Sidewalk Altercation Leads To Wrongful Death Of 43 Year Old Honduran Immigrant

 

$2,075,000 Recovery

Estate of Mario C. v. Telephone Marketing Co.
Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, Florida
Attorney for Plaintiff: Robert M. Roselli

Mario C., a forty three year old Honduran immigrant, suffered massive head injuries and ultimately died after he was pushed to the ground during a sidewalk encounter with a door to door salesman selling long distance telephone service. Because Mario was intoxicated and unable to give his side of the story, the police concluded that the salesman acted in self defense. Attorney, Robert M. Roselli was retained by Mario's sister on behalf of Mario's grieving sons who were living in Honduras. A lawsuit was immediately filed against the marketing company that employed the salesman and the long distance carrier alleging negligent hiring, training and supervision. Liability was denied. During discovery and depositions it was revealed that the salesman also worked as a nightclub bouncer and was actually still in training and accompanied by his supervisor at the time of the altercation. Aggressive investigation also led to the identification of an independent eyewitness that refuted Defendants' contention that Mario was the aggressor. Ultimately, Mr. Roselli obtained for Mario's sons a recovery of over $2 million dollars and the Justice they deserved.

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.

I-95 Collision Aggravates Low Back Condition Of 24 Year Old Man

$350,000 Recovery

Blake E. v. Negligent Driver
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. Over the next year and a half, his life was dominated by doctor visits for his low back condition that dramatically worsened after the collision and ultimately required artificial disk replacement surgery. The medical doctors involved in his care determined that the car crash clearly aggravated a prior low back condition stemming from child hood injuries and a previous car accident. Despite an excellent recovery, a settlement was reached for the young man for $350,000.00

Slip and Fall At Grocery Store Leads To Complex Knee Surgery

A visit to the local grocery store turned tragic for Kay S., a 32 year old wife and mother of two. 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). Depositions of store personnel revealed that a broken water bottle was the source of the water that caused Kay to slip, and store personnel simply failed to completely clean it up and close off the checkout lane. The consequences to Kay were devastating but ultimately she did receive the compensation that she deserved.

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.

Dosage Error By Pharmacy Causes Death Of 83 Year Old

Roselli & Associates represented Mrs. K, the widow of an eighty-three year old Georgia man who was diagnosed with gout and prescribed Colchicine to relieve his foot swelling and pain. Mrs. K filled the prescription at a nationally known pharmacy where the pharmacist negligently gave incorrect instructions that called for taking the tablets every two minutes instead of every two hours. Sadly, Mr. K took the medication "as directed" and became gravely ill from the overdose, suffered a stroke and died shortly thereafter. A settlement for Mr. K's grieving widow was reached with the pharmacy in excess of Georgia's $350,000 cap on non-economic damages.

Like Florida, the state of Georgia has recently enacted unjust laws limiting compensation for victims and their families while protecting the state's corporate and medical elite.
