Tort law is about civil wrongs: the claimants argue that the defendant breached their civil rights. Tort Law is therefore an important part of Private Law, being the law that applies between individuals.
There are many different ‘torts’, each prescribe different rights and obligations. It is important not to merge these torts, and to apply them separately and logically. Similarly, it is important to distinguish the different potential claims that can be made by a person.
This section currently focuses on the biggest tort: the tort of negligence. We are currently working on other sections of tort law, which will be added soon.
