Missouri Dram Shop Cases (Injured by Drunk Drivers)

We have successfully represented people who have been injured and/or killed against persons/companies licensed to sell intoxicating liquor by the drink for consumption on premises. This includes cases we have successfully handled and recovered money for people injured by sellers who knew or should have known that they were serving and/or selling intoxicating liquor to a person under the age of 21 years. We have also successfully recovered money for people who have been injured by businesses that have served intoxicating liquor to a visibly intoxicated person. Under Missouri law, a person is visibly intoxicated when inebriated to such an extent that the impairment is shown by significantly uncoordinated physical action or significant physical dysfunction.

If you or a loved one have been injured by a drunk driver, please call Attorney David Hughes at 314-241-4477.

NURSING HOME ABUSE STATISTICS

Statistics reflecting incidents of abuse involving elderly residents in nursing homes and care facilities in Missouri and throughout the United States are both staggering and disheartening.  More than 2 million cases of elder abuse are reported annually, and almost one out of every ten elderly individuals will experience some form of elder abuse.  Additionally, the overwhelming majority of elder abuse incidents remain unreported.

When nursing homes assume their responsibility of caring for an elderly individual, a trust relationship is created by the facility and the elderly person and his or her family members. When that trust relationship is broken, the elderly individual and his or her family members may have a right to file a lawsuit against the nursing facility to recover damages for injuries.  Nursing home care facilities owe both the elderly individual and their family members a duty of care, and if said duty is breached by way of negligence or perhaps criminal intent, ensuing damages can be sought against the nursing home facility.

We have successfully handled nursing home cases throughout the state of Missouri.  If you or a family member has been injured or died as the result of nursing home neglect, please call me at 314-241-4477. David G. Hughes, Attorney at Law.
