Physical assault may be addressed through both criminal and civil actions. The difference between the two can be summarized by whose interest is primarily served. In a criminal action, the primary interest is that of the general public, and it involves criminal punishment. In a civil action, the primary interest is that of the victim, and it may involve monetary recovery.
Arizona assault law protects your right to control who or what comes into contact with your body. An assault is an intentional act or threat that causes a person to reasonably fear that he or she will be physically touched without their consent. Non-consensual contact can include hitting, throwing dangerous objects, sexual activity, or other threatening conduct. The law does not require that you were actually, physically contacted in order to bring a claim for assault.
If you were assaulted, you may have a right to recover monetary damages for your economic and non-economic losses. AWD LAW® can help you better understand your civil remedies.
