Louisiana Personal Injury Law: The Foundation of Louisiana Tort Law

“Every act whatever of man that causes damages to another obliges him by whose fault it happened to repair it.” Louisiana Civil Code article 2315.

Article 2315 is the foundation of Louisiana Tort Law. This Louisiana Civil Code article is so important that on the first day of of my Torts I class at the LSU Law Center, Professor Frank Maraist instructed our class that we would not pass the class without being able to write Article 2315 verbatim on the final exam.
