What are Pure Economic losses?
Pure economic loss is the financial harm or loss that a person or entity experiences without any accompanying damage to property or physical injury. This legal concept recognizes the economic consequences suffered by someone due to the omissions or actions of another party, even though there is no direct physical impact.
What are the Different Types of Pure Economic losses?
Pure economic loss damages can include:
Loss of Profits
When a business suffers financial losses such as contractual breaches, negligent advice, or defective products, it may result in lost profits.
Loss of Investment Opportunities
When making an investment decision, if someone relies on fraudulent representations or misleading information and incurs financial losses, it can be considered pure economic loss.
Interference with Economic Relationships
If a person's economic relationships are negatively impacted by someone's negligence, resulting in financial harm, it can be classified as pure economic loss.
When professionals fail to meet the expected standard of care, and their advice or actions lead to financial losses, it falls under pure economic loss.
If a party breaches a contract that results in financial losses for the other party, the damages suffered would typically be classified as pure economic loss.
Is there a difference between economic loss and pure economic loss?
Economic loss refers to the financial loss that someone suffers because of someone else's mistake or a broken contract.
Pure economic loss specifically refers to financial harm without any physical injury or damage to property.
What is the pure economic loss rule in torts?
The pure economic loss rule in torts restrict the recovery of damages for purely economic losses in the absence of physical injury or property damage.
What is an example of pure economic loss?
Pure economic loss can involve a situation where a negligent misstatement made by a professional causes financial harm. For example, if an accountant gives poor or inaccurate financial advice that results in substantial financial losses for a person or business, it would be considered a case of pure economic loss.
