The term 'quasi-delict' is used in civil law to refer to a negligent act or omission which results in harm or damage to an individual or to the property of another. The person causing the harm or damage may do so without any malice, but may nonetheless be found at fault as a result of being negligent and/or imprudent. This exposes the individual to civil liability in the same way as if the act or omission was intentional.
