Houston Assault Causing Bodily Injury Defense Attorneys

Under Texas law, even the experience of pain in itself may be considered to be a “bodily injury” in the context of assault charges. As such, alleged victims of assault do not need demonstrate that they were hurt in any way—that a bruise, scratch, or red mark resulted from the alleged contact—for assault charges to be filed. Assault charges, then, may result from highly subjective perceptions as to how an incident unfolded. Our Houston assault lawyers will challenge each and every aspect of the charges leveled against you in an effort to either reduce or altogether eliminate those charges.

Punishment for Assault Causing Bodily Injury Convictions in Houston

Typically charged as a Class A misdemeanor, assault may also be charged as a felony of the third degree. However, the consequences of even a misdemeanor conviction may be devastating for Houston residents, including but not limited to the following:

  • Up to a year of jail time
  • Up to $4,000 in fines
  • Community service

Our Houston legal team will work with you to build a comprehensive defense against your charges in order to avoid, or mitigate, these punishments.
