Assault & Battery
Assault and battery occur when a person threatens or is physical with another person. They are usually clumped together, but legally they are distinct claims.
Assault is an intent to cause harmful or offensive contact. It does not necessarily require contact to have occurred, only that there was a reasonable belief that a person would be touched in a harmful or offensive manner. Battery, on the other hand, requires actual physical content.
Both assault and battery are considered intentional acts, meaning that the person engaging in these acts intends them. The consequences for someone on the receiving end of an assault and battery can be and often are tragic, requiring medical attention and sometimes leaving the victim with debilitating or disfiguring injuries.
