What kinds of injuries does a tort claim attorney cover?
Tort claims are classified into four categories: negligent, intentional, strict liability and product liability. A seasoned tort claim attorney can help you navigate the process and prove your case in all categories.
Negligent torts are the most common—they occur when a person or company acts in a careless manner, causing you to suffer an injury or financial loss. While their careless behavior may not be intentional, it still causes harm to you, and they are responsible for the consequences that brings.
Here are some examples of negligent torts:
An intentional tort occurs when someone intentionally performs an action, and the action causes you harm. It doesn’t matter if the person didn’t intend to harm you in particular; if their action was intentional, it’s still considered an intentional tort.
Here are some examples of intentional torts:
Strict liability torts
Strict liability torts involve situations where an individual or company puts someone in danger, even if there is no negligence involved. Categories for strict liability include abnormally dangerous acts or injuries caused by animals.
