Attorney Brian Kurth recently settled an auto accident case for $150,000 involving a head-on collision with a driver for a local florist. The accident occurred in the Metro East area of St. Louis when the driver of a Ford Cargo Van entered the victim’s lane of traffic. The collision occurred at a high-rate of speed resulting in significant damages. Fortunately, the victim hired the successful law firm of Meyerkord & Kurth to represent her.
The client went to the emergency room complaining of pain in her right knee, neck and left shoulder. X-rays were normal. A diagnosis of a cervical strain followed with a prescription for pain medication and a muscle relaxer. She continued to experience discomfort and pain in her shoulder. The client’s primary doctor ordered an MRI and the results were normal. She was treated with physical therapy but continued to have issues. Attorney Kurth referred her to a doctor that diagnosed her with a type of tear in her labrum that does not show up on an MRI. The doctor performed arthroscopic surgery on her left shoulder. The client made a full recovery after suffering from pain and not knowing what was wrong with her shoulder for over a year and a half.
