Grievous Bodily Harm

Grievous bodily harm is a very serious example of an assault, and although the actions of the defendant may not be viewed as being that substantial, the injuries sustained by the victim give rise to the serious penalties imposed on people charged with this offence. Grievous bodily harm occurs in circumstances where the injuries sustained are so severe that they could result in serious injury, disfigurement, or death if the victim was not provided medical treatment.

The definition of what constitutes grievous bodily harm is often subject to expert medical opinion, and matters of this nature are often contested on difference of opinion between experts. Russo Lawyers has successfully defended a large number of clients through engaging reliable, accurate, and well-regarded opinion of medical experts.
