Assault and battery cases can arise from neighbor disputes, barroom brawls, road-rage incidents, or any other conflict between two or more individuals. Sometimes, these incidents involve serious injuries to both the accused and the alleged victim, and other times there are no injuries at all. In many circumstances self-defense or mutual combat is warranted and provides for a viable defense.
