Domestic violence occurs within domestic relationships. This type of violence is not only referred to the violence between the two intimate partners but may also explain other household violence, for instance, violence towards children, parents or among siblings of the same household.
It is one of the most important as well as rising social issues in the US and around the world that needs to be addressed. Many nonprofit organizations work to prevent and provide maximum support to the victim of domestic violence. According to National Statistics Domestic Violence Fact Sheet, almost 20 people per minute fall victim to physical abuse by the intimate partner; that means in one year, there are more than 10 million men and women that are abused physically. Therefore, having a criminal defense attorney by your side can help you in this need of hour, and if needed can file a settlement claim against the sustained injuries.
