22 Year Old With Pre Existing Lumbar Spondylolisthesis Requires Surgery After Car Crash

$300,000 Settlement

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.

Parasites In Salad Found To Be The Cause Of Man's Mystery Illness

$325,000 Settlement

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.

Rear-End Crash Causes Cervical Compression Fracture

An elderly couple was rear ended by a drunk driver, causing multiple injuries to the injured wife who suffered a cervical compression fracture and aggravation of her pre-existing and degenerative cervical condition which included a prior cervical surgery. Fortunately, there was no spinal cord involvement. However, she did develop acute pain that could not be alleviated from conservative methods compelling and epidural injection. The extent of the degeneration in her cervical spine made further injections or surgery an impossibility.

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.

Truck Crushes Small Car on Turnpike and Flees

Keith M. and his nineteen year old wife, Amanda, suffered serious injuries when a tractor trailer suddenly changed lanes on the turnpike, crushing the front passenger compartment of their small car and causing them serious injuries. The truck driver then continued north until being chased down by other truckers and forced to stop until the State Troopers arrived. Fortunately, Keith and Amanda's injuries were not life threatening and no harm was done to their baby who was protected by the car seat in the back seat of the car. Amanda, however, did suffered a fractured nose, a forehead laceration, and a low back injury; Keith suffered neck and back injuries as well. 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.

Low Impact Car Crash Aggravates Pre-Existing Cervical Degeneration

$400,000 Recovery

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.

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.
