Question: I called my auto insurance company to have a company replace my window in my auto the glass installer damaged my car. My insurance company said it was not one of their authorized dealers so they can help me. I want to take the glass company to small claims court to see if i can get resolution for the cost of the damages the paper work ask if this is a contract or tort. I did not sign a contract with the glass company so I'm confused as to what to use for the type of claim on the paper work.

Answer: A tort is a civil wrong. A tort lawsuit would arise because of a wrongdoing from one party against another. A contract lawsuit would arise if there was some kind of damage due to a breach of the agreement. The agreement does not necessarily have to be in writing. Only certain types of contracts need to be in writing to be valid. For advice specific to your case please consult an attorney.
