Kinds Of Damages in Assault
A friend of mine got involved in a case of assault. What damages can he claim?
- Sector-1, Noida
In most situations, there may be three kinds of damages that individuals may claim in a battery and assault case. They could claim compensatory damages which would include medical bills. These damages may compensate for the physical injuries that the victim may have sustained. The victim could also claim nominal damages which would be an acknowledgement that the individual has suffered from an invasion of his/her rights. In some situations, he/she may also claim punitive damages which would be higher than the compensatory damages. These may be awarded in extreme circumstances to further punish the accused.
