What is tort law?
Tort law addresses the wrongs that an individual may suffer from due to another party’s negligence or intent to do harm. It covers a wide variety of civil wrongs that do not involve contract law. Under tort law, you can press charges if someone is liable for damages to you, such as physical suffering from a car accident if a drunk driver hit you.
The financial compensation awarded to you from a tort case is meant to make up for the suffering and damages that you sustained after the accident. In the case of a car wreck, you may be eligible to receive compensation for medical bills as well as lost wages from your recovery.
Tort law can be complicated since you have to prove the exact damages that you sustained as well as the intent to harm or negligence of the party at fault. For help you with your case, contact the Iowa auto accident attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., today at 877-327-2600.
