Fort Lauderdale, Florida — June 21, 2010, On November 20, 2007, Ronnie Green was driving his motor vehicle on I-95 in Broward County, Florida when he was struck from behind by a rental car being transported by Alex’s Transport, Inc. and driven by employee Rupert Mantilla. Ronnie was struck so hard that he suffered a herniated disc in his low back, which required surgical decompressive lumbar laminectomy, diskectomy and interbody fusion with a “Peek Cage”, infused bone graft and pedicle screw instrumentation.
 
“Overall, this was a good result for our client,” said Lawlor Winston, LLP Partner Anthony B. White. “We were fairly early on in the litigation process, and the defendant’s Insurance Carrier made a business decision to avoid facing a Broward County jury,” said White.…

In July, 2006, Harlan Ginsberg presented to the ER at Northwest Medical Center in Margate, Florida for a kidney stone. The hospital called in urologists Jason Perelman, MD and Mitchell Weinstein, DO, of Uro-Medix, Inc. to consult. The doctors attempted to remove Ginsberg’s kidney stone using a routine cystoscopic procedure, during which his ureter was torn. After surgical attempts to repair the ureter, Ginsberg’s kidney was ultimately removed.
 
After nearly four years of litigation, Ginsberg will get his day in Court in a lawsuit he brought against Northwest Medical Center, Jason Perelman, MD, Mitchell Weinstein, DO and Uro-Medix, Inc. His case is specially set to begin trial before Judge Kathleen O’Connor in Broward County, Florida Circuit Court on August 9, 2010.…
