Intentional Torts: Deliberately Causing Harm to People 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
  • Defamation
