Aggravated Assault Lawyer in Toronto, Brampton, Orangeville and GTA
Aggravated Assault is a very serious charge and occurs when an accused person wounds, maims, disfigures or endangers the life of the complainant. The injuries that result are more substantial than that of an Assault, Assault with a Weapon or Assault Causing Bodily Harm. A wound is defined as a breaking of the skin. To maim a person is to injure another person so much that they are less able or unable to fight back. Disfiguring another person involves more than a temporary impairment of a person’s figure or appearance (scarring etc). Finally, to endanger someone’s life means there is a real risk to a person. Bodily harm is not necessary for this to occur.
