Catastrophic injuries include but are not limited to brain injuries, burns, amputations, spinal cord injuries, blindness, nerve damage, and fractures. On Florida’s Treasure Coast, catastrophic injuries happen in all kinds of ways. People sustain catastrophic injuries in traffic collisions, workplace accidents, by using defective products, and sometimes simply by slipping or tripping and falling. The financial and physical toll of a catastrophic injury can be enormous. These injuries often require lifelong medical care.
If you are catastrophically injured because another person was negligent – in Stuart or anywhere else in the Treasure Coast region – you are entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, your lost income, and more. If you are permanently disabled and require lifelong care, you’ll need the maximum amount of compensation that’s available to you. An experienced Stuart catastrophic injury lawyer at the law firm of Kibbey Wagner, PLLC can help. With more than sixty combined years of legal experience, we’ve helped scores of injury victims recover the compensation that is rightfully theirs.
IF YOU FILE AN INJURY CLAIM, WHAT ARE YOU REQUIRED TO PROVE?
No sum of cash can genuinely compensate someone for a catastrophic injury, but every catastrophic injury victim will have to deal with substantial medical expenses, often for years into the future, as well as lost income and lost earning capacity. A top catastrophic injury lawyer at Kibbey Wagner, PLLC can review the details of your case, examine the relevant evidence, and fight aggressively on your behalf if you have sufficient grounds for legal action. In a Florida personal injury case, an injury victim and his or her attorney must show:
- The defendant owed a duty of care to the plaintiff.
- The defendant breached that duty of care by acting negligently.
- As a result, the plaintiff suffered quantifiable damages.
