As part of handling your case, an experienced injury attorney will thoroughly review your case to identify the parties liable for your injuries. As part of this process, we will investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident, review any police reports, interview witnesses, and review any other evidence or pertinent facts.
Never sign an acceptance agreement for a settlement before discussing it with an experienced personal injury lawyer. When you accept an agreement, it often means that you’ve waived your right to file additional claims for future compensation. If this isn’t addressed in the settlement, you might find yourself with unexpected future losses and no way to get help. In South Florida, Wolf & Pravato can help you avoid this fate by negotiating a fair settlement right from the start.
Our Fort Myers Attorneys Protect You From Negligence
The loss of a loved one is difficult enough without having to worry about financial problems. You are likely to have increasing hospital expenses, memorial costs, and damages when a head of household is killed due to the carelessness of another party. Psychological reduction are also involved in the damages or injuries you have experienced – and you are entitled to settlement for these failures.
Our PI attorneys are some of the best in the state, earning board certification in litigation and being designated Lifelong Members of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum- an honor for trial lawyers, meaning they’ve obtained verdicts on that high of a scale. Our lawyers are a step above the rest for other reasons, too.
We have years of experience winning personal injury cases. Every attorney at Wolf & Pravato works exclusively as a plaintiff’s attorney. They have complex, high-stakes accident cases under their belts, including litigation for wrongful deaths.
Extensive trial experience on our part means that our lawyers are not afraid to go to court, if that’s what’s necessary to win you the verdict you deserve. Many lawyers will try to settle to avoid the courtroom, because they lack the experience needed to win. Just facing one of our lawyers, who they know will be ready to go to trial if that’s what it takes, can be enough to tip their hand in negotiations and get you a settlement larger than they originally offered.
Our contingent fee payment structure means you won’t pay any legal fees unless we win your case. Our attorneys will explain this to you in greater detail at the beginning of your representation.
Fort Myers Car Accident and Traffic-Related Fatalities
Statistics show an increase in car accident fatalities and other traffic-related injuries in recent years. “It’s not only during the tourist season, it’s off season as well, where we experience fatalities, pedestrians, bicycles, people getting hit by cars,” Fort Myers Beach Mayor Larry Kiker told WINK news.
For example, on March 9, 2012, 67-year old Mary Ann Hechimovich was hit and killed by an SUV while crossing one of Fort Myers Beach’s busiest roads. Just one day later, a Fort Myers resident died from injuries sustained when his bicycle impacted an oncoming car while he was crossing Cleveland Avenue. Our attorneys hear of such tragedies far too often.
If you have been injured in a traffic-related accident one of our lawyers can help guide you through the legal process. Let us put our decades of experience and track record of success to work for you to obtain the compensation you deserve. Contact our Ft. Myers personal injury lawyers toll-free at 1-954-633-8270 for an evaluation of your case.
If you were injured in Fort Myers, or any South Florida location, you need a lawyer who you can trust. Insurance companies are unfortunately not in the business of being generous to victims- they will try to offer you the lowest possible settlement they can, because they don’t want to lose money of their own. Your accidental injury lawyer at Wolf & Pravato, as well as our investigative support staff, can help you get more compensation than what was originally offered.
A settlement should take into account a number of things that insurance companies may ignore:
- lost wages, both past and present
- current medical bills
- estimated future medical expenses
- long-term or permanent disability
- loss of companionship / emotional support
- emotional damages (pain and suffering)
Insurance companies may push for fast settlements to avoid paying the full amount you deserve. Our injury lawyers, however, know that a proper accident case takes time. We may hire independent researchers, investigators, and other appropriate experts to find every piece of documentation that might help your case.
We’re not afraid to dig in deep, because one of the most important parts of preparation is finding exactly how much to blame every other party is, and how much they can be held accountable for in court.
