You may deserve compensation after being injured on another party’s property in St. Petersburg. Lost income, pain and suffering, and medical costs are a few losses that you may be able to secure a settlement or court award for.
The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can guide your case at every step of the way. You worry about getting better; a St. Petersburg premises liability lawyer from our firm will take care of everything else as we pursue compensation on your behalf.
Awards We May Secure for Your Losses
Our firm determines fair compensation on a client-by-client basis. Once we meet with you and investigate your case, then we can provide a target for compensation. In a general sense, you may deserve compensation for:
- Medical costs
- Current and future lost income
- Permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of earning power
The extent and value of these losses may vary by case. In order to determine the precise cost of your losses, we can:
- Gather existing bills related to your injuries
- Speak with professionals to project your future medical costs
- Review your past earnings to determine how much compensation you have lost
- Estimate future lost income
We will take other necessary steps to determine what your losses are. The sum of those losses will be our target for settlement.
We Will Seek a Settlement But Remain Ready for Trial
The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine will pursue a settlement for you. Settlements can come through an insurance claim. They may also come before or after we file your lawsuit. Settlements are the most common outcome of civil lawsuits, the American Bar Association (ABA) explains.
There are several benefits to settling. A settlement provides a certain financial outcome. When we agree to a settlement, we also know how much compensation you are getting.
A trial does not provide this certain outcome and generally takes longer to complete than a settlement. However, trials are sometimes necessary. If the liable parties are not willing to settle, we will take your case to trial.
We Can Identify the At-Fault Parties
When we work together on your case, a St. Petersburg premises liability lawyer from our firm will identify the at-fault party and work to prove their liability for your injuries.
Property owners generally are the first party we consider for liability in premises liability cases. The person liable for your losses may be:
- A business owner
- The owner of an apartment complex
- Your landlord
- A homeowner
- The city of St. Petersburg
- Another type of property owner
Some cases may have unique circumstances. We may hold other parties liable instead of, or in addition to, a property owner. We will assign a lawyer to your case who is familiar with premises liability in St. Petersburg. They will fight for the financial outcome that you or your loved one may deserve.
Our Firm Does Not Get Paid Unless You Get Paid
Our clients pay us nothing unless we win. If we do not help you secure a settlement or judgment, then you pay us no attorney’s fees.
This contingency-fee arrangement provides several benefits. It:
- Ensures you face no out-of-pocket costs from our firm
- Ensures you do not have to pay upfront for a lawyer
- Gives us additional incentive to win your case
We go the extra mile for our clients. If we do not win, you do not pay. It is that simple.
Our Firm Can Handle Your Case From Start to Finish
Our responsive legal care starts from the moment that you hire us. It ends once your case reaches a resolution. In the interim, all you have to worry about is your recovery.
We deal with every legal or insurance-related matter involved in your case. Our firm will:
- Defend your rights from the moment you hire us until your case is complete
- Deal with insurance companies and attorneys
- Organize your medical records

The outcome that we seek will depend on your case type. No matter the specifics, our goal is to win compensation for your injury-related losses.
Property Owners Owe a Duty of Care
Premises in St. Petersburg must be reasonably safe. Property owners have a duty to ensure this is the case. If you or a loved one suffered injuries because of a dangerous property, someone may be responsible for your damages.
Property owners and other liable parties must take steps to eliminate hazards. These steps can include:
- Hiring a qualified property manager
- Having clear systems for identifying and removing hazards
- Ensuring a property is clearly lit
- Cleaning spills promptly
- Ensuring electrical and plumbing components are safe and not exposed
- Foreseeing and protecting visitors from any other hazards
While premises liability law seems straightforward, this is not always the case. Our firm will sort out complex legal matters and pursue the awards that you may deserve.
