A tort is an act or omission that gives rise to injury or harm to another and amounts to a civil wrong for which courts impose liability. This guide provides information on different torts, and links to publications and materials related to court actions involving tort liability.

DISCLAIMER

In our positions as librarians, not lawyers, we can suggest resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file) or legal opinions (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts). To do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law. Even though we try to suggest materials that will be of help, more research is often required to find a complete and correct answer. For many questions, the best answer may be to consult an attorney.
