Intentional Torts

An intentional tort occurs when another person intends to cause harm, physical or emotional, to you. This can be done through defamation, assault, battery, fraud, trespassing, intentional infliction of emotional distress or false arrest/imprisonment. Sometimes, it is not obvious that someone would intentionally cause you harm that is not physical. A negligent tort occurs due to the carelessness of another person. Think of getting into a car accident because of a distracted driver. It is important that there is proof of intention to cause harm in order for the case to be an intentional tort. Having an experienced intentional tort attorney from Spigelman & Cecere, LLC in Rockville, Maryland can help you determine if intent is present and how to move forward with your case.

Some intentional torts are also considered to be a criminal matter, such as assault and/or battery. Criminal charges can be brought by the state’s attorney/prosecutor’s office. If you choose to pursue the criminal side of your case, you may continue to pursue a civil lawsuit. In a criminal case, the prosecution is searching for punishment in the form of jail time and/or fines. In a civil case, you can recover compensation for any medical expenses, property damage, personal injuries, pain and suffering, and/or punitive damages.

Several intentional torts impose a one (1) year statute of limitations period so it is very important that you contact the attorneys at Spigelman & Cecere, LLC in Rockville, Maryland as soon as possible If you have been the victim of an intentional tort.
