Understanding Tortious Interference
6 December 2018
collection attorney Miami, Healthcare, healthcare reimbursement
The words “tortious interference” may seem odd, but these words hold a tremendous amount of weight among business owners. Tortious interference occurs when a third party to a business relationship or contract deliberately causes a disruption to the relationship or contract. This can happen in a variety of different ways, including but not limited to when an employer files suit against an ex-employee to enforce a non-compete agreement, neighbors erect fake for sale signs to sabotage an auction of a neighbor’s property, or when a person purposely posts untrue information regarding a business to drive away customers.
To establish tortious interference, a plaintiff must be able to prove that a business relationship existed with another party or that there was potential for a relationship and they must also show that the defendant was aware of the relationship, among other requirements. To be successful, a plaintiff must prove that the damages resulted directly from the actions taken by a defendant.
