Civil Torts

Unlike criminal law, which deals with offenses against the state, civil torts are wrongful acts that cause harm or injury to another person and for which the law provides a legal remedy in the form of damages. 

The person who commits the tort can be held liable for the harm caused, typically through monetary compensation to the injured party.

Torts can be intentional (such as assault, battery, defamation, or trespass) or unintentional (most commonly, negligence). Negligence occurs when someone fails to exercise the level of care that a reasonable person would in a similar situation, leading to injury or harm to another person.

Tort law serves two primary purposes: to compensate victims for their losses resulting from the harm caused and to deter others from committing harmful acts. Torts are civil wrongs, separate from criminal or contract laws, and are handled in civil court proceedings.

Civil Litigation Cases in Miami

Civil litigation is the legal process for addressing disputes between individuals or organizations that typically seek monetary damages for alleged wrongdoing or “specific performance” rather than criminal sanctions. 

"Specific performance" is a legal remedy used in civil law when monetary damages are inadequate or inappropriate as compensation, such as for a breach of contract.

This remedy is often used in cases involving unique items or properties. For example, real estate is considered unique because no two properties are alike. If a seller breaches a contract to sell a property, the buyer may not be made whole by simply receiving money damages. Instead, the court can order the seller to proceed with the sale as initially agreed in the contract. This is an example of specific performance.

Civil disputes can often involve civil wrongdoing, known as “torts.” 

Our firm represents both those initiating a dispute claim, called plaintiffs and those accused of such claims, called the defendants. 

Civil litigation can involve a wide range of issues and parties, such as: 

  • Individuals, neighbors, families, and between individuals and businesses, such as consumer disputes with retailers or service providers.
  • Businesses with other businesses, such as in breach of contract, intellectual property infringements, or unfair competition. Disputes can also occur within the company, such as shareholder or partnership disputes.
  • Landlords and tenants can have conflicts over rent, property damage, lease agreements, or eviction proceedings.
  • Employers and employees can have disputes over wrongful termination, discrimination, wage disputes, or workplace safety issues.
  • Service providers and clients. Disputes can arise over the quality of services provided, payment issues, or breach of contract.
  • Government entities and citizens or businesses. Disputes can occur over regulatory compliance, taxes, zoning issues, building permits, or government contracts.
