Hello everyone I’m Jim Parish and today I would like to answer the question: “what is a tort?”
A tort is a fancy legal term for a wrong against another. Tort law is made up of auto accident claims, motorcycle accident claims, tractor trailer accident claims, slip and fall, medical malpractice, wrongful death, and dog bites. Of course, there are many other categories, but those are the most common. So, if you hear someone say, “do I have a tort claim?” think, does that mean somebody else has caused an injury due to no fault of their own. That’s the simple definition. I hope that helps.
