Both the plaintiff and the defendant truck driver claimed they had a green traffic light when the intersection collision occurred.

On August 2, 2012, the plaintiff contended he was driving his work van to perform an errand for his employer and was traveling on USI south at or near the Intersection of 23rd Street in Vero Beach, Florida. The plaintiff alleged that the defendants tractor-trailer drove through a red light and impacted his vehicle in the side. The plaintiff alleged that phone records showed that the defendant truck driver was talking on his cell phone at the time of the accident.
in violation of commercial trucking laws. The plaintiffs complaint also asserted that the defendant corporation negligently hired, trained, supervised and retained the co-defendant truck driver.

The force of the impact pushed the plaintiffs van across the intersection and caused extensive damage to the plaintiffs vehicle. The plaintiff was airlifted from the accident scene to a trauma center and spent many weeks confined to a hospital. He was diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder with SLAP tear, multiple rib fractures, manubrium (sternum) fracture and lumbar disc herniation at the L5-Sl level. He also claimed that the impact caused an aggravation of a preexisting lumbar disc herniation at L4-L5.

The plaintiff claimed that his accident-related injuries have left him completely disabled from employment since the date of the accident.

The case was settled prior to trial for $1, l 00,000.

Insurance Company Destroys Automobile Insurance Coverage Form

Three law firms had taken this case and then given up on Raiford B. who was badly injured in a car crash while driving a company car. The car causing the crash was not insured and the insurance company that insured Raiford B.'s company car ignored all requests for the Uninsured Motorist waiver form which is required in Florida for automobile insurance policies. After four years of uncertainty and rejection, Raiford B. finally retained Roselli & Associates. The commitment and creative legal strategies of Robert M. Roselli resulted in the discovery of adjuster e-mails, claim file notes and policy supplements suggesting the existence of uninsured motorist coverage. Eventually, the insurance company produced a blotched and suspicious copy and depositions of insurance company representatives revealed that the insurance company had destroyed the original uninsured motorist waiver for the policy and did so after it was requested, keeping only the blotched copy. After five (5) years of contentious litigation, the perseverance of Robert M. Roselli paid off for our client who received the compensation that he deserved.

$350,000 Recovery

Hollywood, Broward County, Florida
Attorney for Plaintiff: Robert M. Roselli

Life turned upside down for Blake E., a 24 year old South Florida man, when an impatient driver tried to pass him in the emergency lane on Interstate 95 and caused a violent collision.
