Areas of Law
Areas of Law Description
Law Offices of Joseph I. Lipsky, PA serves clients in the following areas of practice:
- Car Accidents
Being involved in a car, truck, tractor-trailer or other motor vehicle accident or collision, is one of the most traumatic and unfortunate situations in which you may find yourself. Whether you are the victim of a rear-end collision, an inter sectional, or T-bone accident, a rollover, or the victim of a hit-and-run or the victim of a drunk driver, car accidents are serious matters.
- Damages (Car Accident)
When someone suffers personal injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence in any type of accident, including car accidents, trip and falls, or premises liability cases, Florida Law allows them to claim various items of damages. Damages are broken down into two categories, economic and non-economic.
- Vehicle Defects
Vehicle defects are a contributing factor in thousands of car accidents every year. Depending on the affected part, vehicle defects can directly cause or exacerbate serious personal injuries. When you or a loved one is injured in a car accident, all responsible parties must be held accountable.
- Rear End Car Accident
The most frequent type of car accident, occurring more than 2 million times yearly, is known as a rear end collision. These crashes occur when one car strikes the vehicle in front of it. The typical rear end accident occurs when the following vehicle is not paying close enough attention to the vehicle it is following or approaching, in the case of a stopped vehicle.
- Drunk Driving Accidents
For over two decades, the Law Offices of Joseph I. Lipsky have been helping victims of drunk driving accidents get the compensation they deserve. In the state of Florida, victims of drunken driving accidents are entitled to both economic and non-economic damages, but without an attorney on your side it is unlikely you will see even a portion of what you are owed.

Lipsky, P.A. have aggressively helped seriously injured victims and their family members pick up the pieces of their lives after car, motorcycle and truck accidents caused by the careless actions of distracted drivers.

- Pedestrian Traffic Accident
We at the Law Offices of Joseph I. Lipsky, P.A. have over 20 years of experience helping pedestrians and their families pick up the pieces of their lives after suffering serious injuries and loss from being struck by a motor vehicle. Our goal is to get our clients maximum financial compensation for pain and suffering caused by their injuries, payment of out-of-pocket medical bills and lost wages.
- Construction Accidents
The recent building boom across Florida has brought much needed jobs to communities in Broward County. Unfortunately, it has also brought a surge in construction accidents, many of which result in serious or fatal personal injuries. When you are injured on a construction site, it can be difficult to know where to turn for help.
- Medical Malpractice
Victims of medical malpractice in Florida need to be mindful of the numerous restrictions placed upon them by various laws. Those include a restrictive statute of limitations, which provides the case must begin within two years of when the malpractice occurred, or should have been discovered by the victim.
- Personal Injury
Personal injury is a general term which refers to accidents in which people are injured through the careless actions individuals or businesses. Such accidents occur through negligence, which is the failure to use reasonable care, or by intent. These accidents and the damages they cause are referred to as “torts,” or civil wrongs.
- Premises Liability
Electric automatic doors are all around us. We hardly notice these doors when we enter buildings and businesses; that is, until something goes wrong. It doesn't happen often, but electric sliding and swinging automatic doors occasionally do not work as they should, they close prematurely close and strike someone causing significant permanent injuries.
- Product Liability
You have a right as a consumer to expect any product you buy to operate as intended and not result in serious personal injury. Sadly, many people are injured by defective or dangerous products every year, resulting in medical expenses, lost wages, and untold amounts of personal pain and suffering.
- Slip and Fall
Business owners have an obligation to keep their properties safe from unsafe conditions. Sometimes the business owners do not live up to their obligations by failing to clean up liquids or spills that they know of, or should be aware of. And as a result of this failure, someone slips and falls at that business or property.
- Wrongful Death
The loss of a loved one in an accident is one of the most devastating things a family can face. During this time, you are entitled to grieve and should be allowed space to deal with your loss in whatever way you see fit. However, it is important to remember that a loved one’s death may result in more than emotional losses, and you need a compassionate wrongful death attorney on your side who can handle the practical considerations while you take time to heal.
- Motorcycle Accident
Unfortunately, due to the inattentiveness of car and truck drivers, motorcycle operators face a higher risk of being involved in an accident while traveling upon the roadways of the State of Florida. Annually there are more than seventy thousand motorcycle crashes in the United States.
- Bicycle Accidents
We at the Law Offices of Joseph I. Lipsky, P.A. have over 20 years of experience in representing seriously injured victims of bicycle accidents. Unfortunately, we also have experience in representing the surviving family members of bicyclists killed due to the reckless or negligent actions of a car or truck driver.
- Boating Accidents
One of the benefits of living in Florida, is our unlimited access to the ocean, bays and rivers around our state. Unfortunately, due to the significant number of vessels on those water ways, too many Floridians suffer serious and permanent personal injuries and families must endure the wrongful deaths of their loved ones due to the negligence of the operators of those vessels.
- Animal & Dog Bite
Dog owners may avoid liability if they posted a prominently displayed sign on their property stating the specific words of "Warning Bad Dog." Dog owners may also be relieved of responsibility, if the person who is bitten provoked the dog. Although this will generally be addressed by a jury, under the theory of comparative negligence.
- Brain Injury
Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) which are due to a blow or jolt to the head, received during a fall, a car accident or other accident, may cause brain disruption. Unfortunately, nearly one hundred thousand people are left completely disabled from brain injuries each year.
- Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries are among the most catastrophic personal injuries you can sustain. In many instances, damage to the spinal cord is permanent, resulting in a lifetime of medical and rehabilitation expenses, and major changes in your work, social, and family life.
- Burn Injury
Due to the severity of such burns, victims require expert medical and psychological care in dealing with not only the permanent physical, but also the equally important, mental suffering caused by burn injuries. We recognize and appreciate the needs of burn victims by aggressively pursuing the medical help they need, whether it is with a plastic surgeon or a burn specialist.
