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.

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.

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.

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.

Skier alleges she was injured by Heavenly employee boarding on job

BY MARTHA BELLISLE

A skier who was injured when a Heavenly Ski Resort employee ran into her while on his snowboard last January is suing the resort's owners, claiming Vail Resorts Inc. is liable for its employee's alleged negligence.

Skier Kimberly Bland, on vacation from Florida, was stopped on the lower Olympic downhill run on the Nevada side of the resort, at about 3:50 p.m. on Jan. 18, trying to decide where to ski next, when Heavenly lift operator Daniel Barreno crashed into Bland on his snowboard, the suit said.

Mother Dies Hours After Giving Birth

Connie was a loving wife and mother looking forward to the birth of her second child. Unfortunately, her doctor ignored Connie's history of pre-eclampsia during her first pregnancy and failed to take appropriate steps when she developed this condition during her second pregnancy. Connie's tragic and avoidable death just hours after giving birth left a new born motherless and her husband and six year old son emotionally devastated.

A lawsuit was brought against Connie's Obstetrician/Gynecologist (OBGYN), resulting in a substantial recovery for her husband and children. Although no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a wife and mother, at least it may ease the burden of the financial consequences.
