Injuries Caused by Physical Assault and Battery

Assault and battery charges are often filed against individuals who strike another person and may lead to a criminal trial. The standard of guilt that the prosecution must prove in a criminal trial is “beyond a reasonable doubt,” which may mean that an assault victim does not receive the justice that he or she deserves. However, a civil lawsuit has a lower burden of proof and may result in the awarding of financial compensation directly to the victim.

If you have been the victim of assault and battery, then it is likely that you have not only been forced to contend with physical pain but also with medical bills and emotional trauma.
