I guess this question is for a Personal injury lawyer:
Can a person be sued if he injures on purpose another person ?

Thanks

Yes. There is no קם ליה בדרבא מיניה doctrine.

Yes he can be sued, but if was truly intentionally there is a shorter statute of limitations and the defendant's insurance carrier could disclaim coverage depending on the situation.

Is the "statue of limitations" shorter than the standard 2 years?
can the insurance company's disclaim mean that i can't sue the person?

Thanks for the replies

Standard for personal injury is 3 years. I don't understand your insurance question.

Intentional torts are actionable as are unintentional torts. OJ was sued for intentionally killing his wife.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

That was ridiculous. He was not guilty so why does he need to pay them?

The burden of proof is lower in a civil case than in a criminal case.  So he wasn't guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt" in the criminal case, but he was found responsible by the "preponderance of the evidence" in the civil one.

Exactly. Was wondering how our in-house lawyer doesn't know the simple ABC's of civil vs. criminal guilt.

Was told by a paralegal that insurance company can't be sued if person injures someone intentional. they will only pay if it was a accident.
i did speak yesterday with a lawyer that told me that it might not be true.

The way I  understand it:
You're suing the person that did it.  If his insurance company doesn't pay (because it was on purpose, not an accident), that's his problem.  You can still win damages against him. He may not have the funds to pay out of his own pocket, but he'd still have a judgement against him.

what is the difference between a defence being "stricken" or "dismissed"?

instead of writing "+1" and clogging up the thread give a like!
