Gary Roberts & Associates, P.A.
Ocala Jury Awards $1,000,000 and Judge Adds an Additional $500,000 for Gary Roberts & Associates', P.A. Clients.
JUNE, 2013 - Our husband and wife clients were stopped on an Ocala road in their car when they were rear-ended by a drunk driver who had only $100,000 in insurance coverage for each claim. After two weeks of trial, the jury award included $500,000 in punitive damages.
Post-trial, on our motion, the trial judge increased our client’s total award to $1,464,319.63. Damages included back surgery for each client and implantation of a morphine pump for the husband. Neither client was working at the time of the crash and the husband was recovering from a prior worker’s compensation (on the job) injury.
First Multi-Million Dollar Award of 2013
JANUARY, 2013 - Our client, a 38 year old, Hillsborough, FL, single, woman underwent 6 surgeries on her spine in nine weeks in early 2007. Five of those surgeries were unnecessary. Later, she required a three level fusion with instrumentation placed in her spine. She then had surgery to implant a spinal cord stimulator to reduce her intractable pain.
We are proud to have helped her win a significant award of $2 mlliion. `
