Dealing with assault and battery charges – Can a lawyer help you?
Both ‘battery’ and ‘assault’ are legal terms which describe the type of conduct which can lead to criminal and civil liability. Suppose you walk amidst a crowd and you suddenly make an incidental contact with a person which is called ‘bumping into someone’ this won’t lead to a case of battery but when you push that person intentionally in the same crowd, this will make it a charge of ‘battery’.

An assault is viewed as a civil or criminal wrong and it is defined as a purposeful conduct which places another person in the fear of harmful contact. It is said that an assault can be committed even when the contact doesn’t actually occur. It is, in other words, the intentional creation of the fear of contact which arises criminal or civil liability. The assault and battery lawyers are there to help you deal with such cases.

Are you accused of assault and battery? What should you do?

Well, the penalties of the charges will entirely depend on whether or not you’re charged with the normal assault or battery or when you’re charged with aggravated battery or assault. In short, it will depend on the extent of harm which was inflicted on the victim of the case.
