Catastrophic Injury Lawyer
Negligence in any form can cause serious injury in Florida. From product liability cases to car accident injury claims, Wolf & Pravato can help.
Catastrophic injuries come in many forms, as do their causes. When tragedy in Florida strikes, its cause is often indiscriminate, but one common thread is always present — the role of negligence. Whether someone else’s actions behind the wheel led to your crash and a resulting in a car accident injury claim, or a manufacturer’s defective product caused you harm, common with product liability cases, Wolf & Pravato have seen situations like yours before and can offer legal assistance in this difficult time.
Negligence May Lead to Injuries
We’ve worked with clients on a vast range of cases, from Florida car accident injury claims to product liability cases. Unfortunately, these types don’t even begin to scratch the surface when it comes to Florida negligence cases. At Wolf & Pravato, our West Palm Beach catastrophic personal injury lawyers have seen myriad forms of negligence.
Some of the ones that commonly lead to injury include:
- errors and omissions of doctors/healthcare providers;
- defective products;
- automobile and truck accidents;
- pedestrian accidents;
- construction accidents;
- premises liability;
- aviation disasters;
- nautical accidents;
- work-related accidents; and
- other negligent and intentional wrongdoing occurring in our daily lives.
Regardless of the cause, when you or a loved one has sustained serious harm, Wolf & Pravato can help. Given today’s healthcare marketplace, the future costs facing anyone sustaining a catastrophic personal injury are staggering.
Experienced Counsel Counts
In a catastrophic personal injury case, inappropriate presentation of the huge future care costs will absolutely overwhelm and alienate a jury. Combine an inappropriate presentation of damages with a difficult liability scenario, and a verdict in favor of the defense, or at best, a compromised verdict, can be predicted.
Proper presentation of past and future care expenses, as well as wage and other economic losses in catastrophic personal injury cases often requires the assistance of:
- a forensic economist (after the liability hurdles have been overcome, one of the most important expert witnesses in your camp will be the forensic economist);
- life care planners; and
- vocational rehabilitation specialists.
Attorneys must place these staggering numbers within an inflation framework, through appropriate expert testimony, in order to assist —a jury’s understanding of the client’s future medical costs.
We Consider Your Needs after an Injury
Wolf & Pravato approach each of its injured clients with the understanding of their unique needs. From the outset, a case manager, or life care planner, is retained and works closely with counsel, the victim and his or her family. The treatment team is brought together. All needs are reviewed. A carefully developed plan is established, bearing in mind all of the needs of the plaintiff, as well as his/her family.
The individual needs of each victim are an important aspect of every case — perhaps most important in the case of a catastrophically injured child. At Wolf & Pravato, we understand what’s at stake, and we can help.
