When someone intentionally applies force to you, threatens you, or intimidates you, you are being assaulted. The outcome of an assault can result in physical damage, a broken bone for example, emotional damage, such as ongoing fear, or result in a mental impairment, like post traumatic stress disorder. It is for these types of damage that you can commence a lawsuit.

Dedicated Assault Lawyers With Proven Success

In cases of physical or psychological assault, you can sue the person or people responsible to recover compensation for the damage you suffered. That includes taking action against the person who committed the assault, as well as any institution or business that allowed the assault to occur, such as a bar, tavern, concert venue, church, or school. A lawsuit can be successful even if the person committing the assault has not been arrested or convicted of a crime.

We work with clients who have been physically assaulted and have suffered broken bones, cuts, bruises, and other injuries. Our team of assault attorneys is experienced in helping those who have suffered physical damage, and work to recover lost income, lost work hours, and protect what you would have earned in the future.

Representing Victims in Cases of Domestic and Sexual Assault

We work with adults and children who were victims of sexual abuse at the hands of strangers, parents, or authority figures. Although a broken bone may be easy to diagnose, the mental or emotional toll of an assault is no less serious. Such a toll may remain long after any physical injury has healed to damage your lifestyle, impair your ability to work, and harm your ability to interact with your family. Our dedicated team includes a number of domestic and sexual assault lawyers who are experienced in helping those who have suffered mental and emotional damage recover compensation for pain and suffering.

We do not charge a fee for initial consultations. We can visit you at home, or any location you feel safe and comfortable. We only charge a fee if we recover you compensation, so if you decide to hire us as your lawyer, we will not require money up front.

If you have been a victim of assault, contact a Siskinds lawyer today.

5 out of 5 stars.

I am certainly grateful for Jill McCartney and Madeline McKinnon for all the time they spent on the class action for my and many others issue. People like me do not understand all the legal procedures and get impatient but the team was there to answer any questions or concerns no matter how many times I called or e-mailed and encouraged me to do so . In the end Jill made sure I totally understood the decisions.  Thank you so much for caring. Would recommend this firm anytime. - F.A.

I am sincerely grateful to Leanne Kuchynski for representing my wife and I in what we considered to be an unprecedented situation. Leanne's compassion, practical advice, openness to feedback, brilliant strategic thinking and outstanding work ethic led to the most optimal outcome while maintaining a superior human experience. Despite the harsh realities of the situation, I felt extremely comfortable that our best interest was Leanne's utmost priority and was confident in her demonstrated ability. She was professional and exceptionally thorough, yet remained remarkably caring.

I use to have a somewhat cautious disposition towards lawyers based on past experiences; however, Leanne completely restored my faith in the profession and earned my unquestionable loyalty for all future legal needs. - S.M.

“Knowledge is Power” is the driving force behind Catherine Bruni’s style of defense. Over the past decade Cathy has represented our firm with much success; the key factor being that Cathy knows every detail of the case, not only from the defense perspective, but the plaintiff’s side as well. Understanding the case from every angle gives our team an advantage, resulting in very favourable outcomes. Cathy’s straightforward approach has earned our respect and created a relationship of trust and confidence. Litigation is a stressful experience that can take away from one’s ability to operate a business. With Catherine Bruni as our advocate, we can continue to focus on the success of our business knowing that Cathy is managing one of the more difficult aspects of our business’s exposures. - A.P.
