Catastrophic Injury Florida

Often times, when an individual suffers from catastrophic injuries, huge medical expenses will be incurred. The injured individual ability to earn a living may be severly diminished. Most likely, the injured individual will continue to expend large amounts of money in the future for medical care and treatment.

The burden is rarely only upon the injured. The family now must care for their loved one in ways that they never contemplated. The family of the injured individual may need to employ full time, around the clock assisted care. The injured person may need to reside in an assisted care facility.

When an individual is injured due to another’s negligent or otherwise improper conduct, that person may be entitled to receive compensation for past and future medical expenses, loss of physical capacity, pain, suffering, mental anguish, lost wages, and loss of future earning capacity, among others.

The injured individuals family may have lack of consortium claims. These claims involve lack of comfort and society which were once provided by the injured family member.

Punitive damages may also be available to punish defendants in those cases involving particularly egregious conduct, which demonstrates a reckless or wanton disregard for the safety of the public and / or the individual.

The attorney’s at Tracy Sharpe P.A have extensive, successful, experience with cases involving serious and catastrophic injuries.
