Van Heerden's Attorneys in South Africa are the legal experts

We have assisted clients with some of the most tedious and complicated cases seen to date, and our win ratio is excellent.

Assault claims can become highly complex, especially should the SAP be involved. Although these assault cases seem to be on the rise, we take an aggressive approach to fight for our clients, no matter who they may be up against.

Claims against assault

If you have been hurt intentionally, be it from a police officer, from a person or individual that you know or don’t know, or even a spouse, contact us as soon as possible. The first step would be to lay a charge at the police station, to prove that you reported the incident.

You may even need medical attention, in these cases, a medical report or doctor noted can be used in court to show the extent of your injuries. Photographs of the injuries or the person who hurt you are also a major help in your case.

Whatever your situation may be, let us put together a complete case, and take it from there. Although these cases take time and are often emotionally draining having to relive the incident over and over, the outcome of seeing justice served is worth the fight. Your compensation earned for the course can cover medical bills which can build up from an injury sustained.

You can claim for pain and suffering, damage to property for home invasion, you can also claim for loss of income, should you not be able to work from the incident and injuries. Get in touch with us as soon as you can, so we can get started with your case. Let us stand up for you when you can’t! The best way forward to getting justice for these unnecessary crimes is to make the bold first move and get legal assistance.
