Assault Defence

ABH Defence Lawyers

This is an offence under section 47 of the Offences Against the Person Act. This provides that a person is guilty of an offence if any assault results in injury causing actual bodily harm.

The definition of assault is quite wide. This usually involves people who have been involved in some form of fighting or altercation. It does not happen to be just kicks or punches at camp for example, but can include any injury caused by a person to another.

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).

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.
