Areas of Law Description

- Personal Injury

Many of them have been Board Certified by the Florida Bar as specialists in their fields. We are committed to vigorously pursuing fair compensation for your injuries: Medical bills; Current and future lost wages; Rehabilitation; Permanent disability; Psychological trauma; and, Property damage.
- Medical Malpractice
When you or family members are victims of harmful or substandard care by medical professionals, then you may have a malpractice case. The key is standard of care. It means that the medical care falls short of the generally accepted methods used by medical professionals in the area to treat patients in similar circumstances. Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys at Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Prather, Keen & Littky-Rubin in West Palm Beach are very familiar with Florida laws governing medical malpractice. Our objectives in bringing a medical malpractice suit are to hold medical practitioners accountable for their negligence and to get you compensated for the resulting injuries.
- Wrongful Death
Our attorneys understand the terrible emotional and financial impact that a wrongful death can have on a family. That is why all of our firm's legal work in wrongful death cases is done on a contingency basis. If your case is accepted, you pay no attorney fees or expenses unless the case is resolved in your favor. You may recover damages for intangible losses as well as for financial ones: Medical costs associated with the death; Funeral and burial or cremation costs; Loss of the deceased’s expected future earnings; Loss of deceased's income; Loss of companionship, protection, and care; Pain and suffering; Mental anguish; and, Punitive damages.
- Auto Accidents
Serious injuries from car accidents can affect your health now and their consequences can stay with you and your family far into the future. It is vital to seek medical attention immediately following an accident, even if you do not feel injured. Serious symptoms of soft tissue and other injuries may crop up days or weeks later. The longer the time between the accident date and the date you first go to the doctor, the more the insurance company will try to reduce your injury claim. It is also important for you to consult an attorney before saying anything to an insurance company adjuster following your accident. Anything you say to an adjustor could be used by the insurance company to reduce the value of your injury claim.
- Truck Accidents
The weight and force of a truck, especially when moving at high speed, creates a tremendous impact in a collision with a smaller vehicle. Severe vehicle damage and serious personal injuries, even fatalities, are almost inevitable in truck crashes. Because truck accidents often lead to high monetary judgments against trucking companies, they usually act quickly to protect themselves by bringing in investigators, insurance companies, and their own lawyers onto the scene. Contact the reliable West Palm Beach trucking accident lawyers at Clark Fountain immediately for representation that is just as forceful in protecting your claim.
- Products Liability
Our law firm has successfully represented individuals who have suffered serious harm—including brain injuries, cognitive impairment, and severe disabilities—as a result of the use of defective or misrepresented products or medical equipment. Auto and truck accidents and home accidents involving ladders, power tools, appliances, and lawn tractors also produce valid liability claims. Other products liability cases the firm pursues involve catastrophic on-the-job injuries occurring in connection with use of defective materials, equipment, and vehicles. The firm has extensive experience litigating all types of defects associated with vehicle parts like tires, roofs, seatbelts, and other product components.

- Appellate Law
As experienced trial attorneys, Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Prather, Keen & Littky-Rubin lawyers research and prepare cases thoroughly and then argue them professionally at trial, when necessary. Cases can be dismissed by the judge early in the litigation, or a full trial can precede final judgment. Most cases we handle from the beginning to the end finish when a verdict is issued, but that is not always what happens. A party unhappy with the outcome—typically the losing side, but sometimes even the winning side—can appeal. That is when the case goes to Appellate Court.
