Personal injury law defines assault as an intentional word or act that is meant to cause a reasonable anticipation that someone means to make harmful contact, or hurt you, and has the apparent ability to do so. An assault claim does not require that actual harm was delivered – just the intent or threat to do harm has to be proven.
Bullying has been in the media quite often recently, and meets the criteria of intent to do harm. It is not an act that can be taken lightly, and often there are very real and negative consequences that occur subsequent to bullying or other assault injuries.
