Wrongful Death Of 4 Year Old Boy Who Wandered Into Apartment Complex Pool

In a matter of minutes, the life of a young Homestead family was turned upside down when their four year old son, Odnel, wandered into the unguarded pool of their apartment complex, fell into the water and drowned. Revived by paramedics and rushed to Miami Childrens Hospital, Odnel held on for more than two weeks until his frail body finally succumbed to the catastrophic brain damage he suffered. A wrongful death lawsuit was brought by attorney Robert M. Roselli on behalf of Odnel's devastated parents, seeking justice for the untimely death of the boy which could have been avoided had the apartment complex and the apartment manager simply replaced the rusty padlock and latch. Ultimately, a substantial confidential settlement was reached for the family.

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.

The truck driver then continued north until being chased down by other truckers and forced to stop until the State Troopers arrived.

Following the crash, the couple retained attorney Robert M. Roselli and immediate action was taken to obtain witness accounts and preserve critical evidence including their crushed vehicle. Medical experts were also retained to evaluate Amanda's nasal fracture and facial lacerations, and the cost of future treatment and surgery. Ultimately, a settlement was reached for sum of $220,000.00 for the young couple.
