In December 2016, I recovered $650,000.00 for a woman injured in a premises liability case. In January 2017, I recovered insurance policy limits of $500,000.00 for a woman who suffered back and shoulder injuries when she was struck by a car while riding her motor scooter in St. Louis County. Also in January, 2017, I recovered $250,000.00 for a man struck by an uninsured motorist while operating his riding lawn mower. My client suffered a fractured leg that required surgery.

State’s Workers’ Compensation rates should drop for the third year in a row, however that will not prevent the Partisan attack on Missouri’s Workers Compensation laws in the 2017 session.
Missouri employers should expect to see a continued decrease in Workers’ Compensation rates for 2017.
Governor Jay Nixon recently announced progress in Workers’ Comp insurance costs. The Missouri Department of Insurance is recommending a 4.6 percent decrease in Workers’ Comp insurance loss costs next year. That would translate into the third year in a row of decreases in such costs to businesses, with rates sliding down by 9.8 percent over that period.
Out of the state’s 337 active workers’ comp insurers jockeying for business, a total of 225 insurers filed rate decreases this year, with an average decrease of 2.9 percent.
Johnson and Johnson is facing about 1,200 law suits claiming studies have linked its Johnson’s Baby Powder and its Shower-to-Shower product to ovarian cancer.
This week jurors in St. Louis awarded the family of Jackie Fox, who died of ovarian cancer last year after using Johnson’s baby powder and another talc-based product for years, $10 million in compensatory damages and $62 million in a punishment award. This is the first case in which a jury has awarded damages over Johnson & Johnson’s talc products.
