Section 18 Assault Defence Lawyers Locations
Here at Professional Defence Lawyers we are experienced in advising and defending Section 18 Assault cases throughout the UK.
Where an assault has taken place which has caused a far more serious injury then a person will face a prosecution for wounding causing Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH).
There are two specific offences as follows:
- Wounding causing grievous bodily harm with the intent
- Wounding causing grievous bodily harm with no specific intent to cause grievous harm
These are more serious assaults where a more serious injury has been caused which will usually involve cuts and broken bones or other serious physical harm.
