Case Highlight

In February, 2017, our client John Doe was driving his Chevy Silverado on Highway 20 in Niceville, FL. At the same time, an 18 year old girl was driving behind Mr. Doe in a Dodge pickup truck owned by her parents. When Mr. Doe stopped for traffic, the 18 year old was distracted and trying to retrieve her purse from the passenger seat and slammed into the rear end of our client. Mr. Doe retained our firm to help him following the crash.

Mr. Doe was a healthy 33 year old at the time of the crash. Unfortunately, the crash caused Mr. Doe to sustain a significant neck injury which required surgery. Prior to the surgery, our firm communicated with the major national insurance company that insured the 18 year old and her parents. The insurance company’s policy limits were $100,000. Despite the fact that it was clear that our client sustained a significant injury as a result of the crash, the insurance company refused to act in good faith and pay its $100,000 policy limit. Rather, it only offered our client $10,000. Therefore, we were forced to file a lawsuit against the 18 year old and her parents. Through our efforts litigating the case, we were able to prove that our client was almost certainly going to obtain a judgement against the 18 year old and her parents that would exceed the $100,000 policy limit and that the insurance company would be held in bad faith and be required to pay that judgement. Rather than continue with additional years of litigation, we were able to obtain a settlement for our client for $200,000, twice the policy limit of the insurance company.

Anesthesia errors can cause major problems for patients

Anesthesia errors can cause major problems for patients

People who have surgery and other medical procedures may need to have anesthesia administered. Unfortunately, this comes with risks. Those risks should be explained to you ahead of time, but this might not be done. It's imperative that anyone who's going under anesthesia give informed consent unless the procedure is a critical emergency.

There are several categories of injuries that might occur when a person is placed under anesthesia. These include:

  • Tooth damage
  • Death
  • Nerve damage
  • Major organ damage
  • Pain
  • Cardiopulmonary arrest
  • Brain damage

What types of children's products are most dangerous?

Case Highlight

One statistic published by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in 2013 captured how there are, on average, as many as 450 product recalls each year. Kids tend to find themselves attracted to handling particular objects or putting them in their mouths. The organization's researchers found that some products pose significantly more dangerous to children than others.

The 2013 CPSC report highlighted how dangerous trampolines could be. The American Academy of Pediatrics issued a public statement warning parents against purchasing trampolines a few years ago. They noted that trampolines are most dangerous when multiple children are jumping on them simultaneously. They pointed out that this puts kids at high risk for dislocations or fractures.

John Doe was a manager at a prominent sports bar when he sat in a chair to print out documents at a computer. As he sat in the chair, it broke apart, causing him to fall to the ground. John attempted to continue working that day but was ultimately sent home due to increasing back pain and within days he began to lose feeling in his legs. Over the next several years, John Doe would have multiple back surgeries and pain management procedures due to his injuries but nevertheless still suffered from pain and limitations. John was eventually found to be disabled and lost his job.

When uncertain as to his legal remedies, John turned to Robert Fleming of the Walborsky Bradley Fleming firm for assistance. Robert ultimately had to file suit on John’s behalf against those entities involved in the design, manufacture, and sale of the broken chair, the company that assembled the chair, and John’s employer, who lost the chair before it could be examined for defects. All defendants initially denied liability and refused to compensate John Doe for his injuries and losses. Through years of litigation, John was finally paid a substantial but confidential settlement amount that will assist in taking care of John’s needs for the remainder of his life.

Case Highlight

John Doe entered a Northwest Florida hospital with a simple case of pneumonia. At the time, his wife was battling terminal cancer and he was primarily caring for their 14 year old son. While he was at the hospital, the doctors made the decision to intubate him. Tragically, the hospital, doctors and staff failed to properly intubate him and failed to recognize the failure. As a result of the negligence, John Doe suffered brain damage due to lack of oxygen. The tragedy was multiplied when John’s wife passed away days after John’s injury, leaving their 14 year old son without his mother and a father with severe brain damage. The family turned to Walborsky & Bradley and partner Brent Bradley for help.

Brent first had to guide the family through the process of opening guardianships for John and his son. Then experts were obtained to prove the negligence of the medical team and to determine John’s healthcare needs and his loss of income for the rest of his life. Due to the hard work and advanced preparation of the case, the hospital agreed to pay John $4,600,000 only seven months following the injury. The family was able to avoid years of litigation and will be able to provide for John’s and his son’s needs thanks to the prompt resolution of the case. Walborsky & Bradley was honored to represent this exceptional family and was proud to be able to help this family quickly recover significant compensation.

These tips can keep you and your kids safe by the pool

Pool-related injuries are common during the summer in Florida. With the high temperatures and easy access to pools -- at home, at the neighbors, at the park, etc -- it seems like many people spend most of the summer months searching for a way to cool off.

This lifestyle can be fun for both adults and children. However, it also comes with risks. This type of exposure to an activity that can be fatal increases the odds that someone will at least end up in the hospital. To prevent that, use these pool safety tips:

Where does Florida rank for drunk driving?

Case Highlight

When you read drunk driving statistics, you often see national statistics and trends. While these can be very telling when you're just trying to get the big picture overall, they don't necessarily tell you what types of risks you face. Does the number of drunk drivers in California make a difference to you in Florida? What about the number in Montana or New York or Hawaii?

The answer is clear: You want to know where Florida ranks. That's what impacts your life the most. That's what changes your personal risk level every time you get on the road.
