CONFIDENTIAL – Traumatic Brain Injury - Construction Personal Injury Accident - Settlement

A 15 year old girl was walking home from school. Construction on the sidewalk forced her to divert her path. On her right was dirt. On her left was the street. Unfortunately she went left. A taxicab drove over her foot. She fell onto the sidewalk. In the process of the fall she twisted her knee and hit her head against the sidewalk. This office sued seven (7) different defendants on negligence theories. We sued a: general contractor; subcontractor; engineer; taxicab company; taxicab owner; taxicab driver; and municipality. The case was heavily contested. Ultimately, before trial, we reached very favorable settlements with all seven (7) defendants.

Personal Injury

$720,000.00 Premises Liability Jury Verdict

Our clients came to this country from a small farming community in Haiti in search of a better life. They were in a house that they rented. In the middle of the night, while they were sleeping, there was a fire. It was never determined how the fire started. Our elderly male clients were seriously injured. They had lived in their house for several years, and claimed there were no smoke detectors in the house, in violation of Florida Law. Defendants falsely claimed there were smoke detectors. We were able to help our clients achieve justice by bringing the fire lieutenant and head of trauma surgery for Jackson Health Systems to testify at our clients' jury trial. The jury awarded our clients $720,000.00.

Liability Jury

$650,000.00 Car Accident Jury Verdict – Traumatic Brain Injury - Uninsured Motorist Claim

Our client was injured when a van reversed from a driveway onto a busy street and collided into the side of our client's vehicle. He sustained multiple injuries to his brain, neck, lower back, and knee. Unfortunately for his case, the damages to the vehicle were not too significant considering the damages claimed. Nevertheless, we litigated this matter and received maximum value from the negligent parties. Since this settlement did not cover all of our client's damages, we went after his underinsured motorist insurance company, Geico. At a jury trial, the jury awarded our client $650,000.00.

Car Accident Jury Verdict

$360,000.00 Slip and Fall Jury Verdict – Wrist Injury – Federal Court

Our client slipped and fell while waiting for her family to rent a car at an airport. Slip and fall cases in business establishments are very difficult to prove because, essentially, you need to show that the liquid was on the floor for a sufficient length of time so that the establishment owner would have had an opportunity to correct the problem. We established this by having multiple people execute affidavits that proved that they were in the direct area of the location where our client ultimately slipped and fell and during the time they were there, they did not see anyone spill anything. Thankfully, the Federal Judge permitted the case to go to the jury and the jury awarded our client $360,000.00.
