What is ABH (Actual Bodily Harm) in the UK according to the Offences Against the Person Act 1861?
ABH is a criminal offence contrary to Section 47 of Offences Against the Person Act. Assaults that occasion actual bodily harm cause injuries that aren’t seriously harmful and for this reason, ABH is considered a less serious offence than GBH (grievous bodily harm).
There are legal guidelines and tests that provide a basis for determining whether an injury should be deemed severe. This will usually be at the discretion of the prosecutors or an investigating police officer.
Any injury that interferes with the health or comfort of a victim can be defined as ABH, such as bruises, scratches or bite marks. ‘Actual’ harm refers to the notable consequences caused by an assault, meaning physical and psychological injuries need only be of minimal detriment to health, but this must be proven.
