While often used as a singular phrase, assault and battery are in fact two separate charges. Assault is the intentional threat against another person in a way that causes them to fear imminent physical harm. Even in the event that no physical attack exists, a person may still have committed assault. If you were ever threatened or made to fear for your safety, it’s likely you’ve been assaulted. If that threat is carried out, it is defined as battery. When one person touches another against their will in a harmful, offensive, violent or painful way, it is defined as battery. The reason these two charges are so frequently connected is because it’s very rare that a person commits battery without first committing assault.
Assault and battery can occur in many different contexts. It could be a sort of domestic violence, an attack by a stranger, or could involve the use of a vehicle or weapon.
Being a victim of assault and battery can be emotionally difficult, and can cause serious and painful issues and in many cases requires hospitalization and costly medical treatment for physical injuries. If you were injured by another person, you have a right to seek compensation for damages. This could include reparation for medical bills, loss of wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and the cost of any property damage.
