Introduction to Torts

Torts is a medieval French word meaning “wrong” or “wrongful act” done to a person’s body, property or reputation. This act could have been done with, or without deliberate intention. In Criminal Law the state prosecutes the wrongdoer, therefore, the major focus is on the punishing of the wrongdoer.  In Torts the victim of the wrongful act sues the wrongdoer for damages (money), and the main focus is on compensation of the victim by the wrongdoer.  The two at times may overlap.

Torts looks at the state of mind of the wrongdoer while committing the wrongful act or conduct.   Below is a very brief presentation focusing on, and giving examples of the 7 Levels of Guilty Mentality.
