Types of assault and battery claims in Utah
It’s important to understand the difference between assault, battery and aggravated assault in Utah. These three distinct crimes mean three very different things. That’s why it’s important to understand the distinctions when pursuing a legal case for assault or battery in Utah.
- Assault – Utah defines assault as an act that causes bodily harm to another person. However, simply threatening to hurt someone can also be considered assault.
- Battery – A legal term used to describe the act of physically attacking someone. Battery can also include sexual battery, in which a person intentionally touches someone in a sexual manner.
- Aggravated assault – This legal term describes an assault that results in serious bodily harm. Aggravated assault also often involves the use of a dangerous weapon, which is defined as any weapon which is capable of causing serious bodily harm or death.
Sexual assault and battery cases demand strong legal action. That’s why we want to meet with you and help you learn more about the legal options available to you.
