The "Tort of Negligence" is simply a breach of the duty by a wrong-doer of a reasonable standard of care which is recognized by society, as a whole, as being reasonable. It is called the "Reasonable Person Standard". If that conduct is breached and causes somebody damages, those people who were damaged can simply go to court and seek a “Damages Remedy” to be compensated for the harm that occurred to them.
