Assault and offences of violence
Have you been arrested on suspicion of assaultIng somebody? Offences involving alleged violence increase in their seriousness from common assault to causing grievous bodily harm. If you are under investigation by the police then it is very important to be able to access advice and representation from expert solicitors specialising in allegations of assault with a history of dealing with these cases. You may need to be interviewed at the police station or you might have been asked to attend a Magistrates Court because you have been charged with an offence alleging violence.
Types of assault offence
- Common assault
- Assault occasioning actual bodily harm
