What are Tort Laws?
Tort law refers to cases which involve one party accusing another party of being liable for their injuries. Cases such as medical malpractice, auto accidents, slip and fall accidents on someone else’s property, and dog bites are all examples of common tort cases. In these cases, the injured party alleges that their injury was a direct result of the defendant’s negligence. The defendant’s negligence is therefore responsible, either in part or in full, for the pain and suffering of the injured party. If it is ruled that the defendant was indeed responsible for the injury and that they owed the injured person a duty of care at the time, they will likely be ordered to compensate the victim for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses.
If you or someone you love has been harmed by another person or entity’s negligent behavior, you could be eligible to receive compensation. To speak with an attorney about your personal injury case, contact a Wisconsin personal injury attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874.
