K|U Attorneys Litigate Injury Lawsuit Involving Florida Hockey Star

Our firm recently filed a lawsuit against the wife of a retired hockey player on behalf of Jessica Provost, who was hit by a car while walking in her neighborhood.

Provost, 52, was walking past the home of former Florida Panthers player, Roberto Luongo, when she had to step off the sidewalk and onto the street due to an extensive construction project going on at the house. Ms. Provost was struck by a car coming down the street, and suffered several injuries, including internal bleeding in her brain and fractures in her hip, femur, forearm, several ribs, and her spine.

Although Robert Luongo and his wife, Gina, both live at the Parkland home where the accident took place, the property is only registered under Mrs. Luongo. The lawsuit, filed on January 9, 2020 by Kelley | Uustal attorney Catherine Darlson, names Gina Luongo and the construction company, Terence Cudmore Builder, Inc.

Darlson told DBR that this type of case is unfortunately very common in areas where construction is taking place, due to many contractors failing to adhere to safety regulations in order to get work done faster and cheaper. “Those are always the cases we see where somebody totally innocent ends up hurt,” Darlson said.
