Injury Case Results

In the course of my practice and experience on both sides of injury cases, I’ve investigated, evaluated, litigated, tried to a jury and settled hundreds of cases, a few of which are summarized below.

TRUCK CRASHES and WRONGFUL DEATH  |  WORKERS’ COMPENSATION CLAIMS  |  PERSONAL INJURY and CAR ACCIDENTS

1. A tractor-trailer struck and killed a 29-year old man in Illinois. On behalf of the insurance carrier, I investigated and evaluated the case, calculated damages and worked with a team of experts (economist and accident reconstructionist) and negotiated during mediation. The case was eventually resolved after mediation for over $10 million dollars.

2. A tractor trailer backing into a driveway struck a motorcyclist, causing a significant brain injury and body part amputation. I worked on behalf of the insurance carrier to investigate the crash, determine fault and calculate damages. Our team included an accident reconstructionist, a visibility expert and an economist. We were able to resolve the case at mediation.

3. I worked on behalf of an injured client who was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer at relatively low speed. The client sustained lost wages and medical bills. The case settled at mediation in Federal Court for 5 times our client’s medical bills.

I was hurt at work. What should I do?

I have investigated, negotiated and tried hundreds of Missouri Workers’ Compensation claims and cases involving injuries including:

  1. Back and neck injuries and surgeries;
  2. Carpal tunnel and other repetitive trauma injuries;
  3. Shoulder injuries, including rotator cuff tears, labral tears;
  4. Head injuries, concussions and and psychological injuries;
  5. Leg, ankle and foot injuries;
  6. Both permanent partial and permanent total disability cases.

 

Cases are most often resolved before trial but sometimes require an attorney willing to move past a lowball settlement offer and try the case with a Missouri Administrative Law Judge. Specific case examples:

  1. Favorably tried a case to St. Louis Administrative Law Judge for a client who suffered a debilitating low back injury (cauda equina) after falling down at work.
  2. Negotiated a significant settlement for a client injured when powdered chemicals became airborne and caused eye injury.
  3. Obtained favorable testimony from a treating physician to link a client’s low back disc injury to his work activity, not from a pre-existing condition as contended by his insurance carrier.
  4. Negotiated hundreds of Compromise Settlements for clients in Missouri workers’ compensation cases.

I was hurt at work. What should I do?

  1. Six-figure settlement for an employee of an electrical company who was injured when he was given faulty diagrams which led to severe injury.
  2. 10x Medical Bills settlement on behalf of a client who was hit by a drunk driver.
  3. Six-figure policy limits settlement for a child hit by a car.
  4. Six figure settlement for family whose brother died as a result of medical negligence.
  5. Six figure settlement for nursing home negligence.
  6. Six figure settlement for boating injury.
