While personal injury cases may make up the majority of tort cases in the American legal system, there are numerous other types of torts that occur every day. Generally speaking, a tort occurs when a wrongful act occurs. Examples of torts include assault and battery, the intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment, defamation, interference with business, and many more.
