Intentional Harm To A Person Or Property

Personal injury may be caused by a person acting with the deliberate intent to injure another person. This kind of conduct may be referred to as "malicious," "purposeful," or "knowingly." A person who acts intentionally and causes harm as a result will be liable for the harm caused. When someone intentionally harms another person or his or her property, an intentional tort is committed. In general, intentional torts can be classified into two groups: intentional torts against people and intentional torts against property. Among the most common intentional torts that are encountered are the following:

   Assault
   Battery
   False Imprisonment
   Infliction of Distress
   Fraud/Misrepresentation
   Trespass
   Trespass to Chattels
   Conversion

In all matters involving personal injury it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the incident in question, and to file a lawsuit prior to the deadline imposed by the statute of limitations. If you or a loved one is a victim of personal injuries, call Law Office of Donald P. Edwards now at 404-526-8866 or CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT A SIMPLE CASE FORM. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a contingent fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds. Don’t delay! You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries, but a lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations expires.


The above is not legal advice. That can only come from a qualified attorney who is familiar with all the facts and circumstances of a particular, specific case and the relevant law. See Terms of Use.
