When a person intentionally touches or attacks another person causing physical pain or injury or emotional distress, then the case is deemed to be that of assault and battery. Battery means ‘to beat’ derived from the Latin word batture.
Legally speaking, battery occurs when there is intentional physical contact through force or without the consent of the victim. Unintentional harm can be considered an assault, but when harm is perpetrated with intent-to-harm, then it is classified as battery.
Other common examples of battery include throwing an object which hits another person, or knocking a tray of food out of a person’s hands.
When a person is injured due to another's intentional behavior, the victim has the right to demand compensation. It is every person’s duty to act with reasonable care towards others and to show them the respect they deserve. When a person does not uphold this duty, legal repercussions may arise for injury caused.
