In the field of personal injury, there are different types of torts that are involved. Now, a tort is a cause of action for harm. And sometimes, it’s an intentional tort, meaning that the bad actor did it on purpose. Other times, there’s a negligence cause of action, meaning that the bad actor simply didn’t use reasonable care that other people would use under like circumstances. An intentional tort differs from negligence in several respects. An intentional tort is usually something like an assault or a battery. Oftentimes, there is no insurance coverage for an intentional tort. And for negligence cases, there often is insurance coverage that will provide protection for those that are harmed due to negligence.
