Our client was a truck driver who was injured when a defective top bunk latch gave way causing the bunk to fall and hit him in the head causing a ruptured disc. We took numerous depositions, hired experts, and prepared the case for trial.
We were able to show that the latch was defective and that the manufacturer of the truck had a history of failure of the latch. The manufacturer settled the case before trial and agreed to pay $165,000 for the injuries. If you’ve been in a similar circumstance, the time to act is now. There is a statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Missouri and you could run the risk of passing it without taking action soon.
