A tort claim refers to a legal action taken to seek compensation for harm or injury caused by another person's wrongful actions or negligence. Torts are civil wrongs, as opposed to criminal wrongs.


Tort claims can arise in a variety of contexts, such as personal injury, medical malpractice, and product liability.


In a personal injury case, for example, the plaintiff (the person who was harmed) may file a tort claim against the defendant (the person or entity who caused the harm) seeking compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.


In a product liability case, the plaintiff may file a tort claim against the manufacturer or distributor of a defective product, seeking compensation for any injuries or damages caused by the product.


In general, a tort claim is a legal action taken to seek compensation for harms and injuries caused by another person's wrongful actions or negligence.


In summary, a tort claim is a legal action taken to seek compensation for harm or injury caused by another person's wrongful actions or negligence. Torts can arise in a variety of contexts such as personal injury, medical malpractice, and product liability.
