Following a motor vehicle accident in Miami, it is common for accident victims to suffer injuries to their face, arms, and body. The lawyers at the Perazzo Law Firm know that these car accident injuries most often include cuts, burns, bruises, breaks, and sore muscles, and that they usually feel worse for the first 24–48 hours. Motor vehicle accident victims may experience the most stiffness and soreness during the first few hours and they can also feel worse when he/ she wakes up the first morning after the crash. However, it is important to remember that their pain and suffering will most likely begin to disappear as the days pass. How quickly each motor vehicle accident victim improves often depends on the severity of the car crash and the number of injuries sustained in the accident, as well as the location, the nature of these injuries, and whether an airbag deployed upon impact.

Slip and fall law falls under the category of Personal Injury Law governed by the standards of negligence and premises liability.

Slip and fall accidents in Miami can occur on almost any walking surface from a sidewalk to the aisle of your favorite supermarket. One of the more difficult aspects of slip and fall cases is proving how the business owner or operator of the location where the injury occurred was negligent and responsible for injuries to the slip & fall accident victim.

As a victim of a slip and fall, you are allowed to gather evidence through discovery and depositions. Discovery is an evidence gathering process during litigation, allowing the plaintiff to a lawsuit what the defendant knew of the dangerous condition. Through discovery, you may be able to gather the surveillance footage, documentation evidencing prior slip and falls. Moreover, discovery allows for the plaintiff in a personal injury lawsuit to depose the individual defendant or a representative of a defendant. Frequently the insurance company will defend the owner or the operator of the premises where the injury occurred. Typically, the defendant will place blame or a portion of the blame on the victim of the slip and fall. The defendant may suggest the victim was careless in not paying attention to the surrounding or taking a known risk resulting in an injury where one could have been avoided.
