Best Answer

A tortious liability is related to the duty of care, and negligence of that duty, with respect to persons with whom there is no contractual liability.

For example, if a person fails to maintain his property and part of his property falls off and injures another person, the property owner is liable for the damages to that person, even though it may be a passerby with whom there are no contractual obligations.

A contractual liability is created when two or more parties promise certain things to each other. A person may engage someone to clean their house in exchange for an agreed amount of money. If either party defaults on the agreement, that is breach of contract and legal remedies are available to the 'injured' party.

The law of tort covers many matters of life, and the law of contract is similarly extensive.

What are the different between tortious liability and contractual liability?

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.
