Being Verbally Threatened? These 2 Pieces of Evidence Could Save You!

What is verbal assault?

Verbal assault refers to using language to threaten or intimidate others. It is a form of abuse that can cause both physical and psychological harm to the victim. If you are experiencing verbal assault, it is essential to take steps to protect yourself.

How to prove verbal assault?

Proving verbal assault can be challenging. While you may have many stories to tell the police and claim that the other person had motives, it may not necessarily be enough evidence for the police to prosecute the offender. Even if the police decide to press charges, there may not be sufficient evidence to convict the person.

Therefore, to prove verbal assault, you will need both physical evidence and testimonies from witnesses.

Here is more information on how to collect evidence of verbal assault:

  1. Document the incidents: After being verbally assaulted, try to record the details of the events as soon as possible. This includes the date, time, location of the incident, what happened, and what the assailant said. You can also document the assailant’s facial expressions and body language.

  2. Seek witnesses: If there were other people who witnessed the incident, ask them for their testimonies. Witnesses can provide valuable evidence to help establish that you were verbally assaulted.

  3. Collect physical evidence: If the assailant left behind any physical evidence, such as recordings, text messages, or photographs, collect them. These pieces of evidence can support your claim that the incident occurred.

  4. Report to the police: If you have been verbally assaulted, it is advisable to report the incident to the police. Even if immediate action may not be taken, they can investigate the matter and gather evidence.

  5. Seek legal assistance: If you have been verbally assaulted, you may need to seek legal assistance. A lawyer can help you understand your legal rights and protect your interests
