What is Intentional Conduct?
Intentional conduct is a form of injury in which an individual deliberately causes harm or fatally injures another. It can involve hitting a person, damaging or tampering with property such as a home or a vehicle, poisoning them, defaming the person and causing others to want to inflict harm, transmitting an STD intentionally or any other type of misconduct that will knowingly cause harm to an individual.
If you have been injured due to intentional conduct, do not hesitate to secure legal representation. The sooner you begin working with a skilled lawyer, the sooner you will be able to put together a competent case. In order to qualify for compensation, you will first need to prove that your injuries were sustained from the intentional conduct. In some cases, criminal charges are pursued as well, which can create even more tension between a victim and their attacker. In cases such as these, is it important to have a lawyer at your side to help protect you from any further harm.
Legal Assistance with Intentional Conduct Claims
Although intentional conduct can be mistaken for negligence in some cases, they are actually quite distinct. Negligence, or an act of carelessness, simply means that the suspect harmed his or her victim by failing to take into account the safety of others, but did not originally intend to harm anyone. Whether you have been injured due to negligence or intentional conduct, it is always important to work with an attorney as soon as possible.
