Civil battery is when someone has physically assaulted another person and caused them injury, whether by fist, foot, or weapon.
Civil battery cases are fairly uncommon, as most intentional acts against another person are typically not covered by insurance, which renders most defendants in a civil battery case uncollectable. However, this does not mean that you cannot recover against someone who causes you injury through their violent actions. Personal assets can be seized, including orders of garnishment against an offending batterer in particular types of cases.
