Although many Intentional Torts may give rise to criminal penalties, the victim of an Intentional Tort can also recover compensatory damages through the civil court system similar to a negligence case. There is a possibility to recover punitive damages from the individual that caused you or your loved ones’ damages. Punitive damages are intended to punish the individual that caused the harm and deter him/her from engaging in similar conduct in the future.
