What Constitutes Assault in California?

It’s important to understand that assault and battery aren’t synonymous crimes under state law. Assault is defined as “an attempt to use force or violence on someone else” (PC §240). On the other hand, battery is defined as “the actual use of force or violence on someone else” (PC §242). 

Is Physical Contact Necessary to Constitute Assault?

No. In addition to physical contact, threats or attempted acts of violence also constitute assault. For example, if someone threatened to hit you but never actually did, this still constitutes assault. However, keep in mind that there must be evidence of harm or injury resulting from the assault to successfully recover damages in a civil claim. 

Our Los Angeles assault lawyers at Carpenter & Zuckerman can help you meet the standard of proof in your case by establishing liability by a preponderance of the evidence—in other words, that the defendant is “more likely than not” legally responsible for your injuries.

    “I am very happy with the way they handled my case.”
    My car was rear ended, aggravating a bulging disc. Carpenter & Zuckerman set up all my doctor appointments and paid for everything up front. They were able to get me a settlement for both my injury case and property damage case. I am very happy with the way they handled my case.
