Tort refers to a civil wrong or infringement of one's civil right. In tort law, the injury suffered by a person is known as damage and the compensation provided for the injury is known as damages. In our day-to-day life, we come across various widespread losses such as gas leaks, industrial blasts, collapsing of buildings, and many such. Under tort law, one has the right to claim compensation for the injuries suffered. This paper specifically talks about the types of compensation awarded under the law of tort and the recent trends in the compensation awarded for widespread losses.
