Tort Litigation

Torts are wrongs (negligence or other actions leading to an injury) for which a claim is made.  Although they are not criminal in nature and are not handled in a criminal proceeding, a crime can be the grounds for a tort.  When these wrongs are committed and result in an injury or harm, they constitute the basis for a lawsuit by the injured party.

Torts are classified as follows:

  1. Negligent Actions: Acts of another that were done negligently, without intent, and result in injury.  An example would be texting while driving and colliding into the vehicle in front of your vehicle.
  2. Intentional Actions: Acts of another who knew their actions would result in injury.  An example would be when a person is upset with the someone who inadvertently walked in front of them at the grocery store and punched that someone for doing so.
  3.  Product liability: The act of selling a defective product or placing a defective product in the stream of commerce which leads to injury of the consumer.
