A Domestic Violence Expert Can Make It Clear How an Injury or Bruise Occurred
When someone is punched, kicked, slapped or otherwise harmed by an attacker striking them, the victim may be left with bruises, broken bones or worse. Domestic violence experts are used to reviewing the ugly evidence that can result following an incident like this. They'll be able to give their opinion that the bruises or other medical injuries were clearly caused by someone punching or hitting the victim. This will help you maintain control of the narrative and push back against any claims that you "fell" or are otherwise responsible for injuring yourself.
