Tort

Civil liability for breach of obligations imposed by law 

 

The most common tort is the tort of negligence, which imposes an obligation not to breach a duty of care.  That is, the duty to behave as a reasonable person would behave in the circumstances, which the law says is owed to those who may foreseeably be injured by any particular conduct
