Choosing a Dallas Assault Lawyer

Three Crimes Classified As Assault In Texas

Assaults happen, or are alleged to happen, in just about any situation — in a bar, at a sporting event, on the highway, in a parking lot, in a home or neighborhood. Sometimes they are attacks by one person on another, but more often they are complicated events in which both sides provoke one another. If you are choosing a Dallas assault lawyer, it helps to understand the potential charges you may be accused of.

In Class A assault, all a prosecutor has to prove is that the altercation resulted in the other person feeling pain. Many assault cases arise from incidents involving a slap or bumping into the other person. But simple actions can lead to a lot of legal hurt and up to a year in jail.

What Do My Assault Charges Mean?

Aggravated assault requires serious bodily injury, which can lead to 20 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. Serious bodily injury that results in a significant risk of death, disfigurement or lasting impairment of some bodily function must be proven.

Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon means that a weapon was involved: a knife, a gun, a car, a hockey stick, anything that might cause serious injury.
