Breach of duty fixed by law
A man is bound to observe certain rules made by the society being a member of society. Tortious liability arises from breach of a duty fixed by law. In cases of breach of such duties, the aggrieved party can initiate a legal proceeding against the wrongdoers in a court of law. The court may award damages to the plaintiff for such act or omission. A person, on the other hand, cannot be compelled to give damages to any person for breach of social and religious duties. Tortious liability does not arise from a contract or consent between parties.
