Torts and Personal Injuries

Maybe you’ve heard the phrase “tort reform” and wondered what exactly it meant. Or you’ve been injured in an accident and you're wondering if you have a legal claim. "Torts" are simply personal injuries caused by civil (as opposed to criminal) wrongs. This generally means that the wrong was unintended, but tort lawsuits can include everything from car accident injuries to injuries stemming from assaults, the invasion of privacy, wrongful death, and many others. FindLaw’s Torts and Personal Injuries section has resources to help you learn more about a wide range of torts.
