As an experienced Buffalo Personal Injury Attorney, I am often asked by clients if they are able to pursue a claim if assaulted at a bar or restaurant. The answer is yes you can, although there are some issues to it. First of all, assault is an intentional act and therefore the claim against the person who did the actual act is only one year. The claim against the establishment for improper security, improper training, and improper supervision can be claimed up to three years. These cases are very fact specific. If you have witnesses who were able to see what happened, and the altercation was not your fault, all of these things are factors to consider if your claim will be successful or not.
