By reason of the adequate damages recoverable in contract by the insured, and because of safeguards of ethics and efficient methods of title examinations, underwriting practices, and sophisticated systems of document storage and retrieval, it would appear that tort liability will not become prevalent in the title industry. Since law is disposed to follow the needs of society, rather than to anticipate them, it seems logical that actions in tort liability will not be needed.
