Elements of a Defamation Lawsuit
Someone made a statement
If someone made a statement against you, that was either verbally spoken or read, or even through signs and depiction, it can be considered defamation.
The statement caused you injury
You can file defamation if you, as the plaintiff, suffered any physical or mental harm due to the statement made by the other person in front of you or behind your back.
The statement did not fall into a privileged category
If the accuser made a defamatory or false statement about you that did not fall under any privileged category, such as absolute or qualified privilege, you are said to have been defamed.
The statement was published
You will be defamed if someone publishes a statement against you that can be read by the public or a third-party entity rather than writing it somewhere that no one can see.
The statement was false
The main cause of a defamation case is a false statement. So, if you come across someone who has made an unpleasant statement about you, you have been defamed.
exposes a person to public hatred
If a statement made against the plaintiff incites hatred in public and harms their reputation, the person is said to be defamed.
