How It Works

We basically contribute our resources so that you don’t have to pay any fees until your case is settled. This allows you to focus on your recovery and not worry about paying for legal services.

A personal injury lawyer is a term that refers to legal remedies and defenses in civil lawsuits that are brought about by wrongful conduct. The Latin term “tort” actually means twist, wrong, harm. Contrary to criminal law, a tort case does not involve the government prosecuting wrongdoers. These cases are a private lawsuit that seeks compensation (usually money), for the damage caused by the defendant’s acts.

Our work is contingent. Legal fees are not charged until your case is resolved. There are no legal fees if the case is not resolved. To ensure victims feel comfortable talking to our firm about their case and to be able to access their legal rights, we offer a free initial consultation as well as a contingency fee model. This allows them to avoid mounting legal costs and financial pressures that can come with serious injury.

Legal Definition of "Intentional Torts"

Intentional torts can include assault, battery and slander, as well as false imprisonment, intentional emotional distress, trespass and malicious prosecution. Intentional torts claims typically involve three elements:

Causation: The plaintiff must prove that the defendant caused the consequences.

Contrary to other tort claims the plaintiff does not have to prove that he/she was injured in order for the defendant be held liable. Punitive damages are possible in intentional torts depending on the jurisdiction. Punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant’s bad behavior.
