Defective and Dangerous Products:
There are literally millions of products available to consumers ranging from lipstick to processed foods to cigarettes.

When on the property of another, the owner of the property must undertake reasonable efforts to protect you against known dangers. Typically, it is the burden of the injured party to prove the property owner had actual or constructive notice of the dangerous condition. If you have sustained injures in an incident on liable premises, the attorneys at Lisa S. Levine, P.A. can evaluate your claim and assist in getting you to the appropriate medical attention.
Premises Liability can cover a wide variety of scenarios, including:

Cruise Ship Accidents
Most people do not know that a cruise ship ticket is a contract that often mandates where you must bring a lawsuit against the cruise line for personal injuries. Often, the required location of the lawsuit is unrelated to cruise line's ports of call, or your place of residence. More importantly, the contract usually requires that you provide notice of your injuries to the cruise line shortly after the incident causing your injuries, or your claim may be forever barred. The attorneys at Lisa S. Levine, P.A. can evaluate your claim, and make sure that your claim is timely filed in the appropriate legal jurisdiction and venue.
Nursing Home Abuse
In Florida and across the United States, there is a shortage of skilled nurses. Nursing homes and ALFs have been particularly affected by the nursing shortage because the best nurses seek higher paying positions in hospitals and physicians' offices. In Florida, nursing home abuse cases must be brought pursuant to § 400 of the Florida Statutes, and, if the case involves medical care, it is further required that the Claimant complies with § 766 of the Florida Statutes. Lisa S. Levine, P.A. handle all types of nursing home abuse cases, and our attorneys can advise you as to your rights under the law.
Personal injury claims can be quite complicated, especially when dealing with shortened claim periods and confusing filing requirements. While the majority of attorneys handling injury cases are qualified, mistakes can occur which may prejudice your otherwise viable claim. If you have been represented by an attorney who has committed negligence in the pursuit of your injury claim, the attorneys at Lisa S. Levine, P.A. can evaluate the nature of the error and, if appropriate, file a claim on your behalf.
