Our Miami Injury Firm's Results Billions of Dollars Recovered

  • Auto Accident - Bad Faith

    Our client, a young teenage girl, was sunbathing at the beach when a vehicle negligently ran over her, causing severe brain damage. The insurance company initially refused to offer their policy limits and, instead chose to litigate. After lengthy litigation, including claims that the insurance company was acting in bad faith, we were able to obtain a $17 million dollar settlement which was, at the time, the largest of its kind in the state of Florida.

  • Distracted Driving

    Our clients, who had been married for over 50 years, were struck by a distracted driver as they tried to cross the street to get back to their hotel. He sustained severe injuries, but survived, while tragically she did not, leaving behind five daughters and eighteen grandchildren. The loss has been immeasurable. We discovered that the driver’s company had a practice of notifying its drivers, by text message, of their next job location. While on the phone, the driver was distracted and did not see our clients crossing the street. Ultimately, the case settled confidentially.

  • Dram Shop

    A minor who was repeatedly served, and overserved, alcohol by two different bars, got behind the wheel of her car and struck our client, a young mother, causing severe brain damage. While the driver was prosecuted criminally, we worked tirelessly to ensure that the bars were also held accountable for their reckless and negligent conduct. Ultimately, we were able to obtain a multi-million dollar settlement on behalf of our client.

    A woman who died as a result of her doctor's failure to properly diagnose her aggressive breast cancer had $4 million worth of settlement monies awarded to her estate. The doctor responsible had twice diagnosed and removed benign tumors from his patient in the early 1990s. In 2001 the woman again visited the same doctor, who diagnosed a new breast lump as a benign tumor with "no sign of malignancy". Upon getting a second opinion over a year later after noticing that the lump had grown, she was informed that "the cancer had spread". The woman did not respond to treatment and died less than a year later.

Tragically, in the process, he suffered severe spinal cord damage and was rendered a complete quadriplegic. A testament to his family, his spirit has not dampened. On a confidential basis, we were able to resolve the case for multiple millions of dollars.
