Some cases of battery are more obvious than others. An all-out bar brawl, resulting in broken bones and hospital stays is much easier to identify as battery than a simple shove. But both of these examples demonstrate cases of battery. The seasoned lawyers at Ferraro Law Group have experience in battery cases of all degrees. Put this experience to work for you, and fight for a case result in your favor.
Battery is legally defined as:
● An intentional or unwanted touching
● That results in bodily injury
Keep in mind the bodily injury caused by the touching does not necessarily have to be visible. It can be enough for an alleged victim to state they were touched, or the touching hurt them. Unfortunately, it can be enough for the victim to give testimony about the incident, and not provide any physical evidence, to support a conviction for battery. And if there are serious injuries, the charge can be upgraded to aggravated battery. Any of these types of convictions interfere with your life, because a conviction for battery can carry up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.00. Protect your freedom and your pocketbook by putting forth a serious defense.
