Q
What does bodily injury mean

A

    In Texas bodily injury is defined as physical pain, illness, or any impairment of physical condition.  As you can tell that definition is very broad because the words “physical pain” applies to, among other things, a hit, a slap, a punch, a kick, grabbing someone with a tight grasp.  It is important because in Texas a person commits an Assault if they intentionally, knowingly or recklessly cause physical pain to another person.
