TORT CLAIMS IN EDMONTON
SIDHU LAWYERS, EDMONTON PERSONAL INJURY
A tort is a civil wrong that results in the victim suffering some form of harm, either physical or emotional. The harm can be either economic, such as loss of income, or noneconomic, such as pain and suffering. Torts can be either intentional, such as assault or battery, or unintentional, such as negligence.
WHAT IS A TORT CLAIM?
A tort claim is a demand for compensation for the harm that was caused by the tortious act. The victim of the tort may bring a claim against the person who committed the act, or against a third party who is liable for the act. The victim may also bring a claim against the person who committed the act if that person has some form of insurance that will cover the claim.
The first step in bringing a tort claim is to determine whether the act was indeed a tort. This can be difficult, as there are many different types of torts and many different ways in which a person can be harmed. Once it has been determined that the act was a tort, the next step is to gather evidence to support the claim. This may include medical records, police reports, witness statements, and any other documentation that can help to prove the harm that was caused.
Once the evidence has been gathered, the victim will need to file a claim with the appropriate court. The claim will need to be served on the person who committed the act, or on their insurance company. The victim will then have to attend a hearing, where they will present their evidence and argue their case. If the victim is successful, they will be awarded damages, which may include compensation for the harm that was caused, as well as for any economic losses that were incurred.
To win a tort claim, the injured person must prove that the other person was at fault for the accident. This can be difficult to do on your own.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Intentional torts are when the person committing the tort knows their actions will cause harm to another person. An example of an intentional tort is assault.
Negligence torts are when the person committing the tort doesn’t intend to cause harm but does so through carelessness or inaction. An example of negligence is certain types of car accidents.
Strict liability torts are when the person committing the tort may not have intended to cause harm but can be held liable anyway due to the nature of their actions. An example of a strict liability tort includes the ability to sue an employer over the actions of the employee, e.g. a delivery driver and their employer both getting sued for a car accident caused by the employee.
