Business Torts in Florida
Are You Involved in Business Tort Litigation?
A business tort involves wrongs done to another in the course of business.
They may involve misrepresentation, interfering with another's contract,
disruption of another's business relationship or unfair competition.
If you have been hurt by another in business, you should consider seeking
damages. On the other hand, if you have been sued for business torts,
you need strong defense. In either case Rosenthal Law Group is ready to
help you with experienced legal representation wherever you live in the
state of Florida. You are urged to contact a
Florida business litigation lawyer.
Examples of Business Tort
Misrepresentation Tort: This type of misconduct involves intentionally misrepresenting a material
fact to others to induce them to purchase a product, loan money, or enter
into an agreement. An example would be overstating one's income when
selling a business. A claim may also arise from failing to disclose a
material fact such as a seller concealing construction flaws or environmental
issues from a prospective property buyer.
Interference with Contractual Relations: In this case a person knows about contract between two other persons and
intentionally goes about disrupting it. As an example, a contractor may
be building a house for a customer. A competitor urges the customer to
fire the contractor in the middle of the project for no valid reason.
Interference with Prospective Business Advantage: Torts of this nature involve no contract but a business relationship likely
to benefit a party. A third person knowingly goes about breaking up the
relationship. For example a plumbing contractor may have a close association
with a developer based on considerable good work in the past and expects
to do further work for the developer in an upcoming subdivision. Entering
the picture, a competitor alienates the developer from the plumber by
spreading lies about the plumber.
