Aggressive Legal Representation From Our Experienced Atlanta Assault Injury Lawyers
Violent assaults and attacks can occur as a random act between strangers, as the result of an altercation in a public setting, or as the result of issues with family members of friends. Unfortunately, the injuries you suffer as a result can be severe and potentially life threatening.
At the law firm of Calvin A. Edwards, Jr., our Atlanta assault injury lawyers stand up for the rights of victims, providing compassionate care and aggressive legal representation to help you get justice. While the criminal justice system punishes guilty parties, we hold them financially accountable so that you can get the compensation you need to recover.
Atlanta Assault Injury Lawyers: Offering Hope For Crime Victims
The latest statistics from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation indicate over 20,000 aggravated assaults are reported to police each year in the state, and over half of these occur in Atlanta. This does not include crimes such as simple assault and domestic battery, which impact thousands more victims in our area each year.
Aggravated assault generally involves the use of a weapon, but even in assault and battery cases in which a weapon is not used, serious and potentially life-threatening injuries can result. These include:
- Bruises, cuts, and severe lacerations;
- Broken bones and multiple fractures;
- Muscle and tendon strains, sprains, and tears;
- Damage to internal organs and internal bleeding;
- Back and neck injuries, such as fractured vertebrae and spinal cord damage;
- Head injuries, including concussion and traumatic brain injury.
Perpetrators face heavy punishments under Section 16 of the Georgia Criminal Code, but victims are still left to deal with the devastating physical and emotional damages. At the law firm of Calvin A. Edwards, Jr, our assault injury lawyers provide hope for crime victims and their families, assisting them in getting the compensation they need to recover.
