Assault, Battery, and Mayhem are legal terms. They involve some of the lowest form of behavior a member of a civil society has to offer and typically result in the worst types of injuries. An assault is not only a tortious act, it is often used in combination with a threat to make a battery. A battery can be a harmful or offensive contact intentionally or recklessly done. But, Mayhem is not exactly what you think since the common law defines it as the ripping, tearing, or dismemberment of a relevant body part from a living human being.
Examples of mayhem include depriving another person of a body part or injuring them to the point where a hand, ear, or leg becomes permanently useless. The Law Office of Joseph M.
