An employer intentional tort is a specific type of claim against a person’s employer based upon unsafe working conditions within a plant, mill, factory, or other workplace. More specifically, an employee may pursue an employer intentional tort claim if a company and/or its supervisors act in such a way that they deliberately intend to injure an employee or are substantially certain an employee will be hurt.
While most workplace accidents present workers compensation claims, employer intentional tort claims offer the employee an opportunity to be fully compensated for all of their losses, such as past and future medical expenses, full lost wages, and non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering and permanency.
