What is Defamation?

Defamation involves making a false and malicious assertion of fact about a person, either when spoken (slander) or when written (libel). This action can seriously damage a person’s reputation, causing them to lose the respect and confidence of others. This can have an adverse impact on the victim’s future, leaving them and their families exposed to contempt and ridicule.

Defamation often occurs when people make malicious statements in situations involving false arrest for criminal conduct, but is also common on the internet. An anonymous person may post false information or misleading comments about an individual or their business on social media or review sites with intent to destroy that person's career. With the amount of time people spend online researching people and businesses, internet defamation can have disastrous consequences and warrants immediate legal action.

Expressions of opinion, however, are not considered defamation. For example, stating that someone is guilty of a crime when they are not can constitute defamation, but if someone simply expresses negative opinions about a person, there may not be grounds for a lawsuit. There is a fine line between free speech and defamation, but when it is crossed, the team at Pratt Clay can take action. Get in touch with our personal injury lawyers in Atlanta, GA to learn more.
