Car Accident Verdicts

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

  • Vallescura v. Mitsubishi - $5.8 million verdict for a burned hand and mild brain damage received by a young female passenger in an automobile accident. This was another case in which we proved that our client suffered brain injury even though no x-ray or scan showed such damage.

  • Levine - March 7, 2006 - A jury awarded $5.25 million to the children of Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Steven Levine, who was killed by a drunk driver in 2001.

    On Dec. 8, 2001, Levine, 47, was driving his red Corvette on Krome Avenue near Homestead when a Chevy pickup truck driven by Jose Hernandez ran a stop sign at approximately 80 mph and smashed into his car, instantly killing the Judge and his passenger.

    Mr. Hernandez, the defendant, had a blood alcohol rate of .232 percent, nearly three times the legal limit of .08 percent. He had just left the Coyote Bar with his passenger, Ruben Soto, who had also been drinking heavily.

    Judge Levine, a 15-year veteran of the bench, left behind a widow, Tracy Howard, and two minor children. Tracy Howard sued in 2002, charging Hernandez with negligence.

    Hernandez was convicted of vehicular manslaughter and sentenced to 25 years in prison.

    The two-day civil trial started Monday, March 6. After 30 minutes of deliberations on the afternoon of March 7, the jury awarded Judge Levine's family $5.25 million.

  • Valle - August 8, 2006 - A jury awarded $3.9 million to the mother of Maria Valle, a 33 year old woman who was killed by a drunk driver in 2001.

    On September 28, 2001, Maria Valle was a backseat passenger in a vehicle that was rear ended while it was stopped at a traffic light by a pick up truck driven by Marvin Hood, a drunk driver. Attorney Manuel Dobrinsky argued to the jury that the loss of her daughter devastated Mrs. Valle and her family.

    The two-day civil trial started Monday, August 7th. After one hour of deliberations, the jury awarded Mrs. Valle $3.9 million.

  • Vetter v. Byron - $3.374 million verdict for a severe degloving injury to a 17 year old boy's left (non-dominant) arm.

    On April 5, 2005 a Broward County jury found JUSTIN THEODORE BYRON responsible for the injuries sustained by ANTHONY LOUIS VETTER in a car accident. As result, the jury, made up of four women and two men awarded VETTER $3,374,000.00.

    October 11, 2003, BYRON, who was 17 at the time of the accident, was traveling Eastbound on Royal Palm Blvd. Just past NW 107th Avenue, BYRON made a U-turn on to the Westbound traffic and collided with the vehicle being driven by VETTER, who was also 17 at the time of the accident. Following the impact, VETTERS vehicle collided with a median causing his vehicle to overturn at least once.

    As a result of the accident, VETTER suffered a severe degloving injury to his left (non-dominant) arm severing an artery and veins. A degloving injury is an injury in which the entire skin is torn from either a leg or arm by blunt trauma to the extremity involved. At the time of the accident, doctors feared that VETTER would lose his arm. Over the course of seven months, Mr. VETTER underwent 14 surgical procedures. However, with the assistance of concerned citizens who made homemade tourniquets to keep VETTER from bleeding to death at the scene, and some very talented and dedicated doctors, VETTER was able to keep his arm and has regained some function in the arm and hand.

    (ANTHONY LOUIS VETTER V. JUSTIN THEODORE BYRON, Broward Circuit Court, 17th Judicial Circuit, Case No. 04-4184-03).

Mauricio Saavedra - A $640,587 jury verdict for the victim of a scooter/automobile accident who suffered a broken right femur which required surgery and the placement of a rod in his leg, and a fractured right orbit which also required surgery and the placement of a plate and screws in his head.

    MIAMI, Fla.- On August 22, 2004, Robert Adams was driving his scooter on N.W. 59th street in Broward County when he collided with motorist Mauricio Saavedra who was backing up his vehicle. Mr. Saavedra and his insurance company sued Mr. Adams for vehicle damage sustained in the accident. Mr. Adams filed a counterclaim against Mr. Saavedra and a jury found Mr. Saavedra 100% liable and awarded $640,587.

    As a result of the accident, Mr. Adams suffered a broken right femur which required surgery and the placement of a rod in his leg, and a fractured right orbit which also required surgery and the placement of a plate and screws in his head. Mr. Adams also now suffers from migraine headaches.

    "Mr. Saavedra denied liability and claimed that my client, Mr. Adams himself, was negligent and attacked the causation of his headaches as a result of the accident, said attorney Randy Rosenblum of Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A. "We filed a counterclaim against Mr. Saavedra to help cover Mr. Adams' outstanding medical bills, future medical expenses, lost wages and for pain and suffering."

    Rosenblum added, "The defense presented expert testimony from a neurologist, a dentist, an orthopedic surgeon and accident reconstructionist. On Mr. Adams behalf, we presented testimony of the surgeon who operated on his right leg and the doctor who repaired his fractured right orbit and an accident reconstructionist."

    The jury found that Mr. Saavedra was 100% liable and ruled in favor of Mr. Adams on January 25, 2008, in Circuit Court in and for the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit in and for Broward County. The Honorable John T. Luzzo presided.

    August 25, 2006 - Manuel Dobrinsky and Randy Rosenblum obtained a $478,000 jury verdict for their client, Gloria Boykins. Ms. Boykins was driving her car on Interstate I-95 as part of a funeral procession. Her car came to a complete stop on the exit ramp of 135th street at which time her vehicle was struck from behind by the defendant's vehicle. Ms. Boykins suffered injuries to her temporomandibular joints in her jaw, a tear of the meniscus in her right knee for which she underwent knee surgery, back pain, neck pain and constant headaches. At trial, her treating physicians testified that she would require surgery to her temporomandibular joints and a second surgery to her right knee based on a new tear of the meniscus caused by an overall weakening of her knee since the accident and first surgery.

    The defendant called four doctors at trial, all of whom testified that none of Ms. Boykins injuries were permanent in nature, none were related to the motor vehicle accident and that her injuries all preexisted the date of the accident
