Civil Assault

If you or someone you love has been the victim of an assault, you deserve compensation for your mental and physical injuries.   We at Cooper Sevillano understand that victims of assault, particularly those who are victims of sexual assault, may suffer detrimental effects that last long after their bruises fade.  Our experienced trial attorneys can assist you in bringing a claim against all responsible parties from the assailant to the property owner who failed to provide a safe and secure property.


It is important for victims to understand that there may be statutes of limitations in cases of assault.  This makes it crucial that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to help you to preserve your claim.  Connecticut does have a very liberal statute of limitations in child sexual assault and abuse cases permitting claims within 30 years of the date the child reaches 18 or 5 years after they have notified a police officer or prosecutor of the crime.


Also, if you are the victim of an assault, you may have a viable claim against the owner of the home or business where the assault occurred.  Such property owners have a duty to safeguard visitors and patrons.  If a property owner fails to provide adequate security or lighting and an assault results, he or she can be held accountable.  In addition, if you were assaulted by someone who is intoxicated, you may be able to recover from the individual or establishment that furnished the alcohol.


Claims Handled on a Contingency Basis


Remember that all of our cases are handled on a contingency-fee basis which means we are only paid when we win a case and recover money for our clients.  If you or someone you love was the victim of a sexual assault or other attack, we urge you to contact our office immediately free, no obligation, confidential consultation at  (203) 366-0660 or email us at
