Wayne Hogan


About Wayne Hogan

Wayne Hogan is president of Terrell Hogan Ellis Yegelwel. Formed in 1974, is the largest trial firm in North Florida representing only injury and accident victims. The firm's practice includes wrongful death, trucking accidents, auto accidents and highway accidents, burn injuries, defective products, dangerous drugs, medical malpractice and nursing home abuse, negligent motel, apartment, and shopping center security and safety failures, insurance litigation, and toxic tort litigation. The firm has been involved in multi defendant litigation in the toxic tort field for three decades.

Hogan, past president of the Florida Justice Association and Florida and National Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer, was educated at the Florida State University (B.A. 1969; J.D., with High Honors, 1972).

Founding Chair of the Florida Justice Association Environmental Law Section, Mr. Hogan has focused his personal practice in the field of products liability and toxic torts. His extensive experience in the field of punitive damages includes verdicts in dozens of defective products trials and representing the plaintiffs in Florida's first asbestos disease punitive damages trial and the precedent setting appeal, Johns Manville Sales Corp. v. Janssens, 463 So.2d 262 (Fla. 1st DCA 1984). That decision sustained allowing multiple punitive damages awards for recklessness that harmed thousands of innocent workers. Hogan also obtained the Florida Supreme Court's approval of a merged successor's punitive damages liability for the recklessness of its predecessor, Celotex Corp. v. Pickett, 490 So.2d 35 (Fla. 1986).
