HATE CRIMES

A hate crime is a crime that is motivated by race, religion, disability, gender or ethnicity/national origin or other prejudice. The victim's actual status is irrelevant - for example, it is a hate crime if an attacker attacks someone because he or she believes a victim is Black, or mentally handicapped, or of a certain ethnicity or national origin, even if it is not actually true.
Texas allows for prosecution of hate crimes in civil court. Damages may be awarded by a civil court against a person who is judged to have committed a hate crime. A jury determines the amount of damages. There may be compensatory damages, an award to compensate the victim for the injury. Nominal damages can be awarded even if there has been no substantial injury. Some courts also allow punitive damages to punish the offender.

Physical Assault

Physical Assault is unwanted contact usually resulting in bodily injury, such as a black eye, bruising, broken bones, or fractures. Physical assault can also include unwanted touching or groping. In Texas a person can bring a civil cause of action for an assault, unwanted touching, that does not cause a physical injury. This would include assaults such as slapping another person in the face, touching another person on their breast or genitals without their consent.

Even police and emergency workers can be victims of physical assault. In one case, Kevin Madison represented a police officer who was a victim of an assault in response to a domestic disturbance call. The officer was hit, dragged down the stairs, and suffered a light concussion and injuries. A Travis County jury awarded the victim (the police officer) damages for the incident.

Kevin Madison also represented a victim in Harris County in an intentional tort lawsuit against a client's former "boyfriend" who assaulted her with karate blows to her face and who fractured her wrist. A Judgment of $87,500.00 for actual and punitive damages was awarded.
