$2 million settlement - Mr. Weinstein was retained by the divorced, grieving father of an unmarried adult child who had recently died in an auto accident in Tampa, Florida.

The negligent driver whose small truck struck the young man’s car owned a small lawn maintenance company that had two million dollars in automobile and trailer insurance. Mr. Weinstein had the father appointed personal representative of the estate, worked with the attorneys for the insurance companies and mother / ex-wife, and reached an agreed settlement fair to all for the full amount of the insurance proceeds – $2 million.
$2.0 million settlement - For the minor Frank Delgado and his parents. Frank suffered brain damage at birth due to a failure to diagnose and prepare for breech presentation during pregnancy. Frank was noted in vertical position according to the OB/GYN records. However, two sonograms done during the pregnancy showed Frank in breech presentation. The appropriate medical practice is to perform a caesarian section if the baby is in breech presentation at 39 weeks gestation. The failure to perform a caesarian section caused a single footling breech birth with cord prolapse. The cord prolapse caused interruption of blood flow with resulting brain damage to the baby. The treatment occurred in a federal low cost health clinic. As a result, the claim had to be brought under the Federal Tort Claims Act against the United States. After a lawsuit was filed, depositions were taken and just prior to trial, the case was resolved for $2,000,000 in April 2013.
