About the Law Offices of Dominic O. Fariello, PA
At the Law Offices of Dominic O. Fariello, PA in Tampa, attorney Dom Fariello and the attentive legal support staff provide clients with high-caliber representation, both in the courtroom and at the negotiation table. Serving clients in Hillsborough County and neighboring counties in Florida, the firm’s practice focuses on the following areas:
Personal Injury Law
A personal injury is any accident or injury that a person suffers due to another’s negligence or wrongdoing. While there are many law firms that represent injured people, few have the reputation for obtaining sizeable results as we do. For all personal injury claims, contact us for a free initial consultation.
Car accidents are some of the most dangerous situations in the United States. More than 2,000,000 injuries and 40,000 deaths per year result from car crashes, according to statistics compiled by the National Highway & Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
These tragedies happen in a multitude of situations, such as traffic accidents, medical malpractice, slip and falls, and faulty products. If you suspect that a loved one’s death is the result of another party’s negligence or reckless behavior, contact our law office today.
There are approximately 103,000 injuries and more than 5000 deaths due to motorcycle accidents per NHTSA’s findings. Injuries include: head injuries, neck and back pain, brain and spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and road rash. These are the firm's more serious cases simply because there is little to no protection while riding a motorcycle. Mr. Fariello's success is evident in his $18 million verdict in Campanioni vs. City of Tampa, featured in this St. Petersburg Times article.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
Brain injuries include anything from concussions to comas and result from numerous causes: falls, automobile accidents, intentional harm, etc. More than 1.5 million people fall victim to these devastating injuries each year, according to the Brain Injury Association of America.
Bodily injuries (BI)
Personal injuries can significantly handicap a person’s motor skills, capabilities, or appearance. Serious bodily injuries can require costly physical therapy for full or partial recovery. BI claims are made against the negligent person's insurance. These claims vary based on the type of injury and type of policy coverage.
The Center for Disease Control’s latest data shows that each year 4.7 million dog attacks cause injury. In Florida, dog owners can be held liable for each dog bite their pet inflicts. Contact us for effective dog bite representation.
PIP (personal injury protection) representation
While many automobile insurance policies have PIP sections, recouping the allotted coverage for crash-caused medical bills can prove difficult. Dom Fariello is experienced in attaining the proper compensation for his clients and their medical providers.
These lawsuits involve the property on which a personal injury occurred. If the property owner or landlord failed to provide a safe, hazard-free environment, the property owner may be liable for resulting injuries.
Defective products can have detrimental effects on a consumer’s health. Injuries resulting from unsafe designs and faulty manufacturing fall under products liability, including items made of substandard materials or malfunctioning parts. Injuries sustained because of defective products may be costly. Dom Fariello can help you sue the manufacturer, designer, and/or seller of such products to recover losses suffered as a result of your injuries.
Slip and fall/Trip and fall
Slip, trip, and fall accidents claim victims everywhere. Resulting injuries include soft tissue damage, broken bones, strained joints, and death. If you have fallen because another party neglected to provide a safe public environment, you may be entitled to restitution for your injuries.
NHTSA reports that trucking accidents incur approximately 890,000 injuries and claim roughly 13,500 lives for large and small trucks in the US. It is especially important to contact an attorney as soon as possible if you are involved in an accident with a truck. Trucking company representatives and insurance agents often show up on the scene of an accident quickly. Beyond exchanging required information, do not talk to these representatives. Instead, call Dom Fariello to look out for your best interests.
Uninsured motorist claims (UM)
Car accidents can be nightmares. Injuries caused by an uninsured motorist amplify the nightmare. At the Law Offices of Dominic O. Fariello, we investigate sources of insurance coverage to find you the compensation you deserve. UM coverage is a claim based on your (the client's) own auto policy to protect you from an uninsured or underinsured driver.
Criminal Defense Law
When you are investigated or arrested for a criminal offense, contact a lawyer immediately. With experienced legal counsel on your side, you increase the protection of your civil rights. Contacting an attorney early can maximize the quality of your legal defense. Punishments for criminal charges can include counseling, community service, rehabilitation, restitution, fines, probation, jail time, and the death penalty. Remember, your Fifth Amendment right is to remain silent.
Assault and battery
Assault is the intention or threat to cause harm to another person by speech or action. With aggravated assaults—attacks with deadly weapons or during other felony crimes—down 3.4% in 2008, they still total nearly 40,000 of Florida’s crimes.
Battery occurs when a person intends to cause and physically causes harm by touching or striking a person against her/his will.
Florida crime statistics show more than 52,000 domestic crimes in the first half of 2008, with the majority of these crimes perpetrated by spouses and cohabitants. If you are accused of domestic assault, contact the Law Offices of Dominic O. Fariello today for legal defense.
