Getting into a fight could be more serious than you thought

Posted by Bulldog Law | Apr 26, 2023 | 0 Comments

Many people consider a physical altercation to be a minor event. No weapons are being used. It might've just been pushing and shoving, or maybe someone even threw a punch. Maybe emotions just got out of control.

All of this may be true, but it's important to remember that these interactions can still be very serious. Don't assume that a physical fight is minor just because there weren't aggravating factors, such as the use of a weapon. It could have serious ramifications.

Serious head injuries

What sometimes happens is that people will get into a fight and someone will be knocked out. When they fall, they strike their head on the concrete. This could happen on a sidewalk outside of a bar, for example, or in a parking lot.

Even though only one punch was thrown, this can still lead to severe head and brain injuries. In fact, striking your head on the concrete can be fatal. It can lead to bleeding around the brain, skull fractures and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

That's why you need to be very careful about using physical force. You may never have assumed that throwing a single punch could lead to a fatality, but it can and does happen. This means that getting into that pushing match outside of the bar could be far more serious than you ever anticipated.

What options do you have?

If you do find yourself in this position and are facing charges, then it's important for you to understand all of your criminal defense options. You need to know what steps to take to protect your future.
