Categories of Assault Cases


Assault cases are commonly understood when the offender intentionally or irresponsibly caused apprehension of unlawful personal violence to a victim. The victim must anticipate that the offender will make personal violence for it to be categorized as an assault. This includes threats, threats using weapons, and other similar attacks. Others can ignore a simple threat but these assaults against you can be grave and deadly. These small crimes must not be neglected.

For each offense committed you are categorized into specific assault case types:

Assault – It is a crime of violence against one another. These are typically a threat of injury that can cause harm to the other. It can be a verbal threat that would put the complainant in an uncomfortable state.

Assault with a deadly weapon – Threats can also include deadly weapons such as a knife, gun, or any object that can cause pain.

Aggravated Battery – This assault case is filed when a deadly weapon injures the victim.

Assaults with battery – Verbal threats are followed by bodily injury and the use of physical force.

Battery – This type of assault case excludes a verbal threat. The battery is an action using physical force to cause pain and injury.

Sexual Assault and Battery – This crime involves verbal threat and physical force against another person to perform sexual acts without consent.

Domestic Assault and Battery – This type of assault happens inside the home where a family member is threatened and beaten by another family member.

If you have been assaulted, you must know your right. Some may just let these threats pass. But no matter the charge of these threats, the case can still be very serious. You must report the incident when assaults are made against you.

When assaults are filed, the police will require you for medical documentation when the battery is involved. There are Assault Lawyers who can defend you in these serious cases. They will give legal advice on how to solve such cases.

    I would like to seek for legal advise regarding a case I will be filing to Sharjah court. My case happenedin Al Nahda, sharjah regarding an assault from a sharjah taxi driver. It is just an ordinary argument which led to fight and I was pulled and the driver struct me several times in the face till my eyebrow got wounded and bled during this assault I was wearing my eye glasses and it was removed during the punch he throwed at me. The instance also hitted my wife as she tries to calm down the driver in between us. Medical and police report was made in Sharjah. I would like to seek on the procedures for filing this case and the legalities in doing so.

    Hope for your prompt response,

    Thanks & regards,

    I have 1 colleague in the company and she is not doing her job properly. actually we have some personal issues but she is mixing personal issues to work issues. Now she is accusing me of taking the works personally and i am making problems for her which is not true. She told me that she knows i can let her out of the company but she will make sure that something bad will happen to me and i will regret that i put her here in our company. In this case, can i go to the police and tell them about this. i dont have written evidence because it was said directly on my face. I want to make sure that i will be safe everywhere in or out of the office.

    I want to enquire about carrying a law suit against a bank.
    I am delayed on my bank payments due to a delay in bonus payment from my company – I explained that I would make the pending card payment to the bank in the course of the week but they keep calling. Several employees multiple times each day. I stopped answering the calls and one of the employees sends me a text saying “pay or else your details will be shared with Etihad Bureau for black listing”
    That sounds like a threat and I am not taking it too well.
    What’s the law suit related to written threats?

    My manager threatened to slap me in front of 20 other staff if I don’t submit two files the next day. He called me a bad word for not drinking alcohol in one of the office parties. He also told another employer to hit me when I gave a wrong answered during training questions and answers session. He told me to submit the files on Thursday. I am scared to go to office. I am on probation now. I don’t know what to do after spending so much on visa and traveling expenses I don’t have money to give the company if I’m terminated.

    I’m in a sharing flat. Flatmate is inviting friends in our flat to drink, sing a and they are very noisy. If I will call police while they are having a party, i’m concern of other flatmates as I have read that since sharing flat is illegal, all people inside the flat will be arrested. is it true? I already talked to this person but this person came to me after 4 days shouting and pointing the finger in my face.

    My friend had to do a research paper on assault and I was wondering about the basics of it all. I appreciate you mentioning that assault doesn’t have to be physical. This is something that I didn’t realize before and it’s given me a lot to think about.
