Florida Personal Injury Settlements

Achieving Verdicts and Settlements for Victims of Catastrophic Injuries in Miami-Dade, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Broward, Fort Lauderdale, St. Lucie, Martin and throughout Florida

Our excellent trial record leads to significant out of court settlements. Here are some of the settlements we have received for our clients:

Most cases result in a lower recovery. It should not be assumed that your case will have as beneficial a result.

  • In April, 2006 a fifteen year old Kendall resident was admitted to a Miami-Dade County hospital for heart surgery. Although the surgery went well, the next morning it was discovered that a pulmonary clamp had not been removed. Although emergency surgery was performed to remove the clamp, the young girl had suffered irreparable damage to her lungs and other internal organs. Sadly, she died leaving behind two grieving parents and three brothers and sisters.

    The lawyers at Freidin•Dobrinsky were able to obtain a quick confidential resolution of the case to allow the parents of this young girl to obtain justice on her behalf and provide for the education of their other three children.

  • In 2001 K.L. a seaman aboard a commercial cruise vessel injured his hand when it got caught on an improperly designed and maintained water maker. Freidin•Dobrinsky sued the vessel owner under the Jones Act and for Unseaworthiness as well as the manufacturer of the water maker alleging that the manufacturer had negligently designed the water maker and the vessel owner improperly maintained the unit.

    Freidin•Dobrinsky was able to obtain confidential settlements from the vessel owner and the manufacturer for the injuries the seaman sustained to his hand.

  • In 2001 a Doral resident was riding his motorcycle on S.W. 8th Street when a European tourist driving a rental car made a left turn in front of him and severed his left leg. As a result of the accident, the Plaintiff who worked as a stage hand for commercial shoots lost his leg and was unable to continue working.

    During the course of the litigation, the defendant driver and the car rental agency alleged that the Plaintiff was speeding and driving in the wrong lane. Freidin•Dobrinsky hired an accident reconstructionist and a motorcycle expert and convinced the car rental agency that the Plaintiff was not at fault in the accident.

    Based on the testimony of the two experts Freidin•Dobrinsky was able to obtain an out of court confidential settlement which provided Plaintiff with some justice for the loss of his leg.

  • In late December 2002 through the spring of 2003 Plaintiff, a 74-year old woman, was a resident at a Miami-Dade County Assisted Living Facility. At the time of her admission to the ALF, Plaintiff was known to be a paranoid schizophrenic requiring anti-psychotic medication to reduce the effects of the schizophrenia, particularly delusions and hallucinations. Unfortunately, the facility failed to provide the Plaintiff with appropriate medications and psychiatric care causing her to suffer from psychotic episodes which rendered her helpless to control hallucinations, delusions, fits of rage and aggression.

    On the last day of her admission, the Plaintiff suffered from an uncontrolled psychotic rage, which caused the facility to call the police. In attempting to control the Plaintiff, the police injured her eye, arrested her and had her put in jail.

    The lawyers at Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A. persuaded the trial court that the Assisted Living Facilities Actions warranted a claim for punitive damages. Soon after the court granted the Plaintiff leave to amend her complaint to add a claim for punitive damages, the defendant agreed to settle the case and compensate the Plaintiff for her injuries and her pain and suffering.

  • Confidential Settlement for a Cruise Ship Passenger Who Tore His Meniscus When he Slipped and Fell on Spilled Water in the Dining Area

    In October 27, 2004, Plaintiff was a passenger on a cruise ship based out of Miami Florida. While attempting to get a drink at one of the restaurant's beverage stands, Plaintiff slipped on water that had accumulated on the marble floor. As a result of the fall, Plaintiff injured his knee and lower back which ultimately required surgery. Plaintiff claimed that as a result of the injury he continues to suffer from both knee and back pain.

    The lawyers at Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A. were able to obtain a successful confidential settlement to reimburse the Plaintiff for his medical bills as well as his pain and suffering.

  • Confidential Settlement Against a Condominium and It's Security Company for a Coconut Grove Real Estate Agent Who Tripped and Fell at an Improperly Maintained Entrance Way

    On or about February 26, 2005, Plaintiff, a Coconut Grove real estate agent, arrived by car at a Hallandale, Florida condominium. She stepped up on the curb and walked around towards the back of her car to take out some items from the trunk. Unfortunately, the condominium and its security company negligently placed the floor mat over the curb in a manner that made it appear as if it was on solid ground instead of hanging over the edge of the curb. Plaintiff, stepped on the mat, tripped and fractured her ankle in three places.

    As a result of the accident, Plaintiff had to undergo emergency surgery and many months of rehabilitation. She now also suffers from lower back pain as a result of her altered gait.

    Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A. was able to obtain a successful confidential settlement from the condominium and its security company to compensate the Plaintiff for her medical expenses and her pain and suffering as a result of her slip and fall.

  • Confidential Settlement for a Bal Harbor Resident Who Suffered a Fractured Pelvis When She Was Run Over by a Delivery Man in Her Condominium

    On November 30, 2005, Plaintiff was standing in the lobby of her Bal Harbor, Florida condominium talking to the concierge when a delivery man ran into the lobby carrying four boxes in his arms. Because the boxes covered his view, the delivery man did not see the Plaintiff and thus he ran into her and barreled her into the ground.

    As a result of this accident, the Plaintiff suffered a severe injury to her pelvis which required hospitalization, and then treatment at a residential rehabilitation facility. The Plaintiff eventually returned home with the need for home health care.

    The lawyers at Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A. were able to obtain a successful, confidential settlement for the plaintiff which fairly compensated her for her medical bills and her pain and suffering as a result of her injuries.

  • In the Case of C.M. vs. Hospital, we were able to obtain a $1.4 million settlement in presuit for a 71 year old male who was improperly intubated after suffering a cardiac arrest after undergoing a carotid endarterectomy.

  • IN RE AMERICAN FAMILY PUBLISHERS we were one of the firms representing consumers in this nationwide class action for unfair consumer trade practices which resulted in a negotiated settlement in which AFP paid $32 million to compensate individuals who had been taken advantage of by the deceptive sweepstakes mailings.
