Corporal Injury in California is closely related to domestic abuse laws. It’s defined as inflicting serious bodily injury on a current or former partner, spouse, or parent of a child.
A few examples include hitting, punching or biting a partner. The factors of the crime include that the accused deliberately inflicted this bodily injury, and the wound was visible and or traumatic.
Examples of visible corporal injury wounds include redness, swelling or bruising.
Examples of traumatic corporal injury wounds include a fractured bone, a coma or concussion, or loss of limb.
A few defenses include made-up accusations, or it could be a case of self defense. In addition, the injury could have been accidental instead of intentional.
