Texas Libel, Slander, Civil Assault Lawyers
An intentional tort is the deliberate or malicious infliction of harm that results in injury. When a person or business suffers harm because of what someone else said, wrote, or did, they have the right to bring a civil law suit to recover damages.
At Brock Person Guerra Reyna, P.C., in San Antonio, our civil litigation attorneys defend clients against allegations of libel, slander, assault and battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. To discuss your legal matter, please contact a civil litigation attorney at Brock Person Guerra Reyna, today.
Slander is defamation that is transitory in nature, as in speech or gestures. Libel is defamation that is published in a lasting format, such as in a written or recorded form. The first defense against allegations of either form of defamation is truth. If you say your competitor is known for making shoddy products and can back up the assertion with facts, you cannot be held liable.
Intentional tort claims can be damaging to your reputation and your business. Our attorneys take these matters seriously and work to minimize any potential damages. We thoroughly prepare the case and make every attempt to settle it outside of the court room in order to save you the time and expense of a trial. However, we prepare each case as if it will go to trial and are known and respected for our success in front of a judge and jury.
