Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries and deaths are life shattering situations that result in emotional, physical and financial hardships for friends and family members. We understand that individuals and their loved ones need immediate financial assistance for medical bills, collection efforts, loss of income, and probate issues. The Law Offices of Brett L. Schlacter, P.A. understands that prompt and individualized attention is needed in each individual case with attention to every detail. When a traditional negligence cause of action or intentional tort results in death, the Florida Wrongful Death Statute applies. The Wrongful Death Statute allows survivors of an individual, who has passed away due to the negligent acts or intentional acts of third parties, to file a lawsuit seeking a monetary award. Pursuant to Florida Statute section 95.11, in most circumstances, an action for wrongful death must be made within two (2) years of the death. If you do not bring a claim within two (2) years it will be extremely difficult to bring a wrongful death action. It is very important to retain a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. The Law Offices of Brett L. Schlacter, P.A. is equipped to handle any type of catastrophic injury and wrongful death case. Contact us for a free consultation. We are here to help.
