$3,820,000 Verdict: Hospital (Medical) Malpractice
A female client, K.L. suffered a stroke that resulted in a traumatic brain injury and hemiplegia after the femal codefendant nurse removed K.L.'s intravenous line at the hospital where she was a patient. K.L. contended that the medical center failed to properly hire, train, and supervise its medical staff, and failed to provide the proper standard of care. The client's suit claimed that she suffered a stroke and brain damage when the removal of the line caused an air embolism, leaving her with left-side paralysis and cognitive problems that require 24-hour care from her husband. The outcome was a verdict for K.L., who was awarded $3,820,000.

$1,000,000 Settlement: Slip and Fall
Our client was at a national drug store chain in December, 2009. She was headed to the check-out counter when she slipped and fell in water. An ambulance came and took her to the emergency room of an area hospital. Our client suffered a broken hip and had to have a hip replacement; during surgery, she suffered a stroke. Our client received a settlement for $1,000,000.
$500,000 Verdict: Auto Accident
Our client was the parent of a young child that was a restrained backseat passenger in her parent's car. The vehicle she occupied was rear-ended at a high rate of speed causing significant damage to the child, even though she occupied a car seat at the time.
Unfortunately, the injuries sustained by the child are permanent as the result of the car crash. Burnetti, P.A. battled those responsible and obtained compensation for the client through a jury verdict in the amount of $503,611.33.
$500,000 Verdict: Personal Injury
A nurse injured at a local Walmart was never offered more than $1,000 by Walmart. Walmart stated they always win these types of cases and even if we won, the jury would not award the client over $10,000. The attorney believed in his client and invested significant time and money into her case. The jury awarded the client over $500,000, which tripled the highest soft tissue verdict ever received in Polk County, Florida.
$500,000 Verdict: Slip and Fall
