What is an Intentional Tort?

Fairfax Injury Lawyer Brien Roche Addresses What Is An Intentional Tort

Brien Roche

An intentional tort is a civil wrong that is committed by a person on purpose resulting in injury to another.

Examples of Intentional Torts

For instance, if I run my car into you on purpose with the idea of hurting you then that may be the intentional tort. The tort is assault and battery. If I lie to you for the purpose of deceiving you and causing you to incur some expense as a result of my lying then I may have committed a fraud. That is an intentional tort.

Other intentional torts are defamation, abuse of process and conversion. Also malicious prosecution, trespass, conspiracy and false imprisonment.
