Seeking Justice Through A Domestic Tort

Domestic abuse and neglect inflict serious harm. Families may suffer economic, psychological, physical and other losses at the hands of someone they once trusted. In some cases, domestic violence is fatal.

If a spouse, former spouse, household member, romantic partner or family member abused you or your child, we can help you file a domestic tort in California to get justice. We are determined to get fair results for you.

What Are The Damages Of A Domestic Tort?

A domestic tort is a type of lawsuit that you can file against someone who inflicted abuse or neglect. Although the legal purpose of a domestic tort is to claim compensation for the resulting damages, many families also file a domestic tort to get closure and personal justice.

Domestic violence can lead to several consequences for you and your family, such as:

  • Medical costs and lost income from injuries
  • Emotional trauma as well as past, current and future costs of therapy
  • Disfigurement, loss of limb or loss of physical function
  • Economic loss through manipulation and financial abuse

With a strong domestic tort, you may be able to secure compensation for each type of damage that you suffered plus attorneys’ fees, punitive damages and injunctive remedies.

Common Types Of Domestic Torts

Domestic tort lawsuits can be filed for a variety of reasons beyond sexual, physical and emotional abuse. In California, plaintiffs can file lawsuits to address these harmful acts:

  • Battery or assault, even if a restraining order has not been filed
  • Fraud, which includes identity theft, changing asset titles or converting property without permission
  • Herpes, HIV or STD infection
  • Invasion of privacy, which includes recording and disseminating intimate images and accessing the plaintiff’s computer, email accounts and other accounts without permission
  • Violation of custody rights, which include relocating a child without permission, abducting the child and disregarding court custody orders
