Our intimate romantic and sexual partners tend to be the people with whom we are most vulnerable. Thus, when they commit acts of physical violence against us, the pain we endure as a result can be remarkably difficult to cope with.
Have you been the victim of physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner? You may be eligible to recover compensation if so. Contact a Los Angeles physical abuse attorney at Okabe and Haushalter to discuss your legal options.

Unfortunately, research from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence indicates violence involving intimate partners is more common than many realize. Consider the following points:
Hopefully, you will never be the victim of an intimate partner’s physical violence. However, if you are, it’s important to know that our Los Angeles physical abuse attorneys can help you pursue compensation from your abuser.

Thus, it’s helpful to familiarize yourself with the various steps you can take to build a case against them. They include (but are not necessarily limited to) the following:
Documenting these experiences can be stressful. However, in the long run, doing so will significantly improve your chances of recovering the compensation for which you may be eligible.
