unerlaubte Handlung, Delikt (zivilr.)


Explanation:
"tort" is "unerlaubte Handlung" or "Delikt".
Liability in tort thus can be translated either as "Haftung aus unerlaubter Handlung" or "deliktische Haftung" or "Deliktshaftung", with the first option probably being the best in the context of the paragraph you have quoted.
