Our client was injured in a motor vehicle crash in Cape Girardeau, Missouri on Kingshighway that involved an O’Reilly Auto Parts truck. Our client suffered a back injury in the crash and ended up having a lumbar fusion because of her injuries. We filed a personal injury lawsuit in Cape Girardeau against O’Reilly Auto Parts and its employee for negligence. The O’Reilly employee was driving too fast for conditions, lost control over the truck, swerved into oncoming traffic and T-boned the driver’s side of our client’s car. In discovery, we learned that the O’Reilly employee had a bad driving history of speeding and her license was suspended prior to being hired by O’Reilly. We filed for punitive damages after we learned these facts. We hired truck safety fleet driving experts to review the hiring process of O’Reilly and testify against them. Plaintiff’s treating doctor testified to her injuries and the future care needed. We mediated the case against the defendants and they agreed to pay $1,475,000 to settle the case.
We filed suit against a corporation for negligent training of its employees. One of the corporation’s employees assaulted our client which resulted in significant injuries to the client. We hired a security expert to discuss the negligence of the employee and testify against the corporation. We set the case for trial in front of a jury and gave the insurance company a final demand. The insurance company for the corporation paid our demand a few weeks before trial was set to begin. We stayed aggressive in the case and pushed for trial. We showed the insurance company that we were prepared to take the case all of the way.

We sued a local hospital and Emergency department doctor for negligence and deviation from the standard of care when the facility and doctor failed to treat a cyst on our client’s foot that ultimately led to her foot being amputated as a result of them not treating her cyst. The client reported her symptoms to the hospital and doctor and they were ignored. We sued the hospital and doctor for negligence because they failed to care and take the time with the patient necessary to get the treatment right. If that would have been done, the infection could have been treated and our client would have kept her foot.

We filed suit against the insurance company demanding the $300,000 policy of the negligent driver. After years of litigation the insurance company settled with us for the $300,000 we demanded.

Our client slipped and fell and hurt her knees as a result of the fall. We filed suit and the insurance company for the grocery store settled with us for full and fair compensation. We also requested that the policies change so this never happens again.
