Assault, Battery and Intentional Torts

Injuries can occur for a variety of reasons. They can happen because another person was negligent or reckless, or because the person wanted to intentionally inflict an injury. Intentional torts occur when a person intentionally acts in a certain way that leads to another person's injury. Some common examples of intentional torts are assault, battery, trespass, and false imprisonment. FindLaw's Assault, Battery and Intentional Torts section provides information about the various acts that are considered intentional torts and the elements that a victim must prove in order to prevail in his or her case.
