    What is a Tort?

    A civil wrong, also known as a tort, refers to a legal wrongdoing that results in harm or injury to another individual or their property. It is a fundamental concept in civil law jurisdictions and plays a crucial role in ensuring accountability and providing compensation for the victims of such wrongs

    Civil wrongs encompass a wide range of actions, and understanding their different types is essential for seeking legal recourse and obtaining compensation after an accident or incident that was caused by the negligence of another person or entity.


    What Are Civil Wrongs?

    In civil law jurisdictions, civil wrongs can be classified into different categories, each with its own set of legal principles and requirements. Some of the most common types of civil wrongs include:


    Negligence occurs when an individual fails to exercise reasonable care, resulting in harm or injury to another person. This type of civil wrong is prevalent in cases such as car accidents, slip and falls, and medical malpractice.

    Intentional torts

    Intentional torts involve deliberate acts that cause harm or injury to another person. Examples include assault, battery, defamation, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

    Strict liability

    Strict liability applies when a person or entity is held responsible for the damages caused, regardless of their intent or negligence. It typically applies in cases involving defective products, hazardous activities, or keeping dangerous animals.

    Product liability

    Product liability refers to situations where a defective product causes harm or injury to a consumer. This can result from manufacturing defects, design flaws, or inadequate warnings.

    Premises liability

    Premises liability holds property owners accountable for injuries that occur on their premises due to unsafe conditions or negligent maintenance. This can include slip and falls, inadequate security, or dangerous property conditions.

    Medical malpractice

    Medical malpractice involves negligence or misconduct by healthcare professionals that results in harm or injury to a patient. It can include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication mistakes, or improper treatment.

    Wrongful death

    Wrongful death claims arise when a person's death is caused by the negligent or intentional actions of another. These claims seek compensation for the losses suffered by the surviving family members.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
