Chula Vista Assault & Battery Lawyers
Assault and battery are two general terms that can cover a number of actions ranging in severity from those perpetrated by childhood bullies or dangerous criminals. These harmful acts can be very dangerous and may result in severe, life-altering injuries or death. The terms “assault” and “battery” are often used interchangeably, but they hold different definitions under the law. Assault is generally defined as the threat of a violent action while battery occurs when the threat is enacted and becomes a physical attack.

Cases We Handle
A person committing assault does not have to touch their victim. Making a threat of violence constitutes assault. For example, pointing a gun or swinging a baseball bat at someone without touching them is considered assault. Battery occurs once the victim is physically harmed by the gun, bat, or even someone’s fists. We are prepared to assist clients whose cases involve:
- Sexual assault
- Gender and domestic violence
- Gun crimes
If you or someone you know has been the victim of assault or battery, it is important to ensure that you are aware of the possible benefits of pursuing a civil case. Contact a Chula Vista assault and battery attorney of Ritter & Associates by calling (619) 296-0123.
