$25,000.00 Verdict in St. Louis County with $32,000 in Medical Bills.


In March 2006, a St. Louis County jury awarded a 72 year old woman $25,000.00 as a result of an accident which occurred on I-270 involving a tractor-trailer. The trucking company admitted liability, but contested damages. The plaintiff alleged that she sustained fractured ribs, soft tissue knee injuries, including a torn medial meniscus. Her medical specials were approximately $32,000.00. There was no claim for wage loss. Prior to trial the demand was $75,000.00. The defendants offered $50,000.00. St. Louis County is considered a very conservative jurisdiction and should not be confused with the City of St. Louis.
