A commercial tort claim is a type of tort claim where the claimant is an organization or an individual and the claim comes in the course of the business or profession of the claimant and does not include damages arising out of personal injury to, or the death of, an individual. 

A statutory definition of commercial tort claim is provided in Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, which also provides that such claims are not accounts.
