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 severely 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.
The injured individual’s 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.
