What is Tort Law and how does it work?

Tort law, in essence, serves as the backbone of civil justice, governing cases where individuals seek compensation for harm or injuries inflicted upon them by the actions or negligence of others. It encompasses a broad spectrum of scenarios, ranging from personal injury claims to cases of defamation and property damage. At its core, tort law aims to restore the injured party to their pre-injury state, both financially and emotionally, while holding wrongdoers accountable for their actions.

One of the fundamental principles of tort law is the concept of duty of care, which stipulates that individuals have a legal obligation to exercise reasonable care to avoid causing harm to others. When this duty is breached, resulting in harm or injury, the injured party may have grounds to pursue a tort claim. This can include situations such as car accidents caused by reckless driving, slip and fall incidents due to negligent property maintenance, or medical malpractice resulting from substandard care.
