Fort Lauderdale Catastrophic Injury Attorneys Advocating for Families and Loved Ones When Injuries Completely Change a Life
Fighting for full justice if an accident in South Florida causes catastrophic injuries
It’s one thing to suffer an accident that results in bruises and cuts that heal in a few weeks. It’s another when an accident or negligence means that the life you had before the accident has been altered forever. Some circumstances, like an auto accident or an act of malpractice, can leave a person hospitalized for life, requiring around-the-clock medical care. Victims of catastrophic injuries may never walk again, may never be able to talk or communicate properly, or suffer constant pain. Permanent and serious injury victims often significantly lose their quality of life.
At Yeboah Law Group, P.A., our Fort Lauderdale catastrophic injury attorneys fight to get victims compensation for each part of their life that has been altered. We demand payment for every surgery, every doctor visit, all medical devices, all medical prescription, physical therapy, and psychiatric counseling. For more than 20 years, our South Florida attorneys have been trying cases before juries in state and federal courts. We only recommend settlement when all medical bills and all lost wages are covered, and the daily pain and emotional suffering is properly determined. Otherwise, we are ready to go to trial.
Categories of catastrophic injury
Any parent, spouse, child, or relative who gets the call that a loved one is in the emergency room or has been admitted to surgery shares the same worries: will the victim ever get better? Who will take care of him? How much is he/she hurting? They’re anxious at the escalating costs. Sometimes injuries to the brain or other internal body parts may not show right away — but when they do, coping and living with the injuries can be devastating.
Our Miami-Dade catastrophic injury attorneys work with doctors and trained specialists to get the right diagnosis and the right treatments. Our first priority is on the victim’s immediate health. We then work tirelessly to determine how the accident happened and who is responsible. Some of the kinds of catastrophic injury cases Yeboah Law Group handles are:
- First-, second-, and third-degree burn injuries. Burn accidents change a victim’s life in many ways. The pain can be unbearable. Reconstructive and grafting surgeries are usually required, and often more than one. Even when successful, the surgeries leave lasting and emotional scars
- Traumatic brain injuries (“TBI”). These wounds are often caused by a violent blow or shaking of the head. A severe TBI can cause the inability to speak, impairment of bodily functions, sexual complications, and other long-term problems.
- Spinal cord injuries. These injuries can cause partial or complete paralysis, leaving the victim a quadriplegic or a paraplegic. Victims usually suffer nerve damage and chronic pain even with injections and other medical treatments.
- Loss of limb.In the best of cases, a loss or amputation of a leg, foot, arm, hand, finger, or toe requires surgery and/or the permanent use of prosthetic devices. Sometimes the devices don’t work. Patients who lose a limb suffer a great deal of emotional pain along with the physical pain.
Our South Florida catastrophic injury lawyers detail each type of pain, each loss of bodily function, every moment of depression and hopelessness. We demand wrongdoers be held accountable for life-changing negligence or wrongful conduct.

Through thorough preparation, a complete understanding of the law, and our first-rate ability to persuade and advocate, our legal team is more than ready to meet the challenge of presenting the strongest case possible.
