How Liability is Determined in Assault Injury Cases

Determining liability in assault injury cases can be a complex process, and it depends on various factors. Liability may be attributed to different parties involved:

  • Criminal Acts: When the assault is a result of criminal activity, the perpetrator may face criminal charges. However, victims can also pursue civil remedies to seek compensation.
  • Premises Liability: In cases where the assault occurred on a property, premises liability may come into play. Property owners are responsible for providing reasonable security, and if they fail in this duty, they may be held liable.
  • Negligence: In certain situations, third parties who contributed to the assault by failing to provide reasonable security or taking actions that led to the incident may also bear liability.

By thoroughly investigating the circumstances surrounding the assault, our attorneys work diligently to determine liability and build a compelling case to secure the compensation you deserve.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fielding in the past, and I cannot recommend him and his team enough. They're true professionals from intake to close outs, and will make sure a difficult process goes as smoothly as possible. All-around great guy and one heck of an attorney.

As a fellow Arizona attorney, my interactions with Fielding Law was top notch. Both attorneys and support staff were friendly and helpful. Plus, their office in Tempe is brand new and very cool.

It was great to have Clark and his team in our corner. We were t-boned by someone that ran a red light. However, while we were being taken to the hospital, the other driver told the police that it was our fault. With things not looking good, Clark was able to get our side of the story reported to the police, deal with all the doctors and insurance people and get us a settlement. They went above and beyond what we thought was possible. Can’t imagine dealing with this nightmare without Clark and his team.
