Intentional Acts

Intentional acts of personal injury

If a person acts purposefully, whether or not they have planned in advance or are acting on the spur of the moment, it is considered an intentional act of personal injury to directly cause harm to another person or his or her property.

Intentional acts may involve physical force, such as:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • False imprisonment

Intentional acts may involve business transactions or property:

  • Fraud/Misrepresentation
  • Trespassing on land
  • Trespassing on personal property

Even if no physical damage is incurred to person or property, the infliction of emotional distress is also considered an intentional act of personal injury.
