What Is a Civil Assault Injury Claim? 

Under Georgia Code § 51-1-14, “any violent injury or illegal attempt to commit a physical injury upon a person is a tort for which damages may be recovered.” In other words, if you suffered physical or emotional harm as a result of attempted or actual violence, you may be eligible for compensation by filing a civil assault claim. An assault injury lawsuit can be brought against any entity that caused or contributed to the assault, including property owners and managers who failed to provide adequate security measures.

Civil Assault vs. Criminal Assault Claims

In a civil assault claim, plaintiffs can recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages related to their injuries. Unlike criminal charges, which are pursued by the state and can result in fines or incarceration for the perpetrator, a civil assault claim is a private lawsuit between the victim and the responsible party. This means that even if criminal charges aren’t filed or result in an acquittal, you may still be eligible to pursue justice through an assault injury claim.

Is Physical Contact Required to Recover Damages in a Civil Assault Claim?

No, physical contact isn’t required to recover damages in an assault injury claim. Under state law, any illegal attempt to commit a physical injury constitutes assault. While plaintiffs must prove they suffered “actual harm” (damages) as a result of the act, this isn’t specifically limited to physical harm (economic damages), but also extends to psychological distress, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, and other non-economic damages

What Is Georgia’s Statute of Limitations for Civil Assault?

In Georgia, the statute of limitations for filing a civil assault claim is two years from the date of the incident. It’s crucial to seek swift counsel as soon as possible after an assault to protect your rights and ensure your claim is filed correctly, completely, and within the appropriate deadline.
