Assault & Battery

The consequences of assault and battery crimes can be both physically and emotionally traumatic, and the responsible party should be held accountable. Our experienced personal injury lawyers at Kantaria Law, PLLC are here to help.

Under New York tort law, assault refers not only to cause physical harm but also to inducing fear of imminent physical harm. Battery involves the intentional infliction of physical harm, and both assault and battery occur when the former leads to the latter.


We handle a range of assault and battery cases including:

  • Domestic violence,

  • Sexual assault,

  • Bar or restaurant altercations,

  • Workplace aggression,

  • Robbery,

  • Excessive force by law enforcement officers.

  • The attacker,

  • Bar or nightclub owners,

  • Landlords,

We work tirelessly to get our clients the compensation they deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our process involves analyzing police reports, conducting independent investigations, consulting with experts to assess the case, negotiating with insurance companies, and building a strong, evidence-based claim.
