TOPIC- Act of God

 Act of God is a legal term for events outside human control, such as sudden floods or other natural disasters, for which no one can be held responsible.

When something occurs over which you have no control and it is effected of accentuated by the forces of nature then you are not liable in tort law for such inadvertent damage that may arise out of such. However if you were well aware of the risks and could have possibly taken steps to stop the wrongful act or damaging act or have in anyway mitigated it then you cannot duck responsibility under this defence.

Constituents of this defence:

  • Due to forces of nature or unnatural circumstances.
  • You had no control over it and it happened suddenly.
  • You had no knowledge or could not do anything to mitigate the damage.
