Recovery for Assaults in West Virginia

Each year, individuals are intentionally assaulted by other individuasl for various reasons, most of which can not be justified in a court of law and do not justify putting another individual in harm’s way. Although many have been taught to “treat others the way that you would want to be treated” since a very young age, this is not the practice of some individuals. When another individual’s actions have caused you or your loved one harm, you may be entitled to relief.

What are Intentional Torts?

Intentional torts are civil lawsuits filed against a wrongdoer for intentional acts committed by that individual. Intentional torts require harm suffered as a result of the intentional act, either to one’s person or property. If the harm suffered was a result of an accident or done unintentionally, you may still have a claim against the wrongdoer, but it may not be an intentional tort. While intentional torts often result in criminal charges, these situations also give rise to personal injury claims for those seeking monetary compensation for their injuries.

The most common intentional torts committed are assault and/or battery. Assault is an intentional tort that can occur in a variety of ways, all of which stem from unwanted contact. Most often, our personal injury litigators represent clients who have been injured in bar fights, road rage incidents, and domestic violence incidents.
