In addition to a Domestic Violence/Abuse case under the DVPA, you may also have a domestic tort case. 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.
What Are the Damages of a Domestic Tort?
With a strong domestic tort, you may be able to secure compensation for each type of damage that you suffered, and possibly 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

Our lawyers will give you the time you need to share your account and your concerns and help you find the right attorney to file this lawsuit.
