Offences Against The Person
Grievous Bodily Harm
Ashmans Solicitors’ areas of expertise include grievous bodily harm, also known as GBH, which falls under the banner of offences against the person.
If you’re being questioned or you are facing a grievous bodily harm charge, you will be rightly concerned about the impact of these charges on your life and that of your family.
It is important to recognise how serious this type of offence is, and the potential prison sentence you may have to serve if you are convicted. If you are subject to a grievous bodily harm charge, it is therefore really important to have a defence team that can ensure you are given the best possible advice as early on as possible. This could mean a reduction in the charges to actual bodily harm instead.
This will depend on a number of factors including
- the seriousness of the injuries, and
- the intent.
