Business and injury law cross with tortious interference claims

When a New Jersey resident is harmed in a car accident, the person often incurs damages related to the collision. People may, in the wake of the accident, have medical bills to pay as well as repair costs associated with fixing a vehicle. People may miss time at work and experience economic losses related to losing hours on the job. When a physical event inflicts harm on a person, tort or personal injury law provides that victim with avenues to pursue the person's losses.

In the business world, there are different risks. Not every deal that a business person enters into is insured or guaranteed against loss with legal protections. In fact, part of doing business is recognizing that loss is practically always possible and taking steps to ensure that those risks are minimized.

There are, however, situations in which business loss is not part of the normal course of risk a business person can expect. When another party deliberately takes steps to interfere with the contracts, practices or operations of a business and that party inflicts harm on the company, a tort or injury-based cause of action exists. That claim is tortious interference and it represents the area where injury law and business law meet.

Generally and as with other forms of tort claims, a business must lose out on an expected gain or lose already-possessed value in order to bring a tortious interference cause of action. The attorneys of the Donnelly Ritigstein Law Offices can help business owners who are unsure of whether their losses are related to a tort to better understand the required elements of proving a case of tortious interference.

Injuries, whether personal or business-related, are generally compensable under the law. Victims of tortious conduct deserve to have their losses covered by those who negligently or intentionally cause their harm. Our firm can help people pursue their business' tortious claims and get back the economic harm they have suffered due to other parties' interference.
