West Palm Beach Assault & Battery

Assault and battery cause intense physical and emotional suffering. Thankfully, obtaining justice is possible, and victims don’t need to depend exclusively on the criminal justice system to deliver it. If you are the victim of assault or battery, take legal action.

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.
