Swedish term or phrase: Överfallsskada
Term used in an insurance document:

Med invaliditet menas att överfallsskadan medför bestående nedsättning av kroppsfunktionen (medicinsk invaliditet) eller att arbetsförmågan för framtiden är bestående nedsatt med minst 50 % till följd av skadan(ekonomisk invaliditet).

Hänsyn ska endast tas till nedsättning av sådan arbetsförmåga som utnyttjades omedelbart före överfallsskadan och som sannolikt skulle ha utnyttjats om arbetsoförmågan inte förlorats.

Om överfallsskadan medför att den försäkrades kroppsfunktion väsentligt försämras eller att den försäkrade förlorar ytterligare arbetsförmåga efter att Trygg-Hansa tagit slutlig ställning till den försäkrades rätt till ersättning med anledning av överfallsskadan, har den försäkrade rätt att på grund av de nya omständigheterna få invaliditetsgraden omprövad.

Assault injury

Överfall is assault and skada is injury so it should be Assault injury.

Example sentence(s):
  • The assault injury resulted in lasting reduction of bodily functions.

Reference: assault and battery

Reference information:
I'm pretty sure the US distinguishes these two terms as defined in the reference. That is, 'battery' is when you cause physical injury. And 'olaga hot' is assault. A lot of folks get this wrong.

A look under 'Specific offences' gives and explanation where this reference combines them into 'common assault' -- "An offence of Common Assault is committed when a person either assaults another person or commits a battery."

"An assault is committed when a person intentionally or recklessly causes another to apprehend the immediate infliction of unlawful force.

A battery is committed when a person intentionally and recklessly applies unlawful force to another."
