When one person injures another person, either knowingly or accidentally, it is considered a tort case and a “civil” wrong. As such, the four main goals of tort law are:

  • To win compensation for personal injury victims.
  • To legally obligate the person who harmed the victim to pay restorative and punitive damages.
  • To prevent the recurrence of similar reckless or negligent action in the future.
  • To defend the victim’s legal rights.

As a civil case, the goal is not to prove criminal liability. A tort case has the intention of helping a victim get financial compensation. At Fieger Law, we have helped win maximum compensation in tort cases for many clients. We fight hard to attain damages for physical, psychological, and emotional injuries.

The 3 Types of Torts

  • Intentional Wrong Torts – An act committed against another person with the intention of causing harm.
  • Negligence Torts – When an injury occurs from the actions or inaction of another person.
  • Strict Liability Torts – When a manufacturer creates and sells a defective product.

Compensation in torts is to help the plaintiff (you) recover from injuries.

However, “recovery” is a broader category than simply paying for a doctor. Tort cases can address your short-term and long-term medical needs, loss of wages and earning capacity, and even emotional and psychological damages. Punitive damages also address the pain and suffering you are going through.

Common damages in tort cases:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical costs
  • Permanent disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Humiliation/embarrassment
  • Loss of wages
  • Impairment of earning capacity
  • Personal property damage
