Personal Injury/Wrongful Death

The firm has extensive experience litigating cases arising from accidents.  These cases include general negligence arising from automobile accidents and plane crashes, negligent security, premises liability, maritime and admiralty, and construction and products liability.  The firm's use of trial presentation technology has been critical to its success.  The technology is frequently used to enhance demonstrative exhibits such as x-rays and medical reports depicting injuries, to impeach witnesses using deposition testimony and to convey the extent of suffering using day in the life videos.  The impact of this technology is enormous as it allows the fact finder to visualize and understand the extent of the subject injury or tragedy.  Though the firm most frequently prosecutes these cases, our lawyers are sometimes retained to defend parties in high stakes litigation which is likely to go to trial.  Having both successfully prosecuted and defended these cases for many years has been invaluable to the firm and its clients.  Representative cases successfully handled by the firm are as follows:

  • Federl – Received multimillion dollar judgment following bench trial in federal court in maritime action for wrongful death brought by adult children whose parents drown following a boating accident caused by the negligence of a boat chartering company. (S.D. Fla. Case No. 97-6834-CIV-FERGUSON)

  • Charafardin – Settled trucking accident case at mediation in which teenage boy suffered extensive facial and bodily scarring due to the negligent operation of a commercially driven eighteen wheeler.  (Eleventh Jud. Cir. Case No. 05-05349 CA 04)

  • Fulscher  Received notable settlement in wrongful death action brought by the mother of a young man killed in a violent collision with a flat bed tractor trailer owned by a large corporation which unlawfully blocked a major roadway to oncoming traffic while backing into a storage facility in Tampa, Florida.  (Thirteenth Judicial Circuit Case No. 00-09835- Div. A)

  • Lam – Obtained confidential settlement for the parents of the deceased in wrongful death, products liability action brought in St. Lucie County, Florida following a single sports utility vehicle rollover accident.  The accident occurred due to a defective rear tire.  (S.D. Fla.)
