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

  • October 1, 2014 Involved in serious bike accident requiring

    October 1, 2014 Involved in serious bike accident requiring two surgeries and 6-day hospital stay, covered by military. The accident happened in Va Beach while on vacation, using a 2-person rental bike. Was taken to the local ER by ambulance and after 3 CT scans and layered stitching on my face, I was discharged. A few days later I was unable to breathe through my nose, and 9 days after the accident we went to the ER at Ft. Belvoir, in Alexandria, near our home.
    They did a contrast Ct scan and found my nose was broken with a significant amount of infection and called in their ENT surgeon to perform surgery immediately. 2 days in the ICU and the surgery needed to be repeated, with a total of 6 days hospital stay, and discharged with limited activity along with recovery the remainder of October.
    When we initially contacted the bike rental's insurance company, we were told that all expenses would be covered, as well as lost wages at work for October. We kept every single receipt needed for other expenses incurred, from chiropractic to physical therapy care, and we estimated a claim of $12,000 - $15,000. We were then contacted by another representative of the insurance company stating that their company was only liable for $5000, as the accident occurred on municipal property.
    We did not include any damages for pain/suffering or any unreasonable expenses, trying to make this an easy matter to resolve. We are curious as to whether we should employ a lawyer to represent us for the remainder of the claim or just let it go. Thank you.
  • Who might be convicted of the what crimes if the patient died

    Who might be convicted of the what crimes if the patient died from the drugs and i was able to testify to all that i have said earlier including that family members knew the danger of what they were doing? considering i had a phone conversation with a family member (not recorded) completely explaining the dangers of the medications due to my knowledge of the medication types. what penalties would any possible crimes carry?
  • is it legal for family members to administer these medications

    is it legal for family members to administer these medications to the patient instead of the nurse? in a dose they admitted they had no knowledge of. what if one had informed these family members of the dangers of these medications especially in combination ( considering one had been prescribed benzodiazepines often before and also opiod painkillers). would i need to record a conversation? or would my word be good enough to prove anything?
