22 Year Old With Pre Existing Lumbar Spondylolisthesis Requires Surgery After Car Crash

Jared, who was only 22 years old, had episodic low back pain due to a spine condition called Spondylolisthesis that developed during child hood. This condition predisposed Jared to suffer low back pain and complications if exposed to trauma. Unfortunately, that is what happened when a car ran a stop sign and broadsided his car on a Dunellon side street. The impact ultimately lead to major medical complications and a complex surgery to stabilize the affected areas of his spine. The adverse drivers insurance carrier tendered their policy limits but Jared's auto insurer refused to pay its underinsured motorist limits claiming that the condition was pre-existing. After medical expert analysis was obtained and provided to the insurance company, a settlement was reached for the $300,000 uninsured motorist policy limits.

Parasites In Salad Found To Be The Cause Of Man's Mystery Illness

Robert M. Roselli represented Rodney M., a 50 year old man who developed abdominal pain, fevers, rashes and liver lesions caused by a parasite that local doctors were unable to identify or treat. After ten months, Rodney contacted a Harvard University Professor of Parasitic Diseases who asked the question no other doctor had: Did you eat watercress? Immediately, Rodney recalled that several weeks before he fell ill, he watched a TV show espousing the health benefits of watercress and began eating raw watercress salads bought from a local grocery store. The Harvard doctor performed a blood serum analysis that identified the culprit: fasciola hepatica. While extremely rare in the U.S. human population, this parasite is found in most Florida livestock that graze near waterways laden with watercress. Rodney was then treated with an anti-parasitic agent normally used in animals. After six months, his symptoms resolved and his labs returned to normal. For the suffering endured by Rodney M. a lawsuit was filed against the grocery store and the Palm Beach County grower. Ultimately, expert analysis revealed that the watercress farm contained all of the elements needed for this parasite to thrive, including an abundance of a particular snail species known to serve as an intermediary host for this parasite. In the words of one expert, it was a "snail graveyard". After three years of contentious litigation a settlement was reached before trial for $325,000.00.

School Teacher Rendered Quadriplegic After Eating Contaminated Hot Dog - Then Dies

Christine B., a 57 year old school teacher was rendered a quadriplegic and ultimately died after nearly two (2) years and over $1 million in medical bills. She contracted Listeriosis from eating contaminated hot dogs and lunchmeats processed and sold by a large supermarket chain. Unlike other pathogens, listeria monocytogenes [LM] may not manifest symptoms for several weeks leading to a delayed diagnosis, long after the food product and packaging are gone. For that reason, LM cases are complex and costly, requiring complex expert analysis of the DNA (serotype) of the pathogen and the eating and shopping habits of the victim to establish the causal connection between the illness and the food product. Contentious litigation and discovery revealed that the processing plant had an alarming history of product contamination that was ignored by management so as to avoid a massive recall. The plant shipped over 1.7 million pounds of product to its supermarkets during this time and it was only after the lab tipped off the USDA that a massive recall was initiated. By then it was too late for Christine and the bacteria attacked and destroyed her cervical spinal cord. Christine was survived by three adult daughters who continue to be haunted by the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness while watching their mother suffer the nightmare of horrors of quadriplegia until she died. After over four years of litigation the case was settled for a substantial confidential sum.
