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.
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.
