Defamation is defined as an inaccurate accusation that is made against a person or a business.
The definition of defamation can be divided into two types: libel and slander. Defamation relies on the meaning of actions or words to classify if the case is under libel or slander.
The purpose of defamation is usually to degrade a person or business’ reputation. Defamation cases have increased in recent years due to the increased popularity of social media.
An important point to note is that a case is not defamatory if the facts and information given are true. In a defamation case, a judge determines whether the words or actions given their natural and ordinary meaning would damage the claimant’s reputation.
Professional negligence is defined as inadequate or incorrect service provided by a professional.
As an individual, you are entitled to file a claim under the grounds of professional negligence if you have received a below-par service, whether resulting from mistakes or negligence by an expert and as a result, you have incurred loss or damage.
Typical cases include but are not limited to engineers, veterinary experts, doctors, medics, accountants, lawyers, financial advisors and architects. There are a lot of scenarios that can lead to a professional negligence claim. Some common cases are a breach of copyright, poor business strategy recommendation, failure to complete a project on time or as agreed and more.
Civil fraud is defined as intentional or deliberate deception aimed for the enrichment of a perpetrator. It may be conducted for financial or personal enrichment. Also known as fraudulent misrepresentation, the false statement is dishonesty that affects a person who relies on that information and as a consequence of trusting that statement, suffers some damage or loss of assets.
There are various causes of action covered by fraud. Some claims that are filed under the grounds of fraud may be easily proved while others can take years of proceedings.
Matters relating to fraud are, but not limited to, misrepresentation, breach of trust, contractual breach, unjust enrichment, money laundering, bribery, abuse of position, and dishonest assistance.
Private Information Misuse
The misuse of private or confidential information can lead to various consequences, including losses to individuals as well as businesses. Examples include unjustified and unauthorised disclosure of private and confidential information to the public.
When establishing a misuse of private information, a judge asks the claimant if they had a reasonable expectation that the information disclosed would be kept private. If the claimant says yes, the judge will analyse the claimant’s right based on Article 8 versus the defendant’s right of freedom of expression that’s stated in Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights to settle the dispute.
