Quasi-tort – within the sphere of Tort Law this legal term refers to delict (civil wrong) that cannot be qualified as negligence, neither as contractual liability. Usually the quasi-tort occurs in situation, where a person who did not commit the tort or the wrongful action that caused the tort, but is legally liable for it. Many legal systems create such legal liability for damages on the base of quasi-tort doctrine, although the defendant may not be guilty in certain situations. Such legal liability for remedy rises because the injured person who suffered tort should be compensated, to a condition as if the tort never occurred. Somewhere the quasi-tort is known as third type of civil wrong or quasi-delict.
