What is a Tort?
Tort is a broad area of law that covers both criminal acts and civil wrongs. If another person or entity causes you injury due to either negligence or intentional malice, you can hold them liable for their actions under tort law.
Specifically, the word tort refers to an action that needlessly harms another person. A tort can be a deliberate crime, such as battery or theft. It can also be a legally negligent act, such as failure to signal a turn while driving or failure to maintain a safe environment for guests.
In a tort case, if you prove that the other party caused damages, you may be entitled to financial compensation. To help you prove your tort case, contact a Danville personal injury attorney from the respected firm of Spiros Law, P.C., today at (217) 443-4343.
