It’s always a good idea to document any injuries, bruises, cuts, or other evidence of a physical altercation after you’ve been charged with assault.
Whether that comes into play in the case depends entirely on the strategy that you and your attorneys develop to defend you.
In many courtroom situations, it makes sense to display evidence that you were the victim in a fight, but in others, it won’t play the same way.
So by all means, when someone injures you, make sure to document any injures and get medical help when it’s warranted.
When it comes to building a defense case in domestic violence situations, trust the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino to work with you and develop the strongest strategy for your case.
