I recently recovered $250,000.00 in underinsured motorist coverage for my client’s injuries and damages arising out of a 2018 automobile accident that had been settled for the liable party’s $100,000.00 policy limits. The underinsured motorist insurance carrier initially offered nothing to its insured, but during litigation as the case got close to trial, the insurance company offered the $250,000.00 policy limits.
If you or anyone that you know has a potential automobile accident liability case and/or an underinsurance motorist case, please call me, Attorney David Hughes, at 314-241-4477.
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.
Pedestrian deaths in the United States reached a 30 year high in 2018, as an estimated 6,227 people died on foot from car crashes nationwide last year. Pedestrian deaths account for about 16% of motor vehicle crash deaths. Many of the deaths are due to the growing shift away from passenger vehicles to sport utility vehicles and light trucks, which generally cause greater injury to pedestrians than cars at the same speed. The number of pedestrian deaths involving sport utility vehicles has grown by 50% from 2013 to 2017, compared with a 30% increase for passenger cars. Also, distractions caused by smart phones are a growing concern causing pedestrian deaths.
