What is Common Assault Defence?

There are certain circumstances where the law permits an individual to cause harm to another person without that amounting to a criminal offence. This will usually include situations where a person has been acting in self-defence. Very often injury can be caused to somebody else by accident. If the court accepts this it may find you not guilty of assault.

We also come across a large number of situations where the assault just did not take place in the first place

In prosecution cases of this nature it is vital that a very proactive approach to defence is taken. See our Common Assault Defence page for more information.
