I recently recovered $75,000.00 for an individual injured in an automobile accident in the City of St. Louis. Our client suffered a shoulder injury. The insurance company offered $45,000.00 prior to filing suit, and during litigation, I was able to obtain $75,000.00 for resolution of the case.
I also recently resolved a case against a boat rental company. Our client was injured when the boat seat that he was using collapsed, causing injury to his left ankle. I was able to recover $90,000.00 for our client’s damages.

INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY Reed v. Colvin, 779 F.3d 725 (8th Cir. 2015) At issue is whether the plaintiff meets or equals the criteria of Listing section 12.05C. IQ testing in 2007 revealed verbal IQ of 68, performance IQ of 67, and full-scale IQ of 65; the psychologist diagnosed mild mental retardation. This psychologist reevaluated the plaintiff in 2010, and offered comments suggesting that she presented higher than her scores would indicate and that her ability to recall numbers was in the normal range and thus in conflict with her 2007 IQ scores. The court here remands for development of the record on the validity of the 2007 IQ scores. “We disagree with the Commissioner’s contentions on appeal that a comment in Dr. Hobby’s 2007 report showed he suspected malingering then, that the ALJ found Reed’s daily activities inconsistent with a disabling intellectual level, and that Reed’s testimony concerning playing the piano and helping care for her sister’s children was inconsistent with her 2007 IQ scores. Reed’s complete testimony regarding her daily activities, coupled with her reports to Dr. Hobby about her limited activities, is consistent with someone whose IQ scores are those reflected in the 2007 testing.” See Lott v. Colvin, 772 F.3d 546 (8th Cir. 2014), and Bailey v. Apfel, 230 F.3d 1063 (8th Cir. 2000).
