Attorneys Michael D. Marrese and John M. Phillips of Morgan & Morgan Recover $939,276.78 Verdict for Woman Injured in Car Accident

(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 05, 2010 ) Jacksonville, FL - Morgan and Morgan trial attorneys Michael D. Marrese and John M. Phillips have recovered a $939,276.78 verdict on behalf of their client, a woman who was injured in an auto accident. As a result of these injuries, she has had to undergo extensive medical treatment and will need medication for the rest of her life.

On August 13, 2008, a 31-year-old mother of two was rear-ended at a stop light on Atlantic Boulevard in Jacksonville, Florida. The next day, she sought treatment from her primary care doctor, as well as chiropractic treatment and pain pain management care from PhysicianÂ’s Group. In April 2009, she had a two level percutaneous laser microdiscectomy performed on her lower back in Tampa, Florida. She continued to treat with PhysicianÂ’s Group for Piriformis Syndrome, a painful condition that affects her left hip. She has had between 12 to 15 pain injections in her back and hip and will require pain medications for life. A jury in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida awarded her $939,276.78 in damages.

This case was tried by attorneys Michael D. Marrese and John M. Phillips of Morgan and Morgan.

Six hunters in the Democratic Republic of Congo who fell sick and were suspected to have Ebola have tested negative for the virus, the health minister said on Saturday.

4 Jul 2015 at 5:42am
By Joseph Akwiri MOMBASA (Reuters) - East Africa's biggest port in the Kenyan city of Mombasa said on Saturday it had dismissed 27 workers it believed were behind a strike this week that paralysed operations for two days and cost the port at least $2 million. Over 2,000 workers went on strike on Wednesday and Thursday in protest against higher deductions for the government's national health insurance scheme, prompting port management to threaten to fire them, having advertised their positions. The work stoppage has disrupted business at the biggest port in the region, which handles imports such as fuel for Uganda, Burundi, Rwanda, South Sudan, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and Somalia.
