Attorney for Cases Involving Intentional Conduct
Intentional conduct or wrongdoing is one of three main grounds for personal injury claims. Also referred to as intentional torts, these cases involve a person who has acted intentionally and willfully to cause another person harm. Although actions of this kind may result in criminal charges, the injured party may also be able to file a separate personal injury lawsuit.
Were you injured because another person acted deliberately to cause you harm? A Phoenix injury attorney at Knowles Law Firm, PLC can talk to you about filing a lawsuit in civil court. Even if the person is already facing criminal charges for their actions, they can file a personal injury case for their intentional conduct, seeking justice through the civil court system. This may also apply in a case where a person who harmed you was tried and acquitted in criminal court. This may be your second chance at justice.
Types of Intentional Torts
Some examples of intentional torts may include:
- Assault – physically harming another person by attacking him or her. This may also include making a threat or attempt of bodily harm against another person.
- False imprisonment – taking and /or holding another person against their will, sometimes accomplished by way of physical force, although this is not necessary to constitute false imprisonment.
- Fraud or misrepresentation – spreading what one knows to be false information about another person or business in order to cause the victim harm.
These are just a few simple examples of what may constitute intentional torts. An jury lawyer at their firm can explain these in more detail and can talk to you about your unique case to see if it qualifies.

Negligence in Phoenix Personal Injury Claims
Negligence is best defined as a failure to use reasonable care. The specific action or inaction that constitutes negligent conduct may vary depending on the context, as different actions require different levels of care. For example, doctors and all medical professionals are held to a higher standard of conduct than individuals in other professions. A person driving a car may be expected to act with a different level of care than a person who is walking down the street.
Depending on the situation, a person who acts negligently and causes injury to another person as a result, even when entirely unintentional, may be held accountable by way of a personal injury lawsuit.
Negligence is the most common grounds for personal injury cases. If you were injured because another person was careless or reckless, you may have grounds for a case. A Phoenix injury attorney at Knowles Law Firm, PLC can talk to you about your legal options in seeking justice.
