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.
