The construction site for a local Laundromat was the site of a serious injury to 19-year-old Ruth Ann J., who was working as a day laborer to earn money while looking for a full time job. She and friends were hired by sub-contractors to work on the roof.

Roselli was retained and a lawsuit filed against the contractor and subcontractors involved. Ultimately, a significant confidential settlement was obtained for the young lady.

While in the checkout lane, she slipped on water and landed on her knee leading causing persistent problems and ultimately a patellectomy. Kay retained Attorney Robert M. Roselli, who filed a lawsuit against the grocery store alleging they were negligent maintaining the store (which they denied).

Mother Dies Hours After Giving Birth

Connie was a loving wife and mother looking forward to the birth of her second child. Unfortunately, her doctor ignored Connie's history of pre-eclampsia during her first pregnancy and failed to take appropriate steps when she developed this condition during her second pregnancy. Connie's tragic and avoidable death just hours after giving birth left a new born motherless and her husband and six year old son emotionally devastated.

A lawsuit was brought against Connie's Obstetrician/Gynecologist (OBGYN), resulting in a substantial recovery for her husband and children. Although no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a wife and mother, at least it may ease the burden of the financial consequences.

Poor Maintenance of Apartment Complex Pool Enclosure and Fence Leads to Toddler's Tragic Drowning Death

Confidential Settlement Before Trial

Estate of Dayanne F. v. Homestead Apartment Complex
Homestead, Miami-Dade County, Florida
Attorney for Plaintiff: Robert M. Roselli

In a matter of minutes, four year-old Dayanne and her sister wandered away from their apartment and into the unlocked pool area at their apartment complex. Seconds later, Dayanne was under water. The apartment complex and its manager were emphatic that the gate was locked and secured and blamed Dayanne's death on her grieving mother. Immediate action by Attorney Robert M. Roselli, to preserve key evidence and testimony, proved the pool was merely "secured" by a damaged gate, rusty chain and open padlock. Depositions of local police officers revealed frequent prior occasions when the gate was left unlocked and unguarded. While no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a child, a confidential settlement was negotiated before trial on behalf of the grieving mother.

When Bob Roselli makes the decision to take your case, it is an expression of total commitment to injury victims and their families.
