In Florida and all other states, if a person suffers physical harm due to another party's negligence or wrongful acts, he or she is entitled to file a legal claim against the responsible party or parties in a civil court. A recent incident resulted in criminal charges being filed against a man who is accused of causing personal injury to a woman during an assault. The woman's children were said to be present at the time and witnessed the assault.
Officers say that the 30-year-old man in question bit the woman, as well as struck her in the head during a recent physical altercation. Children who were present at the time of the alleged assault apparently did what they could to protect their mother by tying to get the man to stop his assault. The woman was taken to a hospital where she continues to recover from her injuries.
