$23 Million Verdict Awarded to Husband and Wife for Injuries Sustained at Work

Attorneys Eric S. Rosen, Michael A. Hersh, and Kimberly L. Wald of Kelley/Uustal represented Efrain Alamo-Cruz and his wife, Maria Alamo, in a case that received a victory in excess of $23 million, which was handed down by a Broward County Jury. In the suit, the plaintiffs alleged that Affordable Treemen, Inc. and Robin Croce’s negligence caused Alamo-Cruz, a tree trimmer, to fall while on the job, sustaining permanent and severe injuries.

The attorneys from Kelley/Uustal presented evidence of Efrain’s orthopedic injuries and traumatic brain injury, which were caused by the fall, supported by testimonies from several medical doctors. In addition to these powerful medical testimonies, they called upon witnesses who testified to the effects his injuries had on him and his wife, explaining the strain it put on their marriage. Efrain is now unable to work due to the injuries he suffered and continues to endure severe pain on a daily basis.

The jury’s verdict signifies recognition of the impact Efrain’s injuries have had on his life and marriage as well as the future challenges the couple will continue to face. While the award will not undo the damage, it can help them face those challenges and, hopefully, contribute to a better life.
