Force Law and Legal Definition
Force means power, violence, or pressure directed against a person or thing. Force is a compulsion by physical means or by legal requirement. For example, if A used a gun to force B to use that person’s ATM card or under the malpractice policy clause, the insurance company was forced to defend the doctor.
Force is synonym to unlawful violence and it can be actual or implied. The entry into the ground of another without his consent and the case of false imprisonment are examples for implied force.
