    Jan 02, 2011
    Outcome:
    $1,500,000 policy limits
    Description:
    Mr. Rivera was 33 years old and was riding his motorcycle Eastbound on Atlantic Avenue in Margate, Florida. He was in the left hand lane, traveling just under the speed limit at 40 MPH. An elderly man that was stopped in a left turn lane was facing Westbound. As Mr. Rivera approached, the elderly man made a left turn directly in front of Mr. Rivera. Mr. Rivera attempted to avoid the accident by quickly moving his motorcycle to the right; however the car made an extremely wide turn. Mr. Rivera eventually was pinned between the motorcycle and the car, causing a near amputation of his left arm. The trial lawyers at Wolf & Pravato, P.A., who are Ft. Lauderdale motorcycle accident attorneys, filed a lawsuit in Broward County, Florida. Prior to trial, the case was settled for the policy limits of $1,500,000.00.

    Practice Area:
    Trucking Accident
    Date:
    Jan 26, 2010
    Outcome:
    $3.85 Million
    Description:
    A young man in his 20's was sitting on a bus bench waiting for the bus to take him to work. A tractor-trailer carrying a large load of steel building beams made a turn in front of the bus bench and the entire load of steel slid off the truck crushing the young man’s leg and trapping him. After several hours, the rescue team was able to free the trapped man and his long road of surgeries and rehabilitation began. Wolf & Pravato quickly dispatched our top engineering team to perform a comprehensive evaluation of the 18-wheeler. Our engineers discovered that the enormous load had been improperly secured. Prior to entering the courtroom, the case was settled for $3.85 million dollars.
  • MEDICAL MALPRACTICE & PREMISES LIABILITY

    Practice Area:
    Medical Malpractice
    Date:
    Jul 14, 2010
    Outcome:
    Multi-Million Dollar Confiedential Settlement
    Description:
    On Thanksgiving, an 11-year-old girl was playing with friends across the street from her house at an apartment complex. As the group of kids were playing, a five foot high wall between a parking lot and the apartment building fell on top of our 11-year-old client’s leg. She was rushed to the hospital. The doctors failed to properly diagnose our client’s injuries. As a result, the 11-year-old girl was forced to have her leg amputated below the knee. What should have been just a short time in a cast, ended in a tragedy. Our construction engineering team found that the apartment building owner had negligently reconstructed the wall several years earlier following a hurricane. Our medical experts found that medical malpractice clearly caused the resulting amputation of the child’s leg. The multi-million dollar settlement is confidential.
  • Auto Accident/Pedestrian

    Practice Area:
    Personal Injury
    Date:
    Mar 22, 2011
    Outcome:
    Multi-Million Dollar Confidential Settlement
    Description:
    Our client, a 38-year-old mother, was forced to pull over on the side of I-75. As she was standing in the grass behind her vehicle, the driver of another car was not paying attention to the highway and he veered off the road and slammed into our client. Our client sustained severe injuries and was rushed by helicopter to Broward General’s trauma center. Emergency spinal surgery was performed at the trauma center. Her devastating injuries digressed and she eventually underwent a 6 level thoraco-lumbar spinal fusion T10-L3 (a 6 level low back fusion with rods and 10 screws). Our litigation team successfully demonstrated to the opposition the extensive value of our client’s life altering injuries and were able to obtain a multi-million dollar settlement at mediation; the amount is confidential.
