Assault and battery are complex and potentially very serious legal charges. Understanding the complexities of the law when you are accused of assault can be confusing and intimidating.
There are different degrees of assault, depending on the injury to others and the circumstances of how those injuries occurred.
Was it intentional? Accidental? Careless or reckless, which the law refers to as "wanton" recklessness? All these circumstances and more must be considered. No two cases are alike, and it takes a deep understanding of all statutes of the law and experience in defending people against such charges to mount an effective and completely comprehensive defense strategy.
