Sometimes our everyday actions and choices have significant impact on the experience of other people, even affecting their level of comfort and safety. When an individual breaches the civil rights of another, it is known as a civil wrong or Tort. This programme outlines the definition and purpose of Tort law, including negligence, nuisance, trespass and defamation. What can you do when you find an insect in your food or when your neighbour is constantly noisy? Viewers will see how such problems can be addressed and several legal experts explain how Tort Law was developed.
