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.

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.

In January, 2015, I resolved an automobile accident claim for the negligent driver’s $100,000.00 policy limits. Our client suffered numerous sprain and strain injuries and also suffered a torn rotator cuff requiring shoulder surgery as a result of the accident. After months of negotiation, the negligent driver’s insurance company offered the $100,000.00 policy limits, and I am now pursuing our client’s underinsured motorist coverage in an effort to obtain additional damages on her behalf.
I also recently settled another automobile accident claim this month for the negligent driver’s $50,000.00 policy limits. Our client suffered an injury to her hip requiring surgery and missed many days from work as a result of her injuries and ultimate hip surgery. I am now pursuing an underinsured motorist claim on behalf of our client in an effort to obtain additional damages on her behalf for medical bills, lost wages, past, present and future suffering, and potential for future medical care.
