Assault vs. Battery Cases: The Differences

The legal description of assault and battery varies from state to state, sometimes used interchangeably. However, these two terms in California represent separate legal concepts and are regarded as individual cases of action.

According to California state law, assault is a deliberate act that instills fear of impending harm. In this situation, there doesn’t need to be physical contact for the victim to file a lawsuit for assault. For example, someone may raise their fists and threaten to hit you, creating the implication of physical contact without a physical touch.

On the other hand, California law regards battery as occurrences when actual physical contact results in bodily harm. The battery is a step from assault, as it involves physical contact instead of implied harm. Although nearly every battery case also entails assault, not every assault case entails battery.

What Isn’t Considered Assault And Battery?

In California, there are several instances where the law has ruled they can’t be considered assault and battery. These cases include:
  • Sports
  • Property owners defending their property
  • Parents, while disciplining children
  • An individual defending themself
  • A store owner, while defending against theft
However, while these scenarios aren’t always considered assault and battery, every scenario is different. So, if you believe you may have an assault and battery claim, contact our team of qualified attorneys to review your case’s circumstances. Having a skilled attorney at your side is essential, as navigating state law can be difficult, especially surrounding personal injury claims.

How Are Assault And Battery Cases Handled?

In many cases, assault and battery can result in two simultaneous lawsuits. The victim may choose to file a civil suit against the individual, while the state may decide to bring a criminal case, leading to simultaneous lawsuits.

The victim may file a civil lawsuit within the civil court to recover monetary damages as compensation for their injuries and losses that occurred due to the assault or battery. If the state chooses to bring a criminal case, the case is often handled at the same time as the civil case.

What Compensation Could I Receive For My Assault And Battery Injuries?

Assault and battery cases can produce physical injuries that an individual may carry for the rest of their life but can also result in severe physiological trauma. Injuries may range in severity, with common injuries including:

  • Lacerations
  • Bruises
  • Fractured bones
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Torn ligaments
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Death

If you or a loved one were a victim of assault or battery, you might be able to recover compensation for your injuries. With a skilled personal injury lawyer at your side, you could recover compensation covering various areas that the event may have impacted, including:

  • Medical expenses: Victims of assault and battery cases are entitled to full reimbursement of all associated medical bills and expenses, including immediate medical care (such as ER or urgent care), physical therapy, and prescription drug costs.
  • Pain and suffering: Although compensation for this particular category isn’t quantifiable to an exact dollar amount, victims may receive compensation for several things, including their physical pain, suffering, and inconvenience.
  • Lost wages or earnings: If you or your loved one missed work or lost income due to the assault or battery, you can recover your lost earnings through a civil lawsuit. With the help of an experienced lawyer, you may receive compensation for the damages associated with lost wages, future lost wages, and diminished earning capacity.
  • Punitive damages: These damages are isolated to extreme cases wherein the defendant acted violently with malice, reckless disregard for the safety of others, or oppression.
