Tort is French for wrong. When you have been the victim of a civil wrong, or wrongful act, whether intentional or accidental, from which injury occurs, you may have a case.
Torts include all negligence cases as well as intentional wrongs which result in harm. Negligence can occur when someone’s conduct falls below the standards of behavior established by law and which causes harm to another. A person has acted negligently if he or she has departed from the conduct expected of a reasonably prudent person acting under similar circumstances. Intentional torts may be committed with intent and/or force, such as trespass to property, assault, battery, or imprisonment.
If you have suffered an injury at the hands of another, you should consult an attorney. Consider contacting The Rizzo Law Firm for a free case consultation.
