  • What Are Assault and Battery? How Do They Relate to Personal Injury Law?

    Typically, people conflate the terms "assault" and "battery" without knowing they hold separate meanings. Assault involves the intent to instill fear in a victim, while battery relates to actual physical contact. In the state of Florida, both acts are crimes. However, many offenders never receive a criminal conviction.

    Usually, personal injury cases have to do with negligence. For example, the person at fault in a car accident may not have meant to cause harm — but did so regardless. Personal injury matters sometimes involve malicious intent. Intentional torts, such as assault and battery, can form the basis of civil cases in which victims can recover significant sums.

    In Florida, assault and battery can carry serious criminal consequences. Depending on the nature of the attack, the offender may face misdemeanor or felony charges. Penalties could include steep fines as well as months or even years behind bars. But while these punishments are critical for delivering justice, they do little to appease the concerns of the victim. Often, victims of assault and battery suffer severe injuries that leave them with hefty medical bills in addition to years of physical and emotional trauma. Thankfully, victims can seek legal recourse in the form of personal injury cases.

  • How Can an Assault and Battery Lawyers in Melbourne Help?

    Having the right legal representation on your side can make all the difference. Many assault and battery victims face expensive medical bills and other expenses that relate to the attack. For example, taking time off work to recover can result in lost wages. A good Melbourne, Florida, assault and battery lawyer will fight for your best interests while extending compassion to you and those you love. Legal counsel will gather evidence and create a strong case on your behalf to recover the financial compensation you deserve.
