A Helpful Guide on How to Determine and Understand the Various Legal Wrongdoings Constituting As Tortious Conduct

Lawsuit Document Involving Tort Law Issues Tort law is the area of law that applies to almost everything and anything within our society such as driving motor vehicles, flying airplanes, piloting ships, building family homes or office skyscrapers, maintaining parking lots, serving hot coffee, performing heart surgery, disciplining young children, or even selling cookies door-to-door.

Tort law addresses legal claims for compensation due to the consequences of someone blameworthy for a minor injury, a business loss, a harmed reputation, or even a major catastrophe.  Accordingly, everyone within society is governed and affected by aspects of tort law.

Examples, types of cases

Within the area of tort law are commonly recognized legal matters such as the issue of negligence for failure to keep walkways safe resulting in slip and fall injuries to pedestrians; however, tort law also involves many other legal issues that may occur negligently, intentionally or recklessly, and some even innocently, including the wrongful conduct of such as deceit, conspiracy, interference in contractual relations or economic relations, some of which may be unfamiliar without diligent review to even very experienced legal professionals.

“... I include myself among those who had never heard of the tort of barratry ...”
~ C.A. Osborne A.C.J.O.
McIntyre Estate v. Ontario, 2001 CanLII 7972 (ON CA)

As above, even a highly experienced and knowledgeable Court of Appeal judge can be unfamiliar with all aspects of tort law; and accordingly, with dozens of legally recognized torts applicable to various forms of wrongdoing, it is necessary to carefully review the relevant law prior to bringing litigation as a Plaintiff or prior to preparing a defence strategy as a Defendant.
