GBH, ABH & Assault
Need some help with an application?
Grevious Bodily Harm (GBH), Actual Bodily Harm (ABH) and Assault
Assault is a complex offence and is classified with varying degrees of severity. ABH and GBH have differing convictions and sentences. The Criminal Justice Act 1988, states that ABH and GBH are determined by:
- The level of foresight
- The motivation for the offence
- Any injuries inflicted
What to do if you are accused of ABH, GBH or Assault
Whilst many will try to claim self-defence, this is a highly specialist aspect of any case and requires a careful consideration of the circumstances. Provocation is not a defence to any allegation of ABH and GBH, but every one of the self-defence cases heard each year will have their own unique characteristics and occurrences.
