Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Lawyer
Our personal injury attorneys handle accident cases throughout Ft. Lauderdale and all of South Florida every single day. The lawyers from Wolf & Pravato have the experience, determination, and financial resources to go up against even the biggest insurance companies and corporations out there.
These victories are for real people who have been accidentally injured or have lost a loved one to wrongful death- real people just like you. Justice, unfortunately, is not automatic; it takes hard work, research, and complicated legal procedures to determine every single liable party and to get you the compensation you deserve. During such a stressful time in your life, you shouldn’t have to worry about these burdens, too.
Wolf & Pravato have earned board certification in litigation, including wrongful death litigation, and have been designated Lifelong Members of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. This impressive title means that a trial lawyer has successfully obtained multi-million dollar verdicts in a court of law. Every lawyer here has ample experience, and that translates into benefits for you.
Not every personal injury case needs an attorney to reach a settlement. However, if you don’t have one, you run the very serious risk of getting far less compensation you deserve. The insurance company will want to settle for the absolute minimum amount possible, and without a personal injury lawyer, it can be difficult to know what to do. A competent lawyer can be like your navigator, steering you through these complicated legal storms and guiding you to a result even better than what you may have expected.
Maximizing Your Fair Compensation
No matter where you were injured in Fort Lauderdale, Wolf & Pravato are capable of assessing your situation exactly to find out what you’re legally entitled to. Usually there’s a lot more to this than one would expect, and your insurance company will often try to minimize these. But a settlement should address compensation for every type of damage, including:
- Emotional damages
- Pain and suffering- physical and mental
- Long-term or permanent disability
- Past and present lost wages
- Past, present, and future medical bills
- Estimated future costs
Your opposing party will often push for a fast settlement, and hope that they can avoid getting into many of these issues which may raise the full amount to which you’re entitled. Some lawyers want to avoid trial at all costs, and because of this, they’ll accept lesser settlements to get out of doing so.
