Tort law refers to any wrong done to an individual or group that causes harm and results in a civil case. The offending party can be an individual, group, business, or government entity. Torts result from negligence, intentional harm, and strict liability of the offending party. If injury, death, or damage to property occurs due to the negligence or misconduct of a public employee acting within the scope of their duties, there are specific laws that apply to the case against the government entity. Action must be taken quickly, so retaining an experienced attorney is paramount to the successful resolution of the case.
