Bodily Harm

The criminal offence of bodily harm can encompass both psychological and physical injuries to health. These crimes can take place in any conceivable situation. Nevertheless, they frequently occur in the immediate social context. In these cases, it is referred to as “domestic violence”.  Victims frequently experience such violence as serious intrusions into their person. In addition to physical injuries, they can also frequently cause anxiety or even significant traumatic injury.
