wrongful death settlement for a construction accident involving hydrogen sulfide poisoning, confined space and OSHA violations. Martinez v. Florida Power & Light Co., Miami-Dade County Circuit Court, case number 04-2817 CA 21. Florida Power & Light Co. (FP&L) owns and is responsible for maintaining the manholes into which it runs cable. That includes the manhole at 18th Street and Bay Road in Miami Beach, Florida. On October 10, 2002, employees of a subcontractor of Florida Power & Light Co. went into the manhole not realizing that the manhole was filled with hydrogen sulfide gas. At high levels of concentration, the gas numbs the olfactory nerves that allow us to have the sense of smell, and the hydrogen sulfide becomes undetectable without gas detection equipment. The men apparently failed to use gas detectors or other required safety equipment. FP&L also failed to provide these men with the safety training and the information on the incidence of hydrogen sulfide in manholes in Miami Beach, which FP&L provides its own employees. FP&L utilizes the same subcontractor on a regular basis. One of the men on the job went into the manhole. The supervisor (and person in charge of safety on the job), Osvaldo Martinez, went down to rescue his buddy. Both of them died in the manhole. The estate of the decedent Martinez recovered $600,000, even though Martinez was the supervisor on the job. FP&L had a duty to the employees of its contractors to keep the workplace safe.

verdict in car crash "survivor action." Miami, FL-  John H. (Jack) Hickey and Bjorg Eikeland, trial lawyers with Hickey Law Firm in Miami, FL, received a $4.5 Million jury verdict on behalf of their client, the personal representative of the Estate of Maria Deposada. The verdict was reached in Miami-Dade County Florida Circuit Court last Friday night, September 16, 2016.  This verdict is completely supported by the overwhelming objective and subjective evidence in the record.   This case arose out of a car crash.  It happened on July 8, 2008.  An intern for Pernod Ricard, USA LLC, a subsidiary of Pernod Ricard (Pernod), the multinational liquor conglomerate, drove a Ford Taurus leased by Pernod and ran a red light in midtown Miami.  The Ford crashed broadside into another car, a 3 series BMW, in which 89 year old Maria Deposada was a front seat passenger.
