Have you or a loved one fallen victim to an act or failure to act when the law provides a remedy? Have you or a loved one fallen victim to this intentionally, rather than out of carelessness or negligence? If you have, you have likely been the victim of an intentional tort, or intentional wrongdoing. These acts can fall under one of two categories: 1) torts against property, and 2) torts again people. Often torts against property involve trespassing or conversion (theft of property without intent to return). Torts against people include fraud and embezzlement, and can also include conversion.
In cases involving intentional torts, if the perpetrator had the intent to act, they are liable for damages, regardless of whether or not they had intended to do harm. As opposed to criminal trials typically done by law enforcement, when intentional torts such as assault or battery take place, the victim has a right to file a claim in civil courts to recover damages, and can do so immediately after the incident.
To minimize losses associated with these acts, it is important to speak to a qualified legal professional immediately and call the Law Offices of Savin & Bursk for a free consultation today.
