One of these legal terms you have likely heard over and over again is “tort” or “tort law.” Tort law is a body of law that addresses civil wrongs. Tort law was created to address wrong doings that do not fall in the categories of contract law or criminal law. A singular tort is a negligent or intentional civil wrongdoing that is not connected to a contract or crime.

Types of Tort Law

Tort law allows for an injured person – whether the injury is physical, emotional or monetary – to sue a person or company that could be held liable (legally responsible) for the injuries sustained. Areas of tort law include:

  • Intentional torts
  • Negligence claims
  • Battery
  • Defamation

Most tort claims are personal injury cases, which concern a person seeking compensation from a negligent or even malicious party that harmed him or her. Our Sheboygan personal injury attorneys have years of experience handling such cases. If your life has been affected by another party’s negligence, we can fight for you.
