Mr. Bello handles an effective and successful litigation practice. He regularly appears in court on behalf of companies, and individuals.

Joel A. Bello handles many personal injury cases. Personal injury involves injury to an individual. This area of the law allows an injured person to sue in a private action called a civil action, known in the legal community as a tort action. A “tort” is a wrong against a person. Any accident or injury against a person can constitute a tort – whether it be in a car accident, slip and fall accident or the negligence of a professional.
Consulting an experienced South Florida personal injury attorney like those of Bello & Martinez, PLLC, can provide information on whether to pursue an action in court. If a loved one is killed in an accident or through negligence, the surviving family members can pursue wrongful death litigation, which is similar but separate from personal injury litigation.
Different degrees of fault exist and there are several elements necessary to prove in court in order to be successful against the wrongdoer or negligent party in a tort action. Additionally, more than one person or party may be at fault, and responsibility may be apportioned among all of the wrongdoers. In some instances, the victim may even be partly at fault for the tragedy but that does not necessarily mean the victim does not have a right to bring a lawsuit. A personal injury lawyer can help the potential plaintiff determine how to discover and prove fault in the suit.
If the personal injury lawyers working on the case are successful, the person who is injured can recover money damages. These damages can be for a number of reasons: medical bills, lost income, future medical bills and care, and other economic damages that are incurred. In addition, the personal injury law firm may be able to recover what is termed non-economic damages. These are damages that may be difficult to quantify, but nevertheless, are very real: pain and suffering, disfigurement and loss of consortium. Keep in mind there is a deadline in filing cases known as a statute of limitations. These statutes vary and it takes an experienced personal injury law firm to examine the facts and the law to determine the limitations period that applies in each case.
