Defamation is a false statement or communication about another person that causes emotional or financial harm. This harm may include damage to an individual’s or business’s reputation, as well as mental anguish and distress. Some statements such as accusing one of a crime are presumed damaging, and are recoverable without specific proof of damages.
These cases can occur when the defamatory statements are made orally or in a printed medium such as a newspaper or magazine. Internet defamation can occur when a person publishes such libelous statements online. Be advised that the law protects your reputation against defamation.
These cases can be challenging to prove and involve overcoming many legal defenses, which makes it invaluable to have an experienced advocate on your side. The Harr Law Firm successfully litigated numerous cases involving injury to reputation and can assist you with your claim.
