Business torts refer to civil wrongs that involve an organization. Most notably, they handle dealings with intangible (albeit important) aspects of the business. For example, when a party purposely and wrongfully interferes with a contract to unfair competition, they are liable for a business tort lawsuit.
Examples of such “Intangible” Actions
While a business tort case can cover many things, some of the most important aspects involve the type of things you cannot see. For example, these cases involve wrongfully damaging a competitor’s reputation, breaching contracts in a way that impacts shareholders, or meddling in a firm’s business relationships.
The thing is – these are offenses punishable by law. These guidelines are why you don’t see companies running around and making up lies about their competition to increase their business. These kinds of things are not acceptable (and not the characteristic of good business practice). Furthermore, these violations can permanently damage a company and its success – so these actions can result in punishment.
How do I Collect Evidence?
Although things like relationships or reputation are intangible, there is very objective evidence you may obtain. Collecting the proof that such actions took place is crucial for getting the case in the right direction. Going about it is simple – investigate how these damages happened.
Were they sending out false advertisements or commercials? Collect them. Where they sending out messages to your customers or leaking incorrect information to clients? Try to grab screenshots of the messages, obtain proof of the phone calls, or simply call in a few witnesses.
Although it is difficult to mend a tarnished reputation or grow hurt relationships, victims should not be left alone to suffer. You must bring violators to justice.
Is it Worth Getting a Lawyer?
Once you decide to continue with these legal proceedings, it is wise to consult a legal professional. Lawyers have the experience and resources you need to continue with these legal actions. Business tort cases may get messy or complicated, so you must have the perfect team to bring your party to justice. Lawsuits are stressful – let an experienced professional take a bit of the burden away.
