Attempted Assault Questions

What is attempted assault? When an individual intentionally tries to assault another person and tries to cause him/her physical and mental harm, it may be called attempted assault. It is important for people to know their rights and privileges in an attempted assault case. It may not always be easy to find information about attempted assault. Given below are popular questions about attempted assault that are asked by people.

Can an individual get a restraining order extended against a person for attempted assault?

An individual may be able to get a restraining order against a person for attempted assault extended if the person tries to contact him/her after the restraining order has been obtained. If the individual moves to a different state and the accused tries to contact him/her in the new state, he/she may also apply for a restraining order in the new state.

What can an individual do if he/she was kicked by a police officer after being handcuffed?

If an individual was kicked by a police officer after being handcuffed, he/she may file a lawsuit against the officer for attempted assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The hearing may either be decided by a judge or a jury if either party requests for a jury trial.

Under what circumstances can an individual request a restraining order against someone?

An individual may request for a restraining order against someone if he/she has attempted to either verbally or physically assault the individual and he/she feels that he/she is at risk of physical injury from this person.

Can an individual be sued for intentionally blowing his/her horn and scaring a horse and endangering the life of the rider?

The laws regarding traffic and vehicle violations may differ from state to state in the US. In some states like Alabama, an individual may be sued for a number of things like attempted assault, attempted battery, cruelty towards animals and reckless driving. If the individual can provide sufficient proof of the incident, he/she may take criminal action against the accused person.

What can an individual do if he/she tried to defend himself/herself and has been sued for attempted assault and battery?

If an individual attacked another person for self defense, the only two claims that he/she may be sued for are attempted assault and battery. The individual may have a chance of winning both these suits as he/she can argue that what he/she did was for self defense. Also, if the person who has filed the lawsuit has a history of assault and scaring the individual in the past, the court may dismiss his/her lawsuit against the individual

If an individual attempted to assault another person, but hurt a third party instead, would he/she be liable to the third party’s injuries?

If an individual hurts a third party in his/her attempt to assault someone, he/she may be responsible for the third party’s injuries. If the person whom he/she attempted to assault does not get injured, the individual may not have any liabilities towards him/her. However, he/she may be liable towards the third party.

Being a victim of attempted assault can be a traumatizing experience. Not knowing what to do and what action to take against the person who attempted the assault can be even more frustrating. The laws and rules regarding attempted assault may be different in different parts of the USA. It may not always be practical for you to hire an attorney to get a few answers about attempted assault in your respective state. In such a situation, you can always ask an Expert for information on attempted assault.

Recent Attempted Assault Questions

  • I need to know my rights and obligations associated with

    I need to know my rights and obligations associated with toxic mold that was discovered in our office building. We are a medical clinic. A lab report received on Friday showed significant toxic black mold throughout the suite. The mold DID NOT ORIGINATE
    within our office and was caused by prior leaking exterior windows. It was also found that the landlord attempted to cover up the mold and did not inform us of the prior mold when we entered into the lease. We gave a copy of the mold report to the landlord
    who moved us out and into a different space while he determined what he would do about this. We have 3 contract employees who feel ill and we have sent them to have blood test for mold. We do not have the lab results back yet. We told the landlord we needed
    to file a claim with his insurance company. He stated he was thinking he would just pay cash but appears to be evasive and non-committal on these payments and is dragging his feet on the repairs. Meanwhile we are operating in a make-shift facility and have
    increased cost, however, our damages are not that extensive yet. Here are my questions: 1. If these employees have significant injuries or sue for damages, who's insurance company is responsible? 2. We will require assurance that the facility is completely
    mold free and safe by having mold tests done again after the work is completed. We are also concerned he will not hire a professional company to restore the facility and will do this work as cheaply as possible. If we refuse to move back in because our patients
    and/or employees are not comfortable being in the facility or we are not satisfied with the repairs, what is our recourse? 3. He moved us into the other space because of the mold, if we refuse to back into our suite, can he evict us from the temporary space?
    Are we obligated to return to the facility? 4. Can we move out of his building all together and sue him for damages, relocation costs, etc? 5. Do we have a duty to inform prior employees, patients, or anyone else who was in our facility? 6. If we lose customers
    because they are upset about the mold exposure, can we sue the landlord for these damages?
  • I live in Old Hickory, TN (Davidson County) On 10/04/14

    I live in Old Hickory, TN (Davidson County)
    On 10/04/14 (over 2 months ago) my wife's car was hitting by the ball-mount of somebody truck after he backed up while both of them were waiting in red traffic light, (although she honked to stop him from backing up, but he didn't stop and hit her car)
    The person truck didn't have any damage, but the wife’s car had a dent in the front bumper, they got out of cars and he wrote his name and phone number in a paper, but my wife didn't call a police. She called our insurance company and got a claim number.
    After about 3 weeks, our insurance sent a letter saying:
    1- “you don't have collision coverage" because I have liability insurance only and also "the information provided was for our records only"
    2- The person who hit her car never answers his phone & also our insurance talk to his insurance and they will contact you (also I got a claim number from his insurance company)
    Last week his insurance sent me a letter saying:
    “I called your wife on the line that was provided on 11/26/2014 and advised that since you do not have any supporting evidence – outside witnesses, surveillance or police report made at the time of the accident, as well as the fact that at initial contact it was reported by you that our insured was driving a truck when it was actually a sedan, also the statement provided by our insured that they were rear ended by you, I am siding with my insured and we are not accepting liability.
    I have 3 things about what happened:
    1- if it is not his fault, why he provided his information name & address & phone number!!
    2- Sedan most likely doesn't have a ball mount, so he was driving truck but I think he has more that one car (may be it's his house member car and he want to be not liable that's why he's saying he wasn't drive a truck)
    3- The other car insurance didn't want to pay to fix my wife’s car, after they made sure there is no witnesses, surveillance or police report
    So What can I do now?
    Is it late to call a police to do a report? Or even If I call the police, will not do a report because it’s over 2 months now? I mean: There is any time frame by law to report accident?
