Wrongful Death Case Settles for $2.5 Million Dollars

Posted on Jan 14, 2010

Attorneys Rodolfo Linares and Co-counsel J.P. Gonzalez-Sirgo of Coral Gables, Florida, who was contracted to serve as insurance bad faith claims counsel, recovered $2,500,000.00 in a wrongful death case wherein we represented a 19 year old young man who was killed as he rode his bicycle home from work late at night when he was rear ended by a drunk driver.  Our client worked as a dishwasher earning a small wage.  He was not a legal resident of the United States.  He was not married and did not have any kids.  He was survived by his parents and siblings who lived in their home country.  The facts supporting liability in this case were aggravated in that the driver of the auto that struck our client also attempted to flee the scene of the accident. 

Attorney J.P. Gonzalez-Sirgo has built his entire career on protecting the rights of insurance policyholders, personal injury and wrongful death victims and fighting for the rights of Florida consumers and small businesses.  The firm has recovered millions of dollars for victims of denied or underpaid insurance claims, victims of catastrophic personal injuries and wrongful death and on behalf of those that have been taken advantage of by Big Business and Big Insurance.  J.P. has been certified as a life member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. The Million Dollar Advocates Forum is recognized as one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States.
