St. Louis Car Accident Case Settled for $800,000

Share this post:

I recently settled a St. Louis County Circuit Court automobile accident case for $800,000.00.  After 2 ½ years of litigation and numerous depositions of fact and expert witnesses, the case was resolved on the first day of trial after various Motions were presented and ruled upon by the trial Judge.  My client’s vehicle was struck by another vehicle while stopped in traffic on Highway 270 in St Louis County. The Plaintiff suffered a broken pelvis and post-traumatic stress disorder.  As a result of the injuries related to the car accident, she lost the job she loved as a nurse and was unable to return to nursing.  While many defense attorneys and insurance companies often argue that St. Louis County Circuit Court is a “conservative venue”, our client was extremely happy with the hard work of her attorney and the ultimate outcome.
