Criminal Defense

Whether it’s a first time or repeat offense, being arrested for a criminal charge is damaging and has lasting negative consequences. Moving on with your life and finding employment can be difficult because of the psychological effects, the harm to your reputation in society and the permanent strike on your record.

Criminal charges vary and can include:

  • Traffic offenses
  • DUI / drunk driving
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug possession
  • Shoplifting
  • Vandalism
  • Expungement
  • Battery

The experienced attorneys at Bogani & Robes can assist you if you or a loved one was charged with a felony, misdemeanor, DUI or criminal offense.

Insurance Disputes

Insurance is there to help in times of need. Unfortunately, insurance policies are often confusing and ambiguous, favoring insurance companies over consumers and businesses. Even worse, some insurance companies fail to abide by the terms and conditions stated in your policy and willfully refuse to pay a legitimate claim for damages. This is called bad faith.

Examples of bad faith include:

  • Delay or denial of a claim without reason
  • An unreasonably low offer to compensate justified damages
  • Failure to promptly investigate or perform due diligence
  • Failure to act within a reasonable time
  • Delay in payment while waiting on a settlement with a third party insurer

Defective Products

Often, when a product fails to stand up to manufacturer claims, it’s disappointing. Unfortunately, defective products—whether the result of poor design, faulty components or misleading instruction—can lead to injuries. In that case, the manufacturer, designer or seller may be liable for the injuries caused by the product, and you may be eligible for compensation.

Premises Liability

Premises liability refers to accidents that happen when someone is injured on another person’s property. The injury could occur because of negligent maintenance, unsafe or dangerous conditions on the property, hazards on the property, or lack of security on the property.

There are many types of premises liability accidents and injuries, but the most common are slips, trips or falls as the result of:

  • Water / wet floors
  • Debris or other obstacles on the ground or floor
  • Slippery substances
  • Abrupt changes in flooring
  • Poor lighting
  • Hidden hazards like a gap or hole in the ground that is hard to see

Property owners (owners of residential and commercial buildings, shopping centers, parking facilities, hotels, cruise ships, casinos, amusement parks, airports, healthcare facilities, restaurants and night clubs, universities and schools, etc.) are expected to maintain their property in a manner that does not cause injury to those who visit the property. It is the responsibility of the property’s owner and management to ensure that safe conditions exist at all times. Cases often arise when property owners knew or should have known of the dangerous conditions present on their properties and did not adequately protect the victim from harm.

Bogani and Robes handles these types of cases, which involve:

  • Negligent Security
  • Slip and Falls
  • Trip and Falls
  • Unsafe Premises

Product Liability

Manufacturers are responsible for providing safe products or at least giving warnings about potential hazards.

Defective products can lead to catastrophic, life altering injuries including brain injury, back injury, neck injury, spinal cord trauma, amputation, quadriplegia, paraplegia, or a wrongful death in the family.

These injuries can result from:

  • Consumer Products: Includes everything from toys and cribs to blinds and lawnmowers.
  • Defective Automobiles: Trucks, motorcycles, SUVs and cars with seatbelt failure, susceptibility to rollover, defective tires and more.
  • Defective Medical Products: Surgical tools, x-ray machines, etc.
  • Dangerous Drugs: The COX-2 inhibitors VIOXX, Celebrex and Bextra, etc.

Defective products litigation is a complex, specialized area of law that often involves multiple defendants, including the manufacturer of the product, the distributors and retailers that sold the product and the service centers responsible for the maintenance or repair of the product.

Litigation

Our attorneys have extensive experience litigating in Florida courts and in arbitrations. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide range of legal disputes.

Litigation is any lawsuit or resort to the courts to determine a legal question or matter. Lawyers arguing the disputed issues are litigators, and the clients they represent are litigants. Lawyers are the preferred option for those who choose not to represent themselves in court.

Litigation involves many complex legal issues, which require not only a knowledge of the law that governs the dispute but also the governing procedures that must be followed in order to properly litigate a claim. The rules concern those who may file a claim, where it must be filed, when it must be filed, and how to file it.

Pharmaceutical Injuries

The pharmaceutical industry is extremely competitive and very profitable. Drug manufacturing companies aggressively market pharmaceuticals and in some cases, ignore or minimize possible health risks. Often, by the time the public is made aware of these risks or the drugs are recalled, many people may already have experienced their side effects. Side effects vary depending on the drugs, but may include heart attack or stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, diabetes, suicide, or kidney or liver damage or failure, or other serious issues.
