Port Charlotte Personal Injury Lawyers

Sunset over Port Charlotte HarborThere are many little towns and communities that dot the American landscape and make visitors think dreamily to themselves, “When I retire, I’m going to move here.” But perhaps no location in Florida can boast as much as Port Charlotte in that it is one of the best towns to do just that. With a population of just over 55,000 residents, Port Charlotte has been repeatedly named as one of the best cities to retire to including a CNNMoney poll that ranked it at #1 in the country for retirees and U.S. News and World Report putting it on the top ten list of “Best Places to Retire in 2015” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_Charlotte,_Florida). The city has an average age of approximately 52, which puts the residents at about a decade older than the average Floridian. In addition, the average condo in Port Charlotte costs almost $50,000 less than similar condos in Florida (http://www.city-data.com/city/Port-Charlotte-Florida.html#b).

One of the problems when you have such a large retiree population comes in the form of unsafe drivers. Many of these retirees are driving well into their golden years. Unfortunately, their vision and reaction time has been diminished by age. This is one of the reasons why South Florida has one of the highest rates of car crashes in the United States. These wrecks can be caused by everything from someone distractedly not paying attention to the road as they try to find an address to someone running a red light or stop sign. If someone has hit you because of this, or because they drifted into the wrong lane, or for any of a hundred possible causes of a negligent driving accident, then you can get restitution for your damages. This restitution can include both physical damages to your vehicle, medical bills, and even lost wages and lost wage potential. However, Florida has very stringent statute of limitation and liability laws that require a skilled attorney to handle your case. That is why the law firm of Wolf & Pravato are here to help you with years of experience in handling these type of cases.

Another area of concern for many senior citizens and retirees is the quality of the health care that they receive. Although South Florida has some of the best health care professionals in the country, there are always a few bad apples in the bunch. If you have been injured as a result of a botched surgery or medical procedure, then you know how debilitating such an injury can be and how it can impact not just you but your immediate family. And it doesn’t have to be any specific thing that a doctor does that can constitute malpractice; even a failure to act or provide a proper diagnosis can have a permanent effect on your life and livelihood. Wolf & Pravato have handled many such cases against hospitals, doctors, and other healthcare workers who have negligently injured patients.

In addition to these types of cases, the lawyers of Wolf & Pravato can handle a wide variety of negligence cases including those that involve slip and fall cases, premises liability such as those brought against landlords, and defective product claims. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of another’s negligence, it is imperative that you quickly contact a skilled attorney to handle your case. Wolf & Pravato will offer a free consultation and review the details of your case so that you can make an informed decision about your legal options.
