A tort is when a civil wrong is committed against an individual or legal entity. This is a legal cause of action by which an individual is eligible to claim compensation through the legal system. Individuals have certain interests protected by law under tort law. The protection will award monetary compensation (damages) in exchanges for infringement of protected interest. Several cases are crimes punishable with imprisonment, but the majority of cases are designed to provide relief for suffered damages. Damages may include present and future losses due to the injury to the victim.
These are acts committed by the defendant in which they knew or should have known there would be harm. Intentional torts include assault, oral defamation, trespassing, and emotional distress.
These torts refer to unsafe actions that lead to personal injury. Car accidents are one of the most common negligent, especially if one party intentionally disobeyed traffic laws. Slip and fall claims often fall under negligent as well. Medical malpractice is another example of a negligent tort. Workplace accidents are considered negligent as employers are in violation of providing a safe workplace to their staff.
Strict liability torts related to action that leads to damages. Defective products are common strict liability torts as are accidents related to flammable liquids and other hazardous activities.
What You Need to Know
The victim will need to prove the liabilities of the defendant in a court of law meaning you will need to present proof that the actions of the defendant were in malice or intent. Hiring a good attorney to help you in this situation is essential to your case. Here are some things you will need to prove to a court of law:
- The defendant failed in their ability to perform their duties or responsibilities
- Injury occurred due to the failure of the defendant
- Injury could have been prevented if proper care had been exercised by the defendant

I highly recommend the firm of LeBaron & Jensen. Tyler and his staff answers my concerns promptly, gives absolutely top notch advice and does not charge an arm and a leg, but very fair fee for the services they provide. I feel as though Tyler gives you more than what you pay for and goes beyond whats expected. This is not just my opinion, but many other colleagues who actually referred me to him.
I can not say enough about this attorney office. Amazing team. I called multiple times with questions. Some times daily. Linda was always very patient with me and gave me all the information I was looking for each time. After our case was closed I had some additional questions and called and the team did not hesitate to jump in and help. The team genially cares about you and your family. Choose them and they will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
We were very pleased with how Miles Lebaron handled our car accident case. The insurance company was quite difficult to work with. Miles was persistent with the insurance company and got the settlement we were seeking, without having to go to court.
Miles also handled a case for our son, who was bit on the face by a dog. Again, Miles was persistent and was able to get a fair settlement, which included allowing our son to have the reconstructive surgery that he needed.
