Imperial Beach Assault & Battery Lawyers
It is a common misconception that the terms “assault” and “battery” are synonymous with one another and, therefore, are interchangeable in the field of law. Both these terms cover a wide range of actions, ranging in severity. And, although assault and battery can include actions such as bullying on the playground, they can also include serious actions that could lead to severe injuries or even death. It is important to understand the differences between these two actions. Where assault generally involves threats of violence or violent actions, battery refers to the actual action – generally a physical attack of some kind.
