Delray Beach Intentional Misconduct Attorney

When you sustain injuries because of someone else’s negligence, you could file a claim for monetary compensation. If you or a loved one have sustained damages due to someone else’s deliberate misconduct, speak with a Delray Beach intentional misconduct attorney.

What Is Intentional Misconduct and How Is It Compensated?

Intentional misconduct in Florida requires that the defendant have firsthand knowledge of their behavior’s high likelihood of injury or destruction but continue to do it anyway.

If the victim can show intentional misconduct or extreme ignorance, Florida courts will impose punitive damages. It is also worth noting that, in Florida, the law limits punitive damages to either three times the restitution granted or $1 million, whichever is higher.

A victim of an intentional tort is eligible for monetary damages, such as medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost earnings, on top of punitive damages. Delray Beach intentional misconduct attorneys have been successful in obtaining punitive damage judgments.

Examples of Intentional Misconduct in Delray Beach

The following are some of the main types of intentional misconduct that a Delray Beach intentional misconduct attorney can help you attain compensation for.


When an individual willfully makes a false declaration and the victim sustains damages because of their justified confidence in the false statement, this is fraud. The entity might be liable for compensatory and punitive damages by a jury.

Generally, fraud happens during a business transaction when one party intentionally misleads the other about the composition or value of a product being offered. An attorney could also knowingly misguide their clients that they have filed lawsuits on their behalf.

Owing to a lapse in the statute of limitations, the claimant may lose powers to sue and eventually settle from a third party in the lawyer’s process’s willful false statement. A spouse whose partner accessed their credit card without their permission can also obtain a settlement.

Battery and Assault

When someone threatens or harms another individual, it is called assault and battery. The law frequently opens criminal charges and convictions against the culprit.

Delray Beach intentional misconduct attorneys have represented minors and adults abused and/or battered by healthcare employees and patients.


Defamation happens when someone makes a false statement that hurts another’s image. It is possible to obtain compensation from such a person through a Delray Beach intentional misconduct attorney.

Privacy Violations

Medical practitioners and enterprises have a responsibility to keep their clientele’s data private. Delray Beach intentional misconduct attorneys can effectively represent a patient when a physician’s office employee deliberately reveals their personal medical information.

In another instance, Delray Beach lawyers can effectively advocate for a student if a teacher purposefully divulges their HIV-positive status to an entire class of students. They may also acquire a settlement for a victim who had privately confided to a news reporter.

In short, anything that you confided to another entity who had the power to keep the information private but did not is a privacy violation. You have a legal right to sue such an entity for releasing your information without permission and to obtain compensation.

False Imprisonment and False Arrest

False incarceration happens when police detain an individual against their will without legal justification, while false arrest happens whenever police hold an individual without reasonable suspicion of disorderly conduct or committing a felony.

Overzealous and undertrained security personnel are the perpetrators of these interrelated intentional torts. Delray Beach intentional misconduct attorneys have a track record of successfully representing individuals mistreated by security personnel.

If you can show that this was the source of your mishap, you may receive higher compensation for your injuries. Thoroughly analyze your incident with your attorney to assess whether you were a victim of such misconduct or if your mishap was merely out of ordinary negligence.

I usually never leave reviews, good or bad, but for this instance, I most definitely had to. David and Marnie were both AMAZING. They made me feel comfortable and confident in their ability to resolve my case. I was walking in a crosswalk and was hit by a vehicle resulting in having to go to the hospital. I sustained injuries from this that I am still in the midst of dealing with. I contacted the firm and was able to speak with them via zoom immediately. I decided to sign with them on a Monday evening (3 days after my accident) and by Tuesday afternoon (the very next day) my case was settled. And settled for the very max that was able to be obtained. I attribute a lot of this to not only the expertise of the firm, but the relationships that Marnie has built with her experience working as a lawyer within a major insurance provider, which just so happened to be the insurance provider involved in my case. This is incredibly atypical for a case to be settled this quickly, especially with this outcome. It has been two weeks to the day today that my accident has happened and my case has already been resolved. I am blessed and more than happy that I decided to hire this firm. Every case is different, but I can bet that this firm will handle your case with care and the utmost professionalism. I pray I never have to go through a situation like this again, but if I did, I wouldn’t hesitate to call this law firm. Thank you guys very much!!


I highly recommend Eltringham Law Group to anyone seeking legal advice after having a car accident. David Eltringham and his entire staff gave me the personal attention I needed during a very difficult and painful time. David took the extra steps needed to ensure that I received the medical care I needed as well as the financial compensation I deserved. Harold Torres, Paralegal updated me every step of the way. Thank you Eltringham Law Group!
