Assault and battery

Aggressive advocacy, outstanding legal expertise, and compassionate representation.

Assault and battery are often used interchangeably. Assault refers to an intentional act that causes a person to fear that they will be harmed. Battery refers to an intentional act of physical contact that causes harm or injury to another person. In short, assault is the threat of harm, while battery is the actual physical harm.

Assault and battery can occur in a variety of situations, such as in a bar fight, domestic violence, workplace disputes, or even road rage. In some cases, alcohol or drug use can contribute to these situations.

In order to successfully pursue a personal injury claim for assault and battery, the victim must be able to prove that the defendant was responsible for the injuries sustained.  This can be challenging, as there may be little evidence beyond witness testimony and the victim’s account of what happened. However, an experienced personal injury attorney can help build a strong case by conducting a thorough investigation and gathering evidence to support the victim’s claims.

If a victim is successful in pursuing a personal injury claim for assault and battery, they may be entitled to receive compensation for a variety of damages, including:

  • Medical expenses for injuries sustained
  • Lost wages and income due to time off work
  • Pain and suffering caused by the assault and battery
  • Emotional distress and trauma caused by the incident
  • Punitive damages, in cases where the perpetrator’s actions were particularly egregious

An assault and battery case can be emotionally and legally complex, and victims may not be fully aware of their legal rights and options for pursuing compensation.

Working with a personal injury attorney can help victims understand their rights, navigate the legal system, and maximize their chances of receiving fair compensation. An attorney can also handle the legal proceedings on the victim’s behalf, allowing them to focus on their physical and emotional recovery.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of assault, it’s important to seek help from a personal injury attorney to understand your legal rights and options for pursuing compensation.
