The Tort Law Specialist

Tort law seeks to remedy civil wrongs that result in harm to person or property. The parameters of tort law specify how we assign a duty of responsibility to certain actors, assess damages, and determine the distribution of burdens for the everyday risks of harm that exist in modern society, in business and in everyday life. Tort law and mass tort actions also serve as a deterrent to harmful activity that might otherwise go unchecked.

There was a lot of help along the way, which was great. It was smooth and everything went well.
