Tort is the law of civil wrongs. Tort law usually provides people with the rights to compensation when another person harms their legally protected interests. For instance, if somebody throws a ball and it accidentally
hits a pedestrian in the eye, any costs of medical treatment and
compensation for lost income during time off work could be paid by the
person who threw the ball to the person who was hurt. As well as bodily
integrity, certain liberties are protected, such as the right to one's
reputation. If a newspaper publishes a defamatory
statement about a celebrity which is untrue, the paper may have to pay
damages as a way of demonstrating they were wrong.
The majority of tort cases concern road accidents, accidents in the workplace or medical accidents.
Hi Luckiest...thanks for trying but that doesn't help. I am attorney, so I know all about torts :) I researched the D.C. code and found that non-profits organized in the District must be corporations so I would have the same protection as that a corporation would have (I would not be personally liable and would only be at risk of losing my investment).
Here's a good free website that should be helpful. Although it's relatively new, it seems to be posting good information. This is a specific post to starting a new business and what legal entity to choose. I'd say go with LLC since it's tough to secure non profit status.
Thanks elpelp! I will check it out!

Hi all! I am starting a preschool and I am trying to decide whether I want to make it a regular company (and LLC) or a non-profit. As the sole owner, I would be taking a salary in either form, so money is not my concern. My issue is for tort and contract liability reasons, would I also be insulated as a non-profit organization? Does anyone know how non-profits are tax (ex. as a partnership)?
Thanks for your help!
