Assault & Battery - E-Newsletter January 20, 2010


Assault & Battery

Two common types of personal injury torts are assault and battery. A battery is often confused with an assault, and the two terms are often intermingled and perceived as one tort. In actuality, they are two separate torts and must be regarded as such. An assault is an act that creates a reasonable apprehension of an imminent battery. A battery, in turn, is the intentional and unpermitted physical contact with another by either an individual or an agency set in motion by an individual.
