When you research the law of
A person who commits a tort is sometimes referred to as a “tortfeasor.” If this person is found to have committed a tort, then they will have to pay the victim compensation for the injuries they suffered as a result of the tortfeasor’s wrongdoing.
A tort can be either intentional or unintentional. Harming another person because of negligent behavior is an unintentional tort. For example, a person could be considered negligent if they cause a car accident because they were talking on their cellphone and weren’t paying attention to the vehicles around them. The driver did not mean to hurt anyone, but they hurt someone nonetheless and they are now responsible for their victim’s injuries.
An intentional tort, by contrast, occurs when a person intentionally and willfully sets out to cause harm to another person, such as in a case of assault and battery.
