103 S.W.3d 266 (Mo. App. ED)

A young mother suffered a hip fracture in a head-on collision with a dump truck after she swerved into the on coming lane to avoid a trash truck that was stopped in the her lane just beyond a blind curve. The Plaintiff had less than $20,000 in past medical bills and we presented a strong case yet the jury trial awarded our client $1,250,000.00. This award was reduced by plaintiff’s 25% comparative fault. The verdict was affirmed on appeal.
