Los Angeles is famous for its celebrities. There are a number of public figures, including celebrities, social media stars, sports figures, musicians, actors, etc. that either live in or frequent Los Angeles. If you are a resident of Los Angeles, it is very likely that you might come across a celebrity that you recognize at one point or another (encounters are common in restaurants, shopping centers, events, and on the road, for instance).
Encounters with celebrities are not always pleasant. Did you have a negative encounter with a public figure? Did the encounter leave you injured? Were you or a member of your family harmed because of the negligent actions of a celebrity? Unfortunately, common incidents involving celebrities often consist of assault and battery. If you or a member of your family were assaulted by a celebrity, you should seek legal assistance as soon as possible – you might have grounds to sue.

Assault and Battery Incidents
What is assault and battery? The words “assault” and “battery” are normally used together, but they are referring to different things. Assault specifically refers to attempted violence, which can also be considered the threat of violence. Battery, on the other hand, specifically refers to the act of violence (i.e., acting on the threat of violence). In most cases, assault and battery happen together, although they can happen separately.
In most cases, assault and battery incidents stem from verbal arguments, in which one of the parties involved threatens violence and follows through with the threat. Assault and battery can lead to a number of injuries, some of which can be fatal.
Some examples of the injuries that victims of assault and battery are likely to suffer include the following:
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Fractures (rib fractures are common)
- Sprains and strains
- Organ damage
- Internal bleeding
Regardless of the specific harm that victims suffer in assault and battery cases, it is important that affected parties know their rights and find a lawyer to help them pursue an assault and battery lawsuit.
Can You Sue for Assault and Battery?
Can I sue if I was assaulted by a social media star? Can I sue if I was assaulted by an IG star or Instagram star? Can I sue after I was assaulted by a YouTube star? Whether you were assaulted by a social media star, a sports figure (including basketball players, hockey players, baseball players), a musician (including rappers, singers, etc.), or another celebrity artist (like an actor or actress), you can sue. Whether you were attacked by an NFL or NBA star or just a random person of the street, you have rights – and you could sue.
You could sue for the harm caused by their actions (intentional and malicious). If you are interested in learning more about your right to sue, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our law firm immediately.
Examples of Other Incidents Involving Celebrities
Assault and battery is just one of the incidents that could involve celebrities harming innocent parties. Other examples of incidents include the following:
- Sexual assault (including rape)
- Car accidents
- Injuries on their premises (i.e., injured in their home or on their property, injured at a party held at their house, private events hosted by celebrities, like house parties etc.)
Whether you were injured at a party (parties hosted by public figures) or injured in any other incident, you could have grounds to sue the celebrity. If you are currently in this position, do not be afraid to seek legal assistance as soon as possible.
You Can Recover Compensation
If you decide to pursue an assault and battery claim or a claim for harm resulting from any other incident, you could be eligible to recover monetary compensation. What could you recover? How much compensation could you receive? The type and amount of compensation that you could receive will always be based on the details surrounding your personal injury claim; however, your recovery could include some of the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial costs
- Punitive damages
- Legal expenses
If you are interested in learning more about the specific compensation that you could receive, do not hesitate to contact the experts at our law firm as soon as possible. Our lawyers are ready to help you recover the highest compensation available for your injury claim.
The Statute of Limitations
How long do you have to file your assault and battery lawsuit against a celebrity? All personal injury claims – including assault and battery claims – are subject to a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations determines the total length of time that you have to file your injury claim. If you do not file your claim on time, you could lose your right to file your lawsuit entirely.
What deadline applies to your claim? In California, injury claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations, which means that claimants will only have two years to file their claim. In some cases, however, it is possible for exceptions to the statute of limitations to apply. To ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the total length of time that you have to sue, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our law firm immediately. Our lawyers will help you file your injury claim on time.
