Yes. Though many personal injury claims are based on negligence, some are based on intentional acts. Known as an intentional tort, this type of civil litigation allows plaintiffs to seek compensation for injuries and damages caused by a defendant's purposeful actions. While these cases involve an underlying act that was intentional, the resulting harm doesn't necessarily have to be. For example, if a driver hits a jogger on purpose, the jogger could have grounds for an intentional tort personal injury claim—regardless of whether the driver intended to hurt them, or the injuries were the result of a prank.
If you or someone you love were intentionally hit by a car or truck in the Atlanta area, you may be entitled to damages for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning potential, physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other losses. A skilled personal injury attorney can investigate your claim and gather the evidence needed to prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care and breached that duty, resulting in a crash that caused your injuries and damages.
