What To Do If You Were Assaulted in a Bar Fight

When it comes to filing an assault claim after a bar fight, timing is everything. You need to act quickly. Any delay can hurt your case. Here are some steps you can take after the fight.

Seek Medical Attention

Like any personal injury case, your primary concern is to seek medical help for your injuries. Go to the ER immediately. Once you receive treatment, make sure you gather all medical documents. Keep all medical reports, invoices, and receipts.

Notify the Establishment

After you receive medical treatment, contact the bar or establishment about the assault. The manager or owner may have filed a report about the incident. If possible, try to get a copy of the report. Again, do not delay notifying the establishment. The longer you wait, the more difficult it becomes to prove your case. 

Get Legal Consultation

Before moving forward with your assault claim, you may want to consult an assault attorney in Detroit, Michigan. An attorney can listen to your case and help you determine how best to proceed. Make sure you seek legal counsel from an attorney with experience with bar fights, personal injury, or assault cases. 

Proving Your Assault Case

Establishing liability in an assault case can be difficult if you were involved in the fight. For instance, if you got into an argument with someone and the other person hit you first, and you retaliated, you would either prove self-defense or that the other party provoked retaliation. As your attorneys, our legal team can help you establish fault and liability in the following ways:

  • Gather video surveillance or photos
  • Speak with eyewitnesses
  • View the bar’s incident report
  • Look at your medical records
  • Investigate the fight scene
  • Talk to the bar staff

Our team can establish that the other party was responsible for your injuries and that they are liable for subsequent damages you incurred.

What Can you Claim in a Personal Injury Case?

What you can claim in an assault case depends on several factors, such as the nature of the gith, who is at fault, and the total amount of your losses. Damages you may want to seek to include:

Hospital Bills

You may have to undergo extensive surgery or medical procedures, stay in recovery for several days, visit your doctor often, or take pain medication. Physical therapy or rehabilitation is also common after the assault. You may also be disabled or disfigured for the rest of your life.

Lost Pay

Recovery from an assault can take several weeks or months. You may have lost pay during this time due to being out of work. If you are permanently disabled, you may be able to claim the inability to draw a future income.

Noneconomic Damages

A bar fight can have a devastating impact on your life and family. You may experience emotional anguish, pain & suffering, or loss of consortium. Your injuries may also diminish your quality of life.
