injury lawyer familiar with the ins and outs of assault cases can properly evaluate the details of your case.

Oftentimes, assault personal injury claims require the help of safety analysts to evaluate the proper protocol for the scenario and other expert testimony or reports to be conducted and created. Negligent parties such as individuals, property owners, and police departments will look out for their own self-interests. They may claim a different course of events or erase security footage that would be critical to your case. It doesn’t help matters that witnesses can move or become unavailable for comment.

At Bergener Mirejovsky, we believe that a proper personal injury lawyer goes above and beyond to protect your interests. We will do everything to help you receive the full compensation you deserve. Call us at 1-800-881-2021 to discuss your options any hour of the day.

That means we charge you nothing unless we reach a successful settlement of your claim. If we don’t get you compensated for your damages, you don’t pay us a dime.
