What Is Tort Law?
Tort law allows wronged individuals – injury victims — to pursue compensation for the damages suffered because of someone’s negligence. The idea of a tort civil case is to return the victim to the state he or she was in before an accident. If someone suffers a broken leg, for example, a successful civil lawsuit should cover the medical expenses and all financial losses. Non-financial losses such as physical pain and mental anguish may also be considered under Tort Law.
While it may not always be possible to restore a victim to a pre-injury state, personal injury law gives injured victims the opportunity to claim compensation for their injuries and damages from the at-fault party that caused the victim’s injury.
Civil vs. Criminal Cases
Authorities may penalize an individual for a criminal act through criminal charges. A criminal case may result in fines and incarceration, but it will not result in payment to the victim who was injured as a result of the criminal act. A civil lawsuit, however, is filed by the victim to pursue compensation to cover damages such as medical expenses and lost earnings.
A person does not have to be found guilty of a crime to be held civilly liable for their actions. The most famous example of this involved O.J. Simpson. He was found not guilty in a criminal trial but was then held civilly liable for the death of his wife and another man. A civil lawsuit is the victim’s way to hold the at-fault party accountable for their actions – regardless of whether they are criminally prosecuted.
