Protecting Your Rights and Fighting for Compensation
When a business or individual causes injury to someone else, the legal ramifications for both sides are usually quite extensive. Generally speaking, the injured party must prove fault. When and if they do, they must then prove the extent of their injuries. Such cases often involve complex questions of law, science, and medicine.

Experienced advice is essential to surviving such claims, and our attorneys offer experienced advice combined with compassion and commitment.

Types of Tort Matters We Represent in California
Tort law is a legal area that deals with civil wrongs or injuries suffered by one person due to the actions or omissions of another person. At The Green Firm, we handle all types of torts, including those described here.
Negligence occurs when someone breaches their duty of care towards another person, causing harm or injury. For example, a driver who causes an accident due to texting while driving can be held liable for negligence.
Intentional torts are acts that are done with the intent of causing harm or injury to another person. Examples include assault, battery, false imprisonment, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Strict liability applies in situations where a person is held responsible for injuries or damages even if they were not negligent or acted with intent. For example, manufacturers of defective products can be held strictly liable for any injuries caused by the defects.
Defamation occurs when someone makes a false statement that harms another person’s reputation. Slander involves spoken statements, while libel involves written statements.
Nuisance involves actions that interfere with a person’s use and enjoyment of their property. For example, a factory that emits noxious fumes that affect the neighboring properties can be held liable for nuisance.
Product liability refers to the legal responsibility of manufacturers, sellers, and distributors for injuries caused by defective products.
