Main Article Content
The Jordanian civil law was distinguished by drawing its provisions from Islamic jurisprudence. This was evident when it merged between absolute objective liability and restricted personal liability in its organization of tort liability, thus distinguishing it from the majority of comparative Arab legislation. Damage in the Jordanian civil law is the basis for tort liability. If the damage is direct, such as destruction and usurpation, the guarantee of the harmful act is based on the damage or the rule of fining the spoils/profits. And if it was by causing, vanity and misuse of the public right, for example, the guarantee is based on infringement or intentionality.
