What Is an Intentional Tort?
Our White Plains Personal Injury Lawyer Explains
An intentional tort is a
personal injury or
wrongful death claim that seeks to prove fault after someone has incurred serious bodily
harm or death by another’s intentional conduct. Homicide and battery
can be tried as intentional torts as the acts are often carried out with
the intention to kill or hurt. A tort claim differs from criminal negligence
and can be filed even if a criminal case fails to yield desired results.
Filing a tort claim requires the skilled representation of a highly-qualified
White Plains personal injury lawyer. These matters can be difficult to
prove and the experience required to successfully navigate your case may
be incredibly complex, depending on the circumstances of your injury.

Often the hardest part of a tort claim is proving that the negligent party
intended to cause harm by taking purposeful actions against you or a loved one.
Proving an intention tort requires the following:
- Knowledge of the state of mind of the offending party
- The injury resulted from a deliberate act against a victim
- A careless accident was not the cause of injury
Whether you have suffered physical injury, or sustained property damage,
bringing suit against the offending person or entity requires a keen insight
into legal issues and a thorough investigation of your case.
