Claims Relating To Interference With Goods

Claims Relating To Interference With Goods

If someone wrongly interferes with your goods and causes damage or injury this would constitute a tort (a civil wrong) and you may have a claim for negligence, just as you would if damage occurred to any other kind of property. To succeed in such a claim you would need to show that:

  • you were owed a duty of care
  • duty of care was breached
  • the breach caused damage or injury

Legislation has been developed to deal with cases where the harm relates simply to goods, rather than any other form of property.

Whether you are an individual, entrepreneur, company or partnership, going through a disagreement of this type can be complex and time consuming. This is why it is important you are able to speak to legal experts who can provide all the guidance you need to emerge from a dispute with the result you are after.

The Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977 (TIGA 1977) defines wrongful interference with goods as:

  • conversion of goods
  • trespass to goods
  • negligence so far as it relates to damage to goods
  • any other tort which results in damage to goods

Section 2(1) of TIGA 1977 abolishes the old tort of detinue. This was where there was a wrongful refusal to deliver goods to the individual entitled or in having custody or possession of an individual’s goods and subsequently losing them.

“The Solicitors were very skilled and managed my corporate business matter very efficiently. Their level of communication was excellent and they were extremely effective in negotiations. I will be remaining as a permanent client.”
