Sierra Vista Personal Injury Attorney
Handling Cases of Physical Assault
If you have been injured by another party in a physical assault, you may have a personal injury case. In an assault, bodily harm is threatened coupled with an ability to cause that harm. The act required for an assault is an overt one. Aggravated assault, punishable as a felony, occurs when the offender intends to do more than frighten his or her victim. It is usually accompanied by an intention to kill, rob, or rape the victim. Assault with a dangerous weapon may be categorized as aggravated assault if the offender intends to cause serious harm.
