The New York personal injury Law Office of Mark A. Siesel has been representing the victims of assault for over 20 years. If you were the victim of an assault, our firm will aggressively and vigorously pursue just compensation for your physical and emotional injuries. If there has been a criminal action against the perpetrator, and he or she was found guilty, we will use that verdict or plea of guilty to maximize your potential recovery
It is vitally important to contact an attorney immediately when you have been the victim of an assault, as the statute of limitations, or the time in which you must start a claim, can be as short as one year in certain instances, and if you were the victim of any attack by a police or other municipal enforcement officer, you must file a notice of claim with the appropriate city, village of town within 90 days of the incident.
The various types of assault cases include:
- Assaults as the result of negligent security;
- Assaults at nightclubs, bars, or office buildings;
- Domestic abuse cases, or assaults committed in the course of a criminal act such as a robbery;
- Sexual assault cases.
If you were the victim of an assault due to negligent security in an apartment building, or at a mall, parking garage, owners of these properties have a legal duty and responsibility to provide adequate security and to make sure that their employees do not have criminal backgrounds. In cases involving security in building complexes, if it can be shown that the landlord was informed of a broken lock or insufficiently lit area of the property, the landlord can be held liable for your injuries.
Assaults at nightclubs and bars are frequently the result of overly aggressive bouncers and other security personnel. Similarly to cases involving assaults in malls, parking lots and apartment complexes, owners frequently fail to obtain the necessary background checks to determine whether their employees have a history of assaults or other criminal behavior. The New York Law Office of Mark A. Siesel has obtained settlements and verdicts on behalf of clients who were injured due to the aggressive actions and excessive force or security employees and bouncers.
We will aggressively investigate your case immediately, including obtaining all witness statements, reviewing all police reports and records, and obtaining background checks to determine whether the perpetrators of these assaults have committed other assaults previously. We will vigorously pursue all avenues of compensation, including all of the responsible parties and their insurance companies, in order to maximize your recovery for physical and emotional pain and suffering.
