  • Damages: money paid by the defendant to compensate for injuries

Liability

    • This is not the same as moral responsibility--
  • Tort law deals with two basic questions:

    • How much should the responsible person pay?
tort law
Tort Law
  • Tort law occurs when one person causes injury to another person, their property, or their reputation.
    • The injured party (plaintiff) takes the wrongdoer (defendant) to court. Tort law provides the plaintiff with a remedy (something to make up for what was lost).
  • Tort law establishes standards of care that society expects from people. You must act with reasonable care toward people and their property.
