CRIMINAL ASSUALTS

Criminal Defense

Assaults are very serious crimes because there is always a victim. Thus, these cases are prosecuted vigorously. Because of the nature of the crime, the stakes are extremely high. The degree of the assault often depends on the type of injury caused or intended and sometimes the person who was assaulted. There are three types of injury: bodily injury, significant bodily injury and serious bodily injury.

Bodily injury is any physical pain, illness or any impairment or physical condition. Significant bodily injury means bodily injury which creates a temporary loss of the function of any bodily member or organ or temporary loss of any one of the five senses. Serious bodily injury means bodily injury which creates a substantial risk of death or which causes serious, permanent disfigurement, or protracted loss or impairment of the function of any bodily member or organ. Thus, a good attorney attacks the nature of the injury in addition to all other defenses in every assault case.
