Toddler Falls From Balcony Railing Suffering Skull Fracture

Confidential Settlement

Parents on behalf of Minor Child v. Apartment Complex Owner and Managers
Margate, Broward County, Florida
Attorney for Plaintiff: Robert M. Roselli

Immediate court action by attorney Robert M. Roselli to preserve the remains of a broken balcony railing at an apartment complex proved critical for the grieving parents of a four year old boy who fell from the balcony when the wood railing suddenly gave way, causing a young todler to fall from the balcony and suffer serious head injuries. Experts retained by Mr. Roselli analyzed the railing and determined that the wood railing was rotten and merely painted over. During further investigation and depositions, it was revealed that the hazardous condition of the railings was known to the apartment owners and the management but appropriate action to remedy the hazardous and potentially deadly condition was delayed in order to save money. Moreover, despite the hundreds of children living in the apartment complex, the manager did not think it important to warn the residents of the hazard. Ultimately, the city demanded repair and replacement of the railings and the toddler and his parents received the compensation they deserved.

When Bob Roselli makes the decision to take your case, it is an expression of total commitment to injury victims and their families.

Low Impact Car Crash Aggravates Pre-Existing Cervical Degeneration

Marta C., a 43 year old single mom and part time housekeeper from Columbia, was rear-ended by an SUV leaving little damage to her car and none to the Defendant's vehicle. However, her persistent cervical pain following the crash led to epidurals and eventually surgery. The typical defenses of minimal property damage and preexisting cervical degeneration were raised after litigation commenced following a pre-suit offer of $7,500.00. A demand for judgment for $250,000 was ignored. After depositions of the defense doctors went badly for the Defense, the insurer settled the case before trial for $400,000.00.

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.

17 Year Old Back Seat Passenger Suffers Jaw Fracture In Auto Accident

Minutes after leaving a Temple service, 17 year old Alexandra M. suffered serious injuries including a jaw fracture when her father's car was rear ended at high speed by a company vehicle. Medical experts determined that despite excellent healing and alignment of the fractured jaw, she would have lasting nerve damage. A lawsuit was filed by Robert M. Roselli on behalf of the injured party and ultimately a recovery was obtained for her of over $500,000.

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.

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.

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.
