What are the different types of Assault we can help with?

Our expertise extends across the spectrum of assault charges, ranging from physical altercations to verbal threats. At Faraj Defence Lawyers, we recognize the complexity of assault cases and understand that each instance requires meticulous review to tailor a defence strategy suited to the specific nature of the alleged offence. 

We help with the following Assault Offences:

Common Assault Offences

Section 61 of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW) makes common assault an offence, “whoever assaults any person although not occasioning actual bodily harm, shall be liable to imprisonment for 2 years”. Common Assault encompasses a broad category of offences where an individual intentionally causes another person to fear immediate physical harm. 

This offence doesn’t necessarily involve physical contact but is centred on the creation of apprehension or fear. If you find yourself or anyone you know charged with the offence of Common Assault, it is crucial to seek immediate legal guidance from our expert Common Assault Lawyer.

Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm Offences

Assault occasioning actual bodily harm, prohibited under Section 59 of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW), involves intentionally causing physical harm that extends beyond mere discomfort or transient pain. This offence requires proof of actual injury or harm inflicted upon the victim. This charge involves intentional actions resulting in tangible harm, such as injuries requiring medical attention. 

Given the gravity of the consequences, including potential long-term physical and emotional effects on the victim, the legal system treats this offence with significant severity. If you find yourself facing charges under Section 59, it is imperative to consult our Assault Lawyers promptly and seek legal guidance and defence.

Assault Causing Grievous Bodily Harm

Section 33 of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW), “intent to cause grievous bodily harm, A person who, wounds any person or causes grievous bodily harm to any person”. This charge involves intentionally inflicting severe injuries that result in significant harm or permanent damage to the victim. Given the severity of the consequences and the potential life-altering impact on the injured party, this offence is treated with the utmost harshness in the legal system. If you find yourself accused of assault causing grievous bodily harm, it is imperative to seek immediate legal guidance. Grievous bodily harm is the ‘permanent or serious disfiguring of a person’, anybody who causes this can be charged with what's known as Assault causing Grievous Bodily Harm, an offence under

Assaulting Police

Assaulting police officers, as outlined in Section 60 of the Crimes Act, is a particularly serious offence due to the inherent risks associated with targeting law enforcement officials. Section 60 covers situations where individuals intentionally assault, resist, or hinder police officers in the execution of their duties. Given the critical role that law enforcement plays in maintaining public safety, assaulting police is treated with significant severity within the legal system. Accusations of assaulting police demand immediate legal attention. If you find yourself facing such charges, it is crucial to seek guidance from our specialised lawyers for assaulting police.
