Truck Crashes and Wrongful Death

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.

Workers Compensation Claims

I have investigated, negotiated and tried hundreds of Missouri Workers' Compensation claims and cases involving injuries including back/neck strains, broken body parts, shoulder injuries, head injuries and psychological injuries.  Cases are usually 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.
