Tort Law is a branch of civil law that deals with civil wrongs and damage that one party causes to another due to their wrongful actions or negligence. The person who suffers harm can sue the other party for damages or compensation.

In simpler terms, imagine if you have a neighbor named Bob. One day, Bob decides to trim his tree but accidentally drops a large branch onto your car, causing damage. Since Bob’s negligence led to your car’s damage, that falls under Tort Law. You can take Bob to court and if the court agrees that Bob was negligent, he may have to pay for the repair of your car. That’s basically what Tort Law is all about – finding out who was responsible for a particular harm and making right the wrong that was done.
