A tort is a civil wrong not arising out of a contract or statute. Torts can be intentional torts - such as battery or defamation - and torts can arise from negligence.

A tort is an act that injures someone in some way, and for which the injured person may sue the wrongdoer for damages. Perhaps property was lost or damaged, or perhaps someone was injured or killed. Tort claims come in all sizes, and Mr. Campbell has handled tort claims as serious as multiple wrongful death claims arising from a fire, and as small as a nuisance claim for blowing dust during a highway construction project, and all sizes of claims in between.
