    21. 21. Tort Summary➡ A Tort is a civil wrong that causes injury or damage which brings monetary compensation➡ Intentional Tort, Negligence Strict Liability are some of the main categories of Torts➡ Intentional Tort is when a person has desired to bring, or knew the result that would follow them➡ Negligence is the largest of the Torts which is caused by failure to use reasonable care➡ Strict Liability is the responsibility of harm whether or not you have displayed fault➡ Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress requires an act of extreme or outrageous conduct (Performed by Bill Clinton)➡ To know if it has used the “cause-and-effect” you have to first prove without the act, the action would not have occurred. Also the substantial factor test which has a significant role in bringing about the event➡ All four elements must be met, as the plaintiff has to suffer severe emotional distress of pain and suffering➡ The defendant has to show either the plaintiff’s susceptibility to distress was severe and what the defendant did, the distress would not have resulted or that the defendant was a substantial factor in producing it
