What Is the Difference Between Assault and Battery?

Assault and battery are often charged in conjunction with each other; however, there is an important distinction between the two crimes. While battery involves the act of physically hurting or harming someone, assault is a legal term used to describe the plan or intention of hurting someone else.

Why people choose the Law Offices of David Sloane:

  • A history of satisfied clients
  • Representation backed by 20+ years of legal experience
  • Free case evaluations
  • A former police lieutenant fighting for you

These two crimes are usually prosecuted jointly and have come to generally describe the act of inflicting physical harm on another person. Whether you were accused of assault and battery for a bar fight, an alleged "road rage" incident, or for an act of self-defense, you deserve strong advocacy from an attorney who can look out for you and who understands the importance of the setting and motivating factors involved in the incident.

Don’t face these charges alone. To begin building your defense today, call (817) 349-7118.
