England vs. School Board on Monroe County
$3,500,000.00 settlement of a near drowning case in which the teachers at Key West High School negligently failed to supervise our client, who was a special needs student, at the school’s swimming pool. Because of the limitations of Florida’s sovereign immunity law which limits injured accident victim’s rights, we had to convince the Florida Legislature to pass a Claims Bill into law.
Sara Bustillo vs. Marisela Perez
$3,015,000.00 Verdict, in a wrongful death car accident case in Miami in which Ms. Bustillo's fourteen year old son was killed while riding his bicycle to school along a neighborhood sidewalk. We convinced a jury to find the driver was negligent in striking and killing our client.
Celestin vs. L.C. International, Inc.
$2,000,000.00 settlement, of a tractor trailer truck accident case in El Paso, Texas in which our Florida client suffered a brain injury. We sued the owner of the tractor trailer because their driver was speeding and slammed into the rear of our client’s vehicle. Through multiple trips to Texas and by complying evidence with accident reconstruction experts, we convinced the tractor trailer’s insurance company to pay their policy limits.
Vente v. Cornerstone Residential Management
$1,826,000.00 Verdict in a negligent security premises liability case. Our client was attacked by a fleeing felon while she was in her apartment at the defendant’s North Miami apartment complex, forcing her to jump from her third floor window to escape certain death. Our client suffered spinal, pelvic and wrist fractures. We sued the defendant for failing to determine that violent crime was foreseeable at its apartment complex and for failing to take necessary security precautions to prevent attacks.
Doe vs. Backhoe Manufacturer
$1,300,000.00 settlement of a products liability case after three weeks of trial in Ft. Myers, Florida. Mr. Doe suffered an amputation of his leg below the knee when the backhoe he was operating rolled-over. We sued the defendant manufacturer for failing to design and install necessary roll-over protection.
Garcia v. Truck Driver
$1,000,000.00 settlement of a truck accident case in Polk County, in which our client suffered two fractured arms and two broken legs. We were able to prove the truck driver was speeding when he slammed into the rear of our client’s car as it was stopped for a red light.
Patient vs. General Hospital
$1,000,000.00 settlement of a medical malpractice case in which our client died due to a Miami radiologist’s misdiagnosis of colon cancer. We were able to prove that the hospital’s radiologist failed to see a suspicious lesion which unfortunately turned into incurable cancer.
Patient vs. Hospital
$1,000.000.00 settlement of a medical malpractice case in Miami which our client suffered osmotic demyelination syndrome due to the hospital and its doctors failing to properly monitor her condition so that her sodium levels to increase at too rapidly.
Renter vs. Affordable Housing Apartment Complex
$1,000,000.00 settlement of a negligent security premises liability case in Tampa, Florida. Our client was attacked in his apartment within an affordable housing apartment complex. Our client suffered a fractured skull. We brought a claim against the apartment complex for failing to take any preventative measures to prevent foreseeable crime. The apartment complex failed to maintain their car and pedestrian entry gates, which allowed an intruder to easily enter the apartment complex. Also, the apartment complex chose not to hire security guards despite the fact that the surrounding neighborhood was known to have frequent crime.
