Why Do You Need a Tort Lawyer?
A tort litigation attorney is well versed in an array of tort claims and laws. Defending a tort claim can be complex and lengthy. In defending a tort claim, businesses face economic losses from claim payment, defense costs, and administrative costs.
Defending a tort claim as a business or individual can bring many challenges, especially on how to allocate resources and the time involved in litigation. This is why it is imperative to hire an experienced tort litigation attorney to minimize the burden and challenges associated with being sued.
What Is Tort Litigation?
A tort, or negligence claim can be brought under both state and federal laws. The most common examples of tort claims include:
- Automobile accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Negligence actions
- Products liability
- Slip and fall
Tort cases are generally resolved through settlement or dismissal. In the latest reporting year, roughly 2 out of every 1,000 Americans filed a tort lawsuit. Additionally, according to the National Center for State Courts (NCSC), less than 5% of all civil court filings are tort lawsuits. Despite these statistics, frivolous tort lawsuits are a massive problem to the viability of a business.
