Assault and Battery

When your injuries are caused by another person intentionally, you have the right to sue them for those injuries. Regardless of the severity of your injuries the intentional act of assaulting you leaves the aggressor liable for your injuries.

The aggressor need not be convicted of causing your injuries. In fact, in many cases they may not be convicted because of the higher level of proof required in criminal proceedings, known as “reasonable doubt”. In a civil lawsuit however, the level of proof is generally a “preponderance of the evidence”.

To understand these principles, let us explain the difference between “reasonable doubt” and a “preponderance of the evidence”.

Reasonable Doubt

“Reasonable doubt” means that after presentation of the evidence, a jury could not find that there is any realistic doubt that the person committed the act. Reasonable doubt can be as simple as a lack of independent witnesses to corroborate the victim’s testimony. It can be the mere possibility that the assailant might have been someone else who looks similar to the accused. It can be any set of circumstances that might cause a “reasonable” person to believe there is a mere possibility that the accused did not commit the crime.

Preponderance of the Evidence

“Preponderance of the Evidence” is virtually the opposite. This means that a reasonable person could conclude that based on the available facts, it is extremely likely that the accused is the person who committed the act and that despite some doubt, it is far more likely that they did, than that they did not.

The difference between these two levels of proof is why even though a person may not be convicted in criminal proceedings and sent to jail, they may be found liable in civil proceedings and be ordered to compensate a victim financially.

How we can help

The most difficult part of pursuing an assault and battery claim is generally collecting on the judgment. Sometimes homeowners or other insurance will cover the claim, but most insurance does not cover intentional acts by the insured. As such, it is often necessary to utilize the methods outlined in the California Code of Civil Procedure for collecting on judgments.

These methods include levying on bank accounts, garnishing wages, and forcing the sale of property. Many firms will simply turn away cases where there is no easy way of collecting. Here at the Lalezary Firm, we are experienced in post-judgment collections and will carry the case through to the end.

What Our Clients Say

Honestly can't say enough positive things about Lalezary Law Firm! I got into a severe car accident at the end of 2016 and they've been with me every step of the way ever since. Almost 4 years! I want to thank everyone there especially Caitlyn, Shawn, and Yasmeen. They have been responsive, helpful, and reassuring and I don't know what I would've done if I didn't have the legal support that I was able to get along the years. They are super professional and really helped me get through this hardship in my life. I would definitely recommend!!!

Last year I contacted your law firm when I got into a car accident. the gentleman that handled my case, his name was Cesar. Cesar was very helpful and compassionate about my situation. He helped me get my car fixed very quickly and was super patient with me. He answered all of my questions and ensured me that everything will be taken care of. Once my case was settled I ended up getting more than I was expecting, which was amazing. I highly recommended Cesar and this law firm to anyone that needs help.

I was a client to Lalezary firm for about a year, the staff is really nice and professional. I would get updates on the case status and when I did call I would usually get a call back within 24 hours. I really appreciate the work that was done for me. I got the most out of my settlement and when I called to have a break down of the costs, Genesis was very patient and gave me a break down on all of it. I will definitely recommend this law firm to friends and family, as well as call them in the future if needed (hopefully not soon).

I had gotten into an accident and had no idea what to do. Friends and family recommended I get a lawyer since I was not at fault. I found this firm and I was beyond impressed. They handled everything for me from car insurance questions to finding doctors for me to visit. After my accident all I had to do was make appointments with various doctors to help with my pain. I give five stars because this firm went above and beyond and continued to follow up with me. I highly recommend if you are in need of a lawyer to use them.

The team at Lalezary we’re amazing! I am not the kind of person to seek legal counsel, but I was hit by a car while riding a motorcycle and the driver’s insurance was avoiding my attempts to get reimbursed. They were able to not only get a settlement that replaced my motorcycle, but they found me physical therapy which was close to my work. Now I am back to where I was physically before the accident and I am able to ride a motorcycle again. They were always responsive to my texts, calls, and emails. They even would systematically check to see how I was healing and if the support they linked me to was satisfactory.

This law firm is a team of miracle workers! Lalezary Law Firm saved me from suffering at another law firm from Century City. My case manager Jonathan was able to gather all the details from my accident ( literally within a week! ) and keeping me updated consistenty to keep me at ease. They work diligently and keep at it until your case is completed. I went through a car accident that almost took my life away but thanks to the higher power and Lalezary Law Firm, you won't even hesitate to choose them because I felt trust and integrity throughout my case and I feel happier in my life, which in my opinion, matters the most at the end of the day.
