What is tort?

A tort is a civil wrong that injures someone in some way that can result in a lawsuit against the wrongdoer. There are three general categories of torts: intentional, negligent, and strict liability torts. Intentional torts arise when a person intentionally injures another, like through an act of violence or another malicious act. Negligent torts occur when a person injures another through their poor choices, such as causing a car wreck by ignoring traffic signs. Lastly, strict liability torts occur when someone is liable for a mistake, such as a defective product.
