      Employee Gets Drunk At Company Party and Causes Horrendous Crash

      A drunk driver slams into the back of an SUV at almost 100 miles per hour. The drunk was under age but had been given free alcohol at a company party that evening. In the SUV are five friends who were on their way home from a night out and they had a sober driver. Geoff took over after the original lawyer settled the “dramshop” part of the case. A dramshop case is made against a bar which wrongfully serves alcohol to a customer. Geoff then aimed the case against the company which threw the party and settled the case right before trial for $2,000,000.00.

      Lake of the Ozarks Boat Crash Settlement

      Our law firm stood up for two boat passengers after an intoxicated boat driver wrecked a boat and tried to blame one of his passengers. Both of the passengers were thrown from the front seats of the boat when the boat hit a floating concrete wave barrier called a “wave break” at night. Both passengers landed on the wave break and hit their heads, causing traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and many broken bones and other injuries. The insurance company for the boat driver offered zero dollars until Geoff and his team prepared the case for trial. Just a few weeks before the trial the insurance company changed its mind and paid a total settlement of $1,800,000.00.

      Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) After Fall Recovery

      Geoff Meyerkord recovered compensation for a lovely woman who fell down steps while visiting her daughter. Our client fell after stepping through a doorway exiting a church gym. A handrail was missing and a door stopper was sticking up on the top step, creating a trip hazard. When our client stepped out of the gymnasium door, her foot hit the door stopper and she lost her balance. Because there was no handrail to grab, she fell down four steps onto the pavement below, striking her head and causing a brain bleed. This case required a lawsuit when the church tried to cover-up it’s knowledge of the missing handrail. Geoff’s significant work-up of the case produced a settlement weeks before trial of $1,300,000.00.

      Joy-Ride Turns Fatal

      Geoff was hired to represent a 15-year-old girl who was riding in the back seat of a car driven by a 16-year-old friend. The boy who was driving borrowed his grandparent’s car and took his friends for a joy-ride on a country road near his grandparent’s farm. The driver went too fast over a hill, causing a terrible crash. Geoff was able to recover every penny of the $1,000,000.00 insurance policy at a mediation session for his client.

      Major Car Accident Recovery Involving Family

      Geoff was honored to represent a father and two sons who suffered terrible leg injuries when a pick-up truck swerved into their lane and hit their Jeep. Geoff discovered three separate insurance policies covering the claim and convinced each insurance company to pay every penny of each policy. Geoff’s team produced a compelling video to tell the story of the case, with interviews and animation and clips from the 911 calls. The movie was critical to showing how the crash happened and how a wonderful family was harmed by a dangerous driver who broke the rules.

      Motorcycle Passenger Suffers Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) When Driver Loses Control

      After spending the afternoon in the wine country near Augusta, Missouri with friends, a motorcycle driver offers to take a female friend for a ride on his bike. After the driver says he is sober and because she did not see him drink, our client got on the back of the motorcycle and put on his extra helmet. Soon after, our client was thrown from the bike when the driver misses a curve. The helmet saves the woman’s life but she gets a brain injury when from a coup contre coup injury, which is similar to shaken baby syndrome. The rider develops post-concussion syndrome, a terrible condition that effects 15-20% of brain injury victims. Geoff was able to recover every penny of all insurance policies, an amount which exceeded $500,000.

      Jury Verdict for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

      Our law firm was asked to represent a customer of a movie theatre who was hit in the back of the head by a door post which was unattached from the top of the door frame. As the customer was exiting the movie theater using the door on the left of the post, another customer exited using the door to the right which caught the door post and flung it forward into his head. Our client suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and developed a terrible condition called post-concussive syndrome (PCS). The movie theatre management denied they knew of the loose door post and said their customer was lying about his brain injury. The jury who heard five days of testimony returned a verdict of $312,000.00, which included $100,000.00 in punitive damages against the company for failing to act quickly to protect customers from obvious danger.

      Tray of Dishes Dropped on Restaurant Customer’s Head – Concussion Settlement

      While seated at her table waiting for their food a restaurant guest suddenly gets knocked out. A waitress had slipped on a puddle of liquid near the table and dropped a tray on the customer’s head. The customer never saw the tray coming but had told the restaurant about the liquid when they were seated. Rather than sue the waitress, Geoff sued the restaurant company because it had been warned that water was on the floor but did not remove it. The restaurant denied it knew about the water but got rid of the surveillance video which captured the incident. Lawyers for the restaurant’s insurance said their customer was faking her brain injury so a lawsuit was required. Months later $300,000 was paid as justice for our client’s concussion – finally proving to the insurance company that concussions are real brain injuries.

