What is Tort Law? - Personal Injury Legal Blogs Posted by Mr. Robert Daniel Dodson - Lawyers.com

Robert Dodson, experienced Columbia personal injury lawyer, explains the "standard of care" and advises how tort law applies to the modern justice system…

One of the main discussions about tort law today is determining the "standard of care", which means; distinguishing between when conduct is or is not tortuous; or, whether a person suffers the loss from his own injury, or whether it gets transferred to someone else.  When reviewing a personal injury law suit in Columbia, tort law is the body of law that helps classify and identify a person who suffers legal damages to receive compensation from someone who is legally responsible.  Tort law defines and establishes the circumstances under which one person may be held liable. 

Please contact experienced personal injury lawyers in your area if you have been injured, and have any specific questions to your case.
