  • What Are Assault and Battery? How Do They Differ?

    In the context of intentional torts and personal injury, assault is any act in which the perpetrator causes an apprehension (or fear) of imminent harm. To engage in assault, the perpetrator doesn’t have to engage in physical contact — just make a threat.

    In the state of Florida, battery is different from assault even though people conflate conflate the terms. Battery involves actual physical contact that occurs intentionally and against the will of the victim.

  • Assault and Battery as Personal Injury Claims

    Most people believe that only the criminal justice system handles cases involving assault and battery. While criminal courts can hold offenders accountable, the civil court system can also oversee these cases.

    In criminal court, offenders must be found guilty beyond all reasonable doubt to be convicted. However, with personal injury, a preponderance of the evidence can lead to significant damages. Financial compensation can alleviate economic burdens relating to the attack as well as deliver a sense of justice where the criminal court may fall short.

  • Why Work With an Assault and Battery Attorney in West Palm Beach?

    If you are a victim of assault or battery, it’s crucial to have an attorney with experience and a deep understanding of the local laws on your side. This is especially true if the other party has legal representation of their own.

Assault and battery isn’t something to take on alone — with a lawyer, you stand a much better chance of recovering the damages you deserve.
