Understanding Torts

Personal injury law revolves around torts. Torts are acts, or failures to act, that interfere with somebody's freedom to enjoy their personal and property rights.

Torts can be based on:

Negligence: This is the failure to exercise ordinary care. Examples of negligence are:

  • failure to maintain safe walking areas leading to slips and falls
  • poorly maintained playground equipment causing harm to children
  • ineffective or missing public and workplace safety procedures leading to physical or property damage
  • substandard or faulty structures, equipment, and vehicles, causing or contributing to accidents, pain, property damage, and loss of pay
  • professional failure by doctors, nurses or other health care providers to meet the community standard of medical care leading to, continuing, or even adding to pain and suffering.

Product Liability:  When a product causes harm to the consumer even when it is used normally and properly, the seller and manufacturer are held liable in such instances.

Willful Tort:  This means any intentional wrong. Typical examples of willful tort in New York are:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Defamation
  • Illegally invading a person's privacy
  • Intentionally inflicting emotional distress on another person.

If you are considering a lawsuit in New York based on a tort, you must act promptly. You may have a right to a monetary award, but you do not have forever to pursue that right. The statute of limitations will penalize your delay by foreclosing your rights.
