Property Negligence

Property Negligence in Florida:

For many years, Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano has been at the forefront of premises liability cases, handling numerous third party attacks on innocent victims due to negligent security. Jack J. Fine represented several of the student murder victims and thereafter personally sued to prevent the murderer from publishing his memoirs from Florida State prison. Mr. Fine has also lectured in this area. Additional premises liability cases have been brought regarding falls in commercial and residential situations. Many of the premises liability cases involve large insurance policies and litigation is often needed to get the best result.
