Tort Law Job Description
Encompassing nearly all aspects of civil litigation (with the exception of contract disputes), tort law is among the largest and most active career fields in the legal industry.
Tort law cases and areas of focus
Tort law cases involve physical or monetary harm done to an individual, and there are four main categories of tort law. Professionals within the field must be knowledgeable of all four. They are:
- Intentional torts: A deliberate attempt to harm another individual. Examples include defamation and fraud.
- Negligent torts: Harm caused by negligent behavior or the failure to pursue diligence. Medical malpractice is a prime example of negligent tort.
- Strict liability torts: Harm caused by products when used as directed.
- Toxic torts: Harm caused by exposure to dangerous substances, including drugs, chemicals, pesticides and pollutants.
