Quintairos, Prieto, Wood, & Boyer, P.A., Miami-Hub Partners, led by the indomitable trio of Rebecca Aroca, Trelvis Randolph, and Dexter Romanez, showcased unparalleled determination and legal expertise, achieving a triumphant $1.7K net verdict for their client in a challenging traumatic brain injury case. Their relentless dedication and strategic brilliance not only secured justice but also deftly averted an initial claim of $1.7 million, marking a resounding victory for their client.

Overview of the Case

  1. The trio represented a large retailer in a trip and fall case where Plaintiff tripped on a parking bumper in a handicapped spot.
  2. The bumper had broken rebar, and was not painted the correct color per local ordinances.
  3. Plaintiff alleged a double code violation and obtained a jury instruction supporting that claim.
  4. Additionally, Plaintiff suffered a confirmed subarachnoid hemorrhage, concussion, traumatic brain injury (TBI), facial stitches, 3 broken ribs, and a broken tooth.
  5. The plaintiff initially sought $1.7 million in damages.

Key Difference-Makers in Action

  1. Mr. Randolph conducted a methodical cross-examination of Plaintiff in which he got her to admit that she did not know what caused her fall.
  2. Mr. Romanez pulled apart the medical experts testimony and unraveled all of the medical evidence to show a different story about her claimed injuries.
  3. Mrs. Aroca gave a closing argument unwinding all of Plaintiff's arguments and convincing the jury that the code violations were a red herring and showing contrary evidence about her TBI claims.

Case Reaches Pivotal Moment

  1. We obtained the right experts and brought in an experience neurosurgeon.
  2. The team secured expert testimony and meticulously analyzed store video footage to challenge the plaintiff's version of events.

Unparalleled Determined Defense Pays Off

  1. The jury found the plaintiff 85% liable, the QPWB client 10% liable, and the co-defendant 5% liable.
  2. After comparative fault, the client's responsibility amounted to $1,700, significantly less than the initial claim of $1.7 million.

Predicting the Future

  1. This victory not only establishes a significant precedent but also serves to refine the parameters of red herring allegations for upcoming clients represented by QPWB.
  2. We fearlessly excel in delivering tailored, strategic legal representation, instilling unwavering confidence in prospective clients seeking effective advocacy and favorable resolutions, a commitment we steadfastly uphold as Difference-Makers for our past, present, and future clients.
