Charges of Assault With a Weapon

When an individual uses an object other than his or her hands in an attempt to injure another person, this act is considered assault with a dangerous instrument or deadly weapon. Such incidents of assault can result in serious injury, as opposed to just physical injury. These types of cases can be complicated to work through because they involve the question of whether the injury suffered can be deemed serious or not and whether the instrument used can be considered a deadly weapon or a dangerous instrument.

These questions will be based on the particular facts of your case. When addressing these questions, it is important to have an attorney on your side who is completely familiar with all assault laws. Throughout our combined four decades of experience, our assault attorneys in New York have handled numerous cases involving charges of assault with a weapon.
