Injuries From Assault And Intentional Acts
Intentional acts and assault that lead to an injury are known as “intentional torts.” When someone’s intentional or purposeful behavior causes harm to another individual, an intentional tort occurs. Under Pennsylvania law, the person who causes you harm can be financially responsible to pay for your medical bills and other costs relating to their harmful act.
Examples of the types of injuries sustained from intentional torts include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
