INTRODUCTION TO TORT LAW - Tort Definition, Essential Elements, Liability, and Remedies in Tort

The Law of Torts is a fascinating subject to study and learn about. Although it is not a complicated law, it needs a certain level of expertise to distinguish between tort law and other wrongs. Considering that we are taking the CS Executive Entrance Test (CSEET), which will consist of Objective Type/Multiple Choice questions, let us examine tort law from a similar perspective, where we understand torts in a more granular manner.


Meaning of Tort :

The tort is a legal term that refers to a civil wrong.

The term tort is the French counterpart of the word wrong in English. The term "Tort" comes from the Latin word "Tortum," which translates as "twisted."

The tort is defined as a civil wrong that causes a claimant to suffer loss or suffering, resulting in legal accountability for the person who does the unlawful act on the claimant's behalf.


Parties — in a Tort, there has two parties.

a. A plaintiff is a person who has been injured or has suffered a loss due to another's negligence - the party who has been wronged or hurt.

b. Tort feasor– is a person who is accountable for the plaintiff's harm and liable for the damage produced by the improper conduct committed by that person. The defendant is a term that is often used.


Define Tort:

A tort is defined as any act or omission by the tort feasor that results in loss, injury, or damage to the plaintiff or their property.


Define Tort Law:

People who have experienced injury (i.e., the aggrieved person) due to the unjust conduct of others are entitled to redress under the law of torts, which is tested by the courts in civil procedures to provide relief for them (i.e. the tort feasor).


Important Component of Tort:

It is only if the following three fundamental characteristics of Tort are present that the unjust conduct is considered a tort. The act or inaction must be unlawful because it causes harm. It also is necessary that the damages be legally recognized. It is also necessary to have a legal remedy available in a wrongful act or action. As a result, no civil wrong may be classified as a tort.


Terminology used in the legal field:

A. Damnum Sine Injuria (Damage without injuries) -  This is the situation in which the Damage occurs without the desire to injure. In cases when the conduct is not improper, it will be considered the exercise of a legal right by one party that causes harm to the other indirectly by the same party.

Consider the following scenario: A runs a stationery business close to a school and has monopolistic power. Meanwhile, B establishes a stationery business just across the street from A's. B is just exercising his legal right to conduct a company, but this will have a negative impact on A's monopoly position and earnings because of the competition. As a result, Damage may exist without causing Injury.


B. The Latin phrase "Injuria Sine Damnum" means "Injury Without Damage." This is the situation in which an injury lingers without causing any harm. In contrast, even if there is no evidence of damage, the act will be considered to have caused harm.
Consider the following scenario: X owns the copyrights to a book. While unaware of the copyright, Y attempts to print more copies of the book without obtaining permission from the author. As a result, even though the harm cannot be measured, the act of Y constitutes an injury even in the absence of damage.


C. Mens Rea - Intent to commit a crime It refers to the element of guilt associated with the crime. It is the mental component of a person's desire to commit a crime known as mensrea. The act or omission must be committed with the intent to harm or with gross carelessness.
As an example, K and S are related. K borrows S's automobile for a short period. Unfortunately, the automobile is involved in an accident, resulting in damage. It is possible that K has caused harm due to his carelessness and is thus obligated to pay for the damages. He didn't do anything on purpose, and it wasn't his fault.


On the other hand, S borrows one of K's automobiles the next week and deliberately does damage to it to fulfill his criminal purpose to exact a pleasant vengeance on K. S, in this case, had a criminal intent to harm. However, K did not do it on purpose. Mensrea is the name of the character.


Liability of Tort:

Tort Liability are 2 types;

  1. Vicarious Liability
  2. Absolute or Strict Liability


Liability in an Absolute or Strict Manner:

Absolute or Strict Liability is a legal concept that states that a person may be found guilty even though they had no intention of committing a crime. To put it another way, the defendant is held accountable, although he did nothing wrong.

D, for example, is a cautious driver who follows the regulations of the road and the legal speed limits. While driving along a highway, G saw a pedestrian run out in front of the vehicle to cross the road in front of him. Eventually, D was unable to maintain control of the car and crashed into G. Although D was not to blame, he would be labeled a wrongdoer.

