How is Assault Committed

Unlawful, violent interaction that results in an injury will be considered an assault in most scenarios. When a person is harmed or injured without due cause such as posing an imminent threat, this becomes assault, even if negligent. The specifics of the situation and eye witness testimony are often crucial in trying an assault case.
