$1,100,000 Recovery

MOTOR VEHICLE NEGLIGENCE - AUTO/TRACTOR TRAILER COLLISION - RED LIGHT /GREEN LIGHT - SHOULDER DISLOCATION - MULTIPLE RIB FRACTURES - LUMBAR DISC HERNIATION - TOTAL DISABILITY FROM EMPLOYMENT CLAIMED.

Broward County, Fl

The plaintiff in this motor vehicle negligence action was a 67-year old maintenance worker at the time his vehicle collided with a 2005 Freightliner tractor-trailer driven by the defendant driver in the course and scope of his employment with the defendant corporation. Both the plaintiff and the defendant truck driver claimed they had a green traffic light when the intersection collision occurred.

On August 2, 2012, the plaintiff contended he was driving his work van to perform an errand for his employer and was traveling on USI south at or near the Intersection of 23rd Street in Vero Beach, Florida. The plaintiff alleged that the defendants tractor-trailer drove through a red light and impacted his vehicle in the side. The plaintiff alleged that phone records showed that the defendant truck driver was talking on his cell phone at the time of the accident.
in violation of commercial trucking laws. The plaintiffs complaint also asserted that the defendant corporation negligently hired, trained, supervised and retained the co-defendant truck driver.

The force of the impact pushed the plaintiffs van across the intersection and caused extensive damage to the plaintiffs vehicle. The plaintiff was airlifted from the accident scene to a trauma center and spent many weeks confined to a hospital. He was diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder with SLAP tear, multiple rib fractures, manubrium (sternum) fracture and lumbar disc herniation at the L5-Sl level. He also claimed that the impact caused an aggravation of a preexisting lumbar disc herniation at L4-L5.
The plaintiff underwent arthroscopic shoulder surgery and was recommended for a lumbar laminectomy and fusion. However, he declined the lumbar surgery and it was not performed. The plaintiff claimed that his accident-related injuries have left him completely disabled from employment since the date of the accident.

The defendant contended that the plaintiffs alleged lumbar injuries and recommendation for surgery was caused by preexisting conditions and not related to the accident. The defense stressed that the plaintiff had complained of similar lumbar symptoms before the date of the subject collision.

The case was settled prior to trial for $1, l 00,000.

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.

Road Trip To University Of Florida Turns Tragic For Miami College Students

When Albert D. awoke in a north Florida hospital, barely able to move, the last thing he remembered was riding with friends in a van they rented for a road trip to Gainseville. The family immediately retained attorney Robert M. Roselli who initiated an immediate investigation and learned that the driver of the van fell asleep and the van veered off the road, slamming into an embankment before landing upside down in tree canopy below. Automotive engineers were retained by Mr. Roselli to analyze potential vehicle malfunction or defect, but it was ultimately determined that sole cause of the crash was driver error. Ultimately, a substantial recovery was obtained for Albert who suffered serious injuries to his head and face in this unfortunate and avoidable automobile accident.

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.
