A “tort”, otherwise known as an intentional civil wrong not arising out of a contract, arises when someone by their acts/inaction injures someone else. The injured person then has a right to recovery for the injuries sustained and for the expenses that are related to the wrongful act. Common examples of torts are:
- Assault & Battery
- Physical/Emotional Injury as a result of outrageous behavior
- Slander/Libel (harmful rumors/lies either verbal or in writing)
- False imprisonment
- Racial profiling
- Loss of consortium (breakdown of marital relationship)
- Negligence (failing to take steps to prevent harm to another)
- Civil Rights Violations
Tort liability is often difficult to prove as a result of the type/nature of the injuries involved. As such, if you were harmed as a result of another person or entity, it is imperative that you retain experienced and aggressive counsel to assist you in stating a claim.
