$7.2 Million Defense Verdict in Contentious Wrongful Death Suit for Hospital

Represented a hospital in a case that spanned seven years, following the death of a 78-year-old man who fell while walking into a procedure facility. He struck his head in the fall and later died of his injuries. The plaintiffs alleged that one of the concrete slabs in the walkway leading to the entrance was uneven and caused him to fall. Following a six-day trial in St. Louis County Circuit Court, the jury found in favor of our client. The case earned the number three spot on the list of 2017 top verdicts, as ranked by Missouri Lawyers Weekly.
