What is a Tort?

What is a Tort?

Hi guys. I'm Chris Parks. I'm a personal injury lawyer in Boulder, Colorado. What is a tort?

Well, in the legal business, a tort is a negligent act. To give you an example; someone runs a stop sign and hits one of my clients. That is a tort and that would result in what's called a tort lawsuit.

Really, we're usually talking about the word negligence, which is saying that the person was negligent when they ran through the stop sign and hit my person.

If you hear the word tort, that's what we're talking about. Injury cases; people making a mistake and causing an injury.
