Personal Injury Settlement and Verdict Client Success Stories
- $65 Million Bus Shelter Electrocution Verdict. In 2005, a Miami jury awarded a $65.1 million verdict on behalf of our client against Eller Media Company. This was for the electrocution death of a 12-year-old boy. Our Miami personal injury law firm represented the family and presented the case to the jury. The jury then found that the boy’s death was caused by Eller Media employees’ poor electrical work at a Miami bus shelter. The jury awarded both compensatory and punitive damages against Eller Media.
- $11 Million Truck Insurance Policy Limits Settlement. Our personal injury law firm had an $11 million policy limits settlement in 2007. It involved a gas tanker truck explosion case that killed a husband and wife, leaving two college-age children without parents. The gas tanker truck was traveling at a high rate of speed with 9,000 gallons of fuel when it lost control on highway 595 in Broward County.
- Million Dollar Verdict against Cruise Line. In November 2011, our cruise injury lawyers secured a million dollar jury verdict against Celebrity Cruises. This was for a crewmember who underwent unnecessary surgery to insert a pacemaker. Celebrity Cruises flew the 31-year old cruise line chef to Santo Domingo after he experienced headaches and pain to his face while working on a Celebrity cruise ship. Following the unnecessary surgery, the crewmember suffered debilitating injuries and had to then use a walker. A Miami jury found the cruise line negligent in its care and treatment of its employee and, thus, awarded the $1 million verdict.
- Asbestos Lawsuit. Our personal injury law firm successfully represented the Miami-Dade County School Board as well as the University of Miami in seeking compensation for millions of dollars spent removing asbestos from buildings.
