If you are the victim of an assault in California causing bodily injury or an assault causing bodily injury to a family member, Johnson Attorneys Group is here to help. Our first priority is to take care of your health and find the resources you need to recover from your injuries. We then use the legal process to seek compensation for any physical, financial and emotional losses you suffered as a result of the assault.
What is Assault Bodily Injury?
According to Chapter 9 of the California Penal Code, an assault is described as “an unlawful attempt, coupled with a present ability, to commit a violent injury.”
A simple assault occurs when another person threatens to cause harm and the intended victim believes the assailant has the ability to carry out the threat, or where the injuries suffered are relatively minor.
An aggravated assault is when there is a weapon involved, or there is the intent of a more serious crime occurring. Assault with a deadly weapon involves the use of an object that can cause serious injury or death.
During the fiscal year of 2014-15, the California Court Statistics Report revealed that there were 192,761 civil cases with damages greater than $25,000, 375,178 with limited damages of less than $25,000, and 150,382 small claims cases.
