Criminal law firm in Portland at Mark C. Cogan, P.C.


Violent crimes, including mistreatment, are probably the most common crimes in criminal law. Violent crimes range from simple abuse to outright violence, severe abuse, and even manslaughter or murder. Violent crime involves the intentional infliction of pain and/or injury. Depending on the severity of the abuse, the severity of the injury to the victim and the degree of guilt, you may have a fine, community service or imprisonment. In the event that you have been harmed, you may need to contact a Portland assault attorney.


This is the case if you intentionally cause serious physical injury. They speak of serious physical injury if there is no prospect of full recovery from the injury, or if the serious abuse led to the victim being unable to work. It may be that there is simple mistreatment with serious physical injury. In that Portland case, there was no intention of inflicting serious physical injury. This can be the case if a fight takes place where one blow causes such physical damage that the victim becomes invalid.
