Texas Intentional Tort Attorney

Knowledgeable Counsel. Aggressive Advocacy. Honest Representation.

An intentional tort is a type of personal injury matter that involves harm caused by the intentional conduct of another, rather than someone else’s negligence. The impact of an intentional tort can be significant—and a victim can suffer a wide array of damages. In such instances, it’s crucial to ensure that a wrongdoer is held accountable for their actions and the harm they caused.

The Law Office of Jonathan Wharton knows how a victim’s life and livelihood can be affected by an intentional tort. Whether a case involves a physical assault, financial fraud, or reputational damage, Jonathan provides the representation his clients need to secure the justice they deserve.

Holding Wrongdoers Accountable for Intentional Torts

A person who has suffered physical, emotional, or financial harm due to the direct injurious actions of another may be able to bring an intentional tort claim. Unlike other personal injury actions, these cases do not require establishing negligence in order for a plaintiff to prevail. Although each intentional tort has different elements that must be satisfied, a victim must generally show that another person willingly, purposefully, and knowingly committed an intentional act—without the victim’s consent—that resulted in an injury.

The Law Office of Jonathan Wharton understands what it takes to hold a wrongdoer accountable for the intentional harm they have caused to another. Jonathan has the knowledge and experience necessary to assist clients with a variety of intentional torts, such as those involving the following:

  • Physical assault and battery
  • Murder
  • Sexual assault
  • Assault
  • Revenge porn
  • Financial wrongdoing
  • Conversion
  • Fraud and misrepresentation
  • Intentional infliction of emotional distress
  • False imprisonment
  • Defamation
  • Invasion of privacy

An intentional tort can have a substantial impact on a victim’s life—physically, emotionally, and financially. While many intentional torts can also result in criminal charges, it’s essential to understand that filing a civil lawsuit for intentional harm is not the same as a criminal prosecution. Importantly, a criminal case is brought by the government against the person who committed the wrongdoing. While a criminal prosecution may lead to jail time for the wrongdoer, the victim typically does not receive compensation for the harm they suffered.

A proficient civil litigator and adept negotiator, Jonathan carefully evaluates the facts of each intentional harm matter he handles. He carefully assesses the facts and circumstances of each case to achieve the best possible outcome for his clients so they can move forward.

Helping Intentional Tort Victims Recover Their Rightful Compensation

A victim who suffered an injury as a result of someone else’s intentional wrongdoing may have the right to pursue compensation for an intentional tort. Specifically, by pursuing a lawsuit, a plaintiff may be eligible to recover their economic and non-economic losses. Offering capable counsel for a broad scope of intentional torts, The Law Office of Jonathan Wharton is dedicated to ensuring each of his clients obtain the monetary recovery that is rightfully theirs.

Depending on the type of intentional tort and the losses incurred, a plaintiff may be entitled to recover a broad array of economic and non-economic damages by pursuing a lawsuit, including:

  • Medical expenses for any physical injuries incurred
  • Therapy and counseling expenses for emotional distress and psychiatric injuries
  • Past and future lost income, earnings, and benefits
  • The costs of replacement services
  • Out-of-pocket costs
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress
  • Disfigurement
  • Physical disability
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Additionally, punitive damages may be available in limited intentional tort cases where it can be shown that the wrongdoer acted with malice or fraud. These damages are not meant to compensate a victim, but instead they are meant to punish the defendant and deter others from engaging in similar conduct.

Intentional torts are complex—and recovering compensation requires skillful strategy and aggressive advocacy. Applying his acumen and insight, Jonathan takes a thoughtful approach in every case. With a demonstrated track record of success, Jonathan knows how to investigate these matters, gather the evidence that will help prove each of his clients’ cases, and thoroughly assess the harm they suffered to recover the damages they are entitled.
