Assault And Battery
Assault and battery are two intentional torts that can be the subject of a personal injury lawsuit. They are two separate crimes, but assault and battery often occur together. In assault and battery cases, the victims sue the perpetrator for civil damages. Assault is defined as the act that causes a fear of imminent harmful or offensive touching. However, episodes of assault can also occur without any kind of physical contact. Battery is defined as the act of intentional physical contact. Acts of offensive touching are also classified as battery where the victim has not given consent to be touched.
