Overview of Tortious Negligence Actions Law
Tort law is the body of law that deals with torts, or civil wrongs. Torts are civil wrongs committed by one person against another. They can be intentional or negligent in nature and arise from many different situations, such as accidents at work or on the road; failure to pay wages; medical malpractice; sexual harassment; false imprisonment; invasion of privacy; defamation (libel/slander). Torts are one of the most common types of lawsuits in civil courts. Tort law is concerned with protecting people from wrongs committed by others. Torts may be intentional or negligent in nature. Intentional torts are those where the person committing the act knew that it would result in harm to another person. Negligent torts occur when a person does not exercise reasonable care, which results in injury to another person.
Tortious Negligence Actions
Tortious negligence is a legal term that refers to a person’s liability for causing harm to another person. In the context of tort law, the term “negligence” refers to a failure or omission in one’s duty of care towards others, resulting in injury or damage. The elements of tortious negligence can be broken down into four categories: duty, breach of duty (or lack thereof), causation, and damages sustained by the plaintiff as a result of this breach. The following is an example of a state statute defining tortious negligence: “Negligence is the failure to exercise the degree of care that a reasonably prudent person would have exercised in similar circumstances or the failure to do something that a reasonably prudent person would do, which results in an injury to another.

Strict Liability Tortious Negligence Actions
Strict liability is a form of legal liability in which a person is responsible for the consequences of their actions, regardless of intent. It is distinguished from ordinary negligence (or breach) in that it does not require an individual to prove that another person breached a duty of care owed to them; rather, strict liability allows courts to impose civil penalties even if no such breach occurred. Strict liability has been applied in situations where:
- The defendant had exclusive control over the product; or
- The plaintiff suffered harm because they used the product as intended by its manufacturer or seller.
