Simple vs. felony assault

There are two different classifications for assault and both are serious. You should call an assault lawyer if you're facing charges for:

  2. Aggravated assault - This is a felony that occurs when someone intentionally causes or attempts to cause serious harm to another person. The victim may have broken bones or require hospitalization.