The following categories are included under Absolute/Strict Liability:

  1. Liability for an Unavoidable Accident — For example, suppose Dr. P, a scientist, traveled by public transportation with certain research chemicals that finally ruptured and caused smoke and suffocation among the passengers.
  2. Liability for an Inevitable Mistake — For example, suppose E, a pedestrian, is forced to trespass into the Defense Quarters without realizing that entry is forbidden to retrieve his certificates that have become airborne due to inclement weather.
  3. If the blame is given to others on social policy grounds, this is known as vicarious liability for wrongs perpetrated by others (or vicarious liability for wrongs committed by others). As a result of his servant's actions, the Master is held accountable.


Exceptions to Absolute/Strict Liability include the following:

  • Statutory Authority
  • Escape due to plaintiff’s own Default
  • Damage due to natural use of land
  • Act of third party
  • Act of God
  • Consent of the plaintiff


Define Vicarious Liability:

Vicarious responsibility is the legal concept in which one is held liable for the actions. For example, a master is vicariously responsible for the tort of his servant; a principal is vicariously liable for the tort of his agent, and so on. Here are a few illustrations:

A principal and an agent (also known as a specific authority) are two terms that refer to the person who acts via another as acting himself. Because of this, when an agent violates the law while performing their obligations as an agent, the principal is accountable for the violation.

Authority by Relationship between a Master and a Servant - A master is responsible for a tort committed by a servant while acting during his employment with the master. In this instance, both the Servant and the Master are jointly and severally responsible.


Independent Contractor and Employer

If an employer is found to have committed a tort, such as any of the following, they will be accountable for the actions of an Independent Contractor.

  1. In torts of strict liability
  2. When employer authorizes the contractor to commit a tort
  3. Negligence of contractor

If the employer has exercised reasonable care in the selection of the contractor, the employer is accountable for the contractor's actions.

Responsibilities for servants' actions - When a servant commits a tort within the course of their work, the employer is accountable for the harm caused. Because of this, if an act is any of the following, it is considered to be performed in the course of employment:

Employees are permitted by their employers to engage in unlawful behavior or unlawful and illegal ways of accomplishing some act.


The State of Vicarious Liability

Following the passage of the Crown Proceedings Act, 1947, the Crown is held vicariously accountable for the torts committed by its employees, in the same way as private individuals are held guilty.

In India - Unlike England, there is no legislative provision defining the State's obligation in the event of an accident. On the other hand, article 300 of the Constitution provides that the Government of India may sue or be sued in the name of the Union of India and that the State Government may sue or be sued in the name of the State. In this regard, it should be emphasized that the Court considers whether the role was one of sovereign authority or one of non-authority when determining whether there was a tort. If the government performs a sovereign role, it may claim immunity from tort responsibility.


Torts or Wrongs to personal safety and freedom:

An action for damages may be brought for any wrongs listed below that are interpreted as injuries to a person. They are as follows:

  1. Battery requires the presence of two elements: the use of force (regardless of how little the force may be) without the plaintiff's agreement and the absence of any legal basis for the use of force.
  2. Assault is a tort in which the tort feasor causes the plaintiff to be fearful that he is about to conduct a battery against him by instilling fear in his mind that he will do so.
  3. A tort feasor's intentional conduct to cause physical injury or calculate to cause physical harm to the plaintiff is referred to as "bodily harm."
  4. True Imprisonment: This tort refers to the act of restricting or detaining or imposing someone's movement against his or her will without a legal justification. False Imprisonment is defined as the act of restricting or detaining someone's movement against his or her will without a legal justification.
  5. Malicious prosecution: This refers to the establishment of court proceedings with the goal of causing injury to the plaintiff's reputation, personal freedom, or property without a justifiable basis in law.
  6. Defamation: When someone attacks the reputation of another person with the purpose of lowering their social rank in society, this is referred to as defamation. It might be in the form of libel (permanent) or slander (temporary).


Torts Remedies:

Judicial Remedies

There are three categories of court remedies available to the Plaintiff, which are as follows:

  1. Injunction
  2. Damages
  3. Specific restitution of property


Extra Judicial Remedies

It seems that, in the absence of a court order, it is legal to seek restitution for one's harms using self-help methods. A few of these cures are as follows:

  1. Self Defence – It is permissible to defend oneself against any illegal activity.
  2. Prevention of Trespass – Ownership is prohibited from accessing the property by the occupant.
  3. Re-entry on land – Regaining control of land that had been unlawfully disposed of
  4. Re-caption of goods – Regain control of property that has been wrongfully confiscated or detained
  5. Abatement of nuisance – legitimately abate any nuisance that is causing harm to others
  6. Distress Damage Feasant – Obtaining the authorised seizure of cattle that are infringing on the plaintiff's property and holding them until recompense for the harm is obtained.
