Then you are choosing a personal injury attorney to work on your case, there are some important things to consider. You want to make sure that the firm has resources that they can pull from when they are working on your case. If they don’t have any knowledge or access to information about the practice area that you are dealing with, then that firm is more than likely not reliable. Thankfully, Meyerkord & Kurth have databases which they can use to access even more information about many of the practice areas that they handle.

Attorney Stephen F. Meyerkord obtained the Award of Honor in 2009 because of his inventive and creative legal representation. He has also been elected the President of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys because others respect his legal professionalism so highly. He has also been the President of the Lawyer’s Association of St. Louis.
Attorney Meyerkord has also served on the Missouri Bar Board of Governors and he has been asked to speak at over 100 legal seminars because he is so honored. In fact, Attorney Meyerkord is specifically honored because he took the lead in a case to modernize Missouri law. Back in the 1990’s, he began to notice that the state laws in Missouri were slightly outdated. He noticed that Missouri did not have a “lost chance of survival law” regarding medical malpractice.
This is a statute which declares that if a hospital fails to properly diagnose a patient in a way that causes that patient to fall even more ill or eventually pass away, then that hospital should be held responsible. Mr. Meyerkord was able to take this concern to the Supreme Court of Missouri and eventually the court acknowledged that there was a need to write in this clause.
