A Skilled Mediator Serving Kentucky and Florida

W. David Shearer, Jr.Tort Law is a civil wrong that is not based on contract but rather on an act or omission to act by one party against another. There are several different types of Torts but the most common is negligence which is a failure to exercise ordinary care. There are four elements to a tort claim as follows: (1) a duty is owed by one person to another (2) a breach of that duty; (3) the breach must have been the proximate cause of the injury; and (4) actual injury or damages to the plaintiff.
