No one should live in fear of their partner or spouse. Victims of domestic violence are often unsure of how to safely escape violent domestic situations. Fortunately, victims of domestic abuse do not have to navigate the difficulties of their situation alone. The attorneys of the BB Law Group PLLC work to help Woodlands domestic violence victims learn about their legal rights as well as learn about how they can hold abusers legally accountable.
Examples of Domestic Assault and Battery
Though both assault and battery are characterized by violence, they are two different criminal offenses. For someone to be charged with battery, actual physical harm must be caused to the victim. However, the mere presence of a threat, written or otherwise, must be present to merit an assault charge. So while a threat can be enough for an assault charge, examples of battery might include:
- Hitting / kicking / shoving a domestic partner or spouse
- Hitting / kicking / shoving a child / roommate
- Pushing / aggressively brushing against a person in the home
- Using a weapon to cause harm
Any of the above examples can constitute domestic violence or abuse. Whether you have suffered from assault or battery, you should not be subjected to experiencing abuse of any kind. Fortunately, victims of abuse can often be helped by the knowledge of a skilled attorney.
