Understanding the Difference Between Assault & Battery

Battery is the intentional use of violence or force against another person. Assault is the unlawful intent and attempts to commit harm against another, whether or not an action was taken. The person accused must have had a present ability to commit the harm they were threatening or attempting. In some cases, a person could be convicted of assault even if they never made physical contact with the accuser, so long as they caused a fear of serious bodily harm. Assault can be charged as aggravated assault or assault with a deadly weapon, depending on the circumstances.

A few factors that may be taken into consideration include:

  • Whether a weapon was used
  • How the weapon was used
  • How severely the victim was injured

Effective Defense Strategies for Assault & Battery

At Corley Legal, we understand that there are many situations which could lead to false or improper assault or battery charges. In certain cases, a charge could arise as a result of self-defense or where you were protecting another person. Someone else could have seen the altercation and called the police, which lead to the charges against you. Regardless of the circumstances or the severity of the charges you are facing, we will relentlessly fight for your rights and freedom.

We understand that this is a confusing and scary time. Call our San Antonio assault and battery lawyer at (210) 361-7322 to discuss your options. We offer free consultations.
