Document Summary

Tort: a harm caused by one person to another, other than through breach of contract, and for which the law provides a remedy. Tort law provides a means whereby compensation, usually in the form of damages, may be paid for. Trespass to land: wrongful interference with someone"s possession of land: e. g. leaving your car in a parking garage without buying a ticket. Deceit or fraud: a false representation intentionally or recklessly made by one person to another that causes damage: e. g. customer buys a car that is said to have a new engine and it actually doesn"t. Tort law seeks to impose liability based on fault. If what happens is not reasonably foreseeable, the person has not committed a tort. Liability will vary from province to province. A central function of tort law is to compensate an injured party when the injury is the result of someone else"s blameworthy conduct. Tort law does not provide remedy in all circumstances.
