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.

I recently resolved a personal injury case for $530,000. The case involved injury to our client which was caused by his co-employees who were working on a construction site and caused a 25 pound piece of concrete to fall striking our client on his back. Our client suffered a back fracture which required a brace and also due to his injuries, missed approximately one year of work. The lawsuit was filed in St. Louis City Circuit Court and the Defendant’s made no offer on the case until I defeated the Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment. In their Motion, the Defendant’s asked the Circuit Court Judge to throw the case out of court arguing that his co-employees did not have any duty or responsibility to our client, therefore, our client should not be permitted to move forward with this case. After defeating the Motion for Summary Judgment and approximately one month before trial, Mr. Hughes was able to settle the case for $530,000.
Also, recently I filed suit in the Federal Court in Missouri alleging that one of our clients suffered significant life altering permanent injuries as a result of a job site accident that involved the use of a scissors lift which tipped over while my client was in the course and scope of his employment. We alleged in the complaint that the scissors lift was a defective product and as a result of said defective condition, our client suffered severe head and body injuries.
I also filed suit recently, in the Federal Court of Missouri due to a tractor trailer accident which led to the death of our client’s husband. Our client’s husband had been in the sleeper compartment of a tractor trailer when the operator of the tractor trailer drove it off the road, colliding with another tractor trailer and numerous other tractor trailers. As a result, my client’s husband suffered severe critical injuries and after struggling to hold onto his life, he died within hours of the collision.
I also recently filed a suit in St. Louis County Circuit Court after one of my clients was injured while working on a deck approximately 12-15 feet in the air when he suddenly and unexpectedly fell through the deck, landing on his spine. As a result of the fall, my client suffered fractures to his spine which resulted paraplegia and significant past and future medical expenses for our clients ongoing medical needs.
