Assault and Battery

The Tison Law Firm focuses on Assault and Battery personal injury cases in Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach Counties, as well as others areas in South Florida.
Assault and battery are very common crimes that can be prosecuted. Victims of assault or batteries are legally entitled to bring a civil suit against the accused and seek compensation if they have suffered personal injury through the assault or battery.


The definitions of assault and battery are often confused. An assault is when a party or person attempts to physically harm another in a manner that makes the person or party being attacked feel they are in immediate danger. For an assault to happen, actual physical harm DOES NOT need to occur. Any threatening gesture that would cause any reasonable person to feel threatened may be classified as an assault. An assault occurs when one person tries to physically harm another in a way that makes the person under attack feel immediately threatened. If you or a loved one have been personally injured as the result of being a victim of assault, contact The Tison Law Firm of Fort Lauderdale today at (954)278-3290.


Battery is similar to assault, however it is when there is physical contact that is intended to harm a person or party. Another key characteristic necessary for an injury to be classified as battery is intention. Unintentional injury, no matter how negligent or severe, CANNOT be termed battery. If you or a loved one is suffering a personal injury as the result of an assault or battery, contact The Tison Law Firm of Fort Lauderdale today at (954)278-3290.
