Elements in a Battery Case

Battery laws exist to protect people from physical harm perpetrated by another. It recognizes that we all have a right to have our bodies protected from harm and offensiveness. The three basic elements of battery are:

  • An act occurred
  • There was intent to cause harmful or offensive contact
  • Harmful or offensive contact occurred

Battery charges can result if the act led to the victim’s physical injury, such as broken bones, cuts or burns. But there does not have to be a physical injury for battery to have occurred. Acts that result in emotional or mental trauma, such as groping or spitting on someone, are also considered battery.

Other forms of battery include:

  • Criminal negligence, in which someone is harmed because of a failure to act
  • Harming or offending someone without direct bodily contact, such as knocking a glass out of someone’s hand
  • Physical child abuse
  • Spousal abuse
  • Domestic battery
