Gravel Truck Crushes Small Pick Up At Florida Turnpike Toll Booth

A young man on his way to work suffered a serious injuries to his cervical spine when a Mack truck hauling 80,000 pounds of road rock barreled through a Florida turnpike toll lane in Boca Raton, crashing into his pick up truck that was was stopped to pay the toll. The crushing impact propelled the pick up nearly the length of a football field. Juan, the diver of the pick up, suffered serious neck and back injuries that required extensive medical treatment, therapy and testing. MRI studies revealed that he sustained a cervical spine disc herniation, but fortunately he did not require surgery. Juan retained attorney Robert M. Roselli who took immediate action to preserve the vehicle and other key evidence, including the surveillance video tape at the Dept of Transportation toll booth. Ultimately Mr. Robert Roselli obtained a recovery of $250,000 on behalf of Juan.

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.

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.
