Personal injury is an area of law where a claim or lawsuit is brought on behalf of someone who sustains an injury to the body or mind. A personal injury lawsuit is type of civil matter called a tort. This means that there is no jail time at stake, but rather the lawsuit is about money damages. An injury can happen many different ways. Most commonly a personal injury claim occurs when someone is hurt because of someone else’s negligence or intentional acts or omissions.


Slip and fall’s and trip and fall’s on someone else’s property that result in serious injury are called premises liability cases.

The key issue that a Miami slip and fall lawyer is looking to prove is that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition.
