There are two types of acts that yield tort liability - negligent acts and intentional acts - and those acts yield negligence and intentional tort claims. This paper provides an overview of tort law and examines how it is dealt with in a court of law.

From the Paper:

"Finally, tort law does not always involve one wrongdoer and one victim. In fact, both parties can have some liability for the harm incurred, or multiple parties can be responsible for the damages. In order to determine liability for the damages, one must explore the possibilities of contributory and comparative negligence, joint and several liability, and assumption of the risk. The laws determining liability vary by state. For example, in some jurisdictions joint tortfeasors are only individually liable only for the proportion of damages they caused, while in other jurisdictions joint tortfeasors are jointly and severably liable."
