There is more freedom in contractual law where as in tortuous liability it is more of imposed nature. The claimant will receive compensation for damages and expected earnings in the case of contract liability where as the claimant can only claim damages as in the case of tortuous liability. There is more privacy in the contract in the case of contractual liabilities as the parties who are involved in the contract are the one who can actually sue for damages as in the case of ATKIN V SOUNDERS(1942) whereas in tortuous liabilities any one as a third party who had suffered losses or damages can claim compensation from the defendant.
