Simply put, battery is violence or force used on another person that is inappropriate or offensive.

Although battery often goes hand-in-hand with assault, there are also situations in which only battery is committed; for example, attacking someone while they are unconscious or pushing someone unexpectedly from behind may not involve an explicit threat beforehand.

Battery often requires hospitalization and medical treatment. In cases of aggravated battery, in which serious bodily harm is caused, injuries may require longer and more expensive treatment.
