Florida Personal Injury Law
There is a widespread misunderstanding about personal injury cases and personal injury lawyers. The corporate media has utilized scare tactics to prevent individuals from pursuing their legal options when they have been injured . There has been a degree of demonization that has been inflicted upon those who step forward to say that they have been victimized when the truth is that every individual has a right to seek justice for wrongs that have been committed against them. A Miami personal injury lawyer seeks to address these wrongs and help the injured party or parties.
What is Considered “Personal Injury”?
Personal injury cases fall under what is called tort law. They are considered civil cases (as opposed to criminal) and have been legally defined as an injury caused by the unintentional failure of another human being to use what constitutes as “reasonable care” in their duties of ownership. Medical Malpractice, Slip and Fall, Catastrophic Injury, Product Liability, Work Injuries and Car Accidents are all under the aegis of what is a Florida Personal Injury Law case. Regardless of whether the actions of the negligent party were of reckless intent or just careless disregard you have an absolute right to seek justice and financial compensation for your injuries.

Your Right to Be Heard
Being given the wrong medication, being hit by a car—these are the more obvious examples of Florida personal injury law cases that most people associate with tort law. All too often individuals do not realize that if they have been injured on the property of another individual due to their lack of maintenance that he or she has a legal right to ask for compensation. Part of being a property or business owner is maintenance and upkeep, after all. If you have been a victim of shoddy property maintenance or lack of appropriate cautionary warning signs you are just as entitled to legal aid as the individual who suffered from a medical malpractice injury.
