What are common forms of assault and battery defenses?

The defenses available to the defendant in the case of an assault and battery case are heavily dependent on the circumstances of the case. Keeping in mind the circumstances of a general assault and battery charge these are the forms of defenses available:

How is liability determined in a premises liability case?

When entering a property a person has a reasonable expectation not to be the victim of accidents or injuries due to the premises thus it is the responsibility of the owner to maintain reasonable safety standards for the premises. The determination of liability varies depending upon the state that's because different states have different standards and rules.

Lodi car accident leaves one man dead

An accident that happened on Highway 99 in Lodi has left one man dead. A little after noon on a recent February day, a 37-year-old man was heading north in a 2001 Chevy truck when another Chevy truck, a 2005, came up behind him and hit the trailer he was hauling. The impact caused the trailer to fishtail, which made the man lose control of his vehicle.

Protect yourself from medication errors

In a perfect world, you could trust your health care professional and pharmacist to always get things right. Unfortunately, things do not always go that way and patients suffer from the consequences. Medical errors, including medication errors, are the third leading cause of death in the United States, coming in only behind cancer and heart disease. This statistic shows this is a serious problem for American patients, and you should be aware of ways to protect yourself from these mistakes.

Elements of a battery charge

The difference between assault and battery can be confusing, so let's take a look at some of the finer details of these two charges. Any unlawful physical contact can be considered battery. The contact has to be threatening for the victim. The use of force against another person without their consent may also be regarded as battery. However, intent is a very important part of battery charges. The prosecution must establish intent in order to get a guilty verdict in battery cases. However, you may also face battery charges even if you had no ill intentions.