      Hotel Fails to Fix Pool Problem

      A grandpa takes his grandson, who is age five, to their hotel’s indoor pool. They are in town for a baseball tournament. The hotel pool was built with pool tiles which are small and slick instead of tiles which are large and textured. The pool was also built with small depressions near the edge where water accumulates. The grandpa slips on the water and fractures his hip requiring surgery. This was a tough case because pools are supposed to get wet. Geoff argued that when the hotel company combined slick tiles with bad drainage the hotel guests are put at risk. After trying to settle the case out of court, Geoff had no choice but to sue the hotel company. After depositions were taken, the hotel lawyers agreed to settle for $300,000.00 and fix the problem.

      Dog Bite Jury Verdict – Highest Ever Under New 2009 Dog Bite Statute

      A dog owner decides to take her distressed dog for a walk into the community on Halloween night after kids had been trick-or-treating at her house. The dog bites a three-year-old boy dressed as Batman while he holds his candy pumpkin and mom’s hand. The bite is to his cheek and face and leaves a noticeable scar. The dog owner blames the boy and his mom and digs in for a long fight. Geoff takes the case to trial after a top settlement offer was made by State Farm for $150,000. Geoff calls witnesses at trial including a dog behavior expert from a major university. After four days of trial the jury allows a verdict of $250,000.00, finding the dog owner’s decisions and conduct to be dangerous. Read more about this incident.

In a short three months, we were able to file suit, negotiate his medical bills down significantly, and obtain a settlement worth $241,500 on his behalf.

      Jury Serves Justice to Distracted Driver Victim

      A driver dropped his cell phone while traveling 40 miles per hour. Instead of waiting for a red light, he bent over to pick it up. Not realizing traffic ahead of him had come to a stop, the driver hits our client who was waiting at the light, not realizing that his life was about to be changed by a distracted driver. Our client was a hardworking businessman who supported his family and his employees, and had to deal with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and broken vertebrae in his neck. State Farm Insurance was given every document they asked for and valued the claim at just $17,500.00. Geoff refused to settle for such a small amount and took the case to trial. The community responded with a verdict of $200,000.00. Real justice.

      City Fails to Fix Dangerous Sidewalk

      A retired school principal goes for a walk in his neighborhood to enjoy the autumn leaves. The City of Chesterfield has big trees, whose leaves covered a four-inch vertical offset in a section of concrete sidewalk. After tripping and breaking his hip, the man hires our firm to look into the situation. This case took a turn for the better when Geoff uncovered a sidewalk inventory which the Public Work Department made of its dangerous sidewalks. The city failed to tell our firm about this until halfway through the case. Presented with damaging proof that it knew for more than a year about its dangerous sidewalks, the city and its attorney agreed to pay $200,000.00.

      Motor Vehicle Accident

      Plaintiff J.A. was driving on highway 70 in Columbia Missouri when she was struck by a speeding vehicle. Geico initially denied all responsibility for its driver, however, an independent witness statement provided evidence against Geico’s position. As reported by Attorneys Geoff Meyerkord and Tara Dimler, plaintiff J.A. received 130,000 for bodily injuries from the Columbia car crash.

      At the time of the crash, J.A. was taken by ambulance to Boone Hospital Emergency Department. She was diagnosed with a fracture of her left side rib, a cervical strain, abrasion of her left elbow, and lumbar pain. The impact was so severe, it moved her cheek out of place causing her eye to appear sunken. Attorney’s Geoff Meyerkord and Tara Dimler suggested that their client still experiences facial swelling and pain as well as PTSD and anxiety from the crash.

      Thankfully, a witness gave a statement that the Geico driver was weaving in and out of traffic when she struck J.A.’s vehicle. Further, the witness declared this car crash to be a result of Geicos driver chasing an unknown vehicle when she struck J.A.’s vehicle causing her to crash into the concrete wall. This unknown driver had caused a separate collision two miles prior to colliding with the client of Geoff Meyerkord Law Firm. Geico was forced to take responsibility and answer to the negligence of its driver’s recklessness.

      Meyerkord and Dimler insisted that Geico had a clear opportunity to resolve this claim and fully protect its insured from any exposure beyond the limits of her insurance policy during the settlement opportunity. As a result, J.A. received Geico Insurance’s full policy limit of $130,000.

      Hit & Run Involving Motorcycle
      Dave was on his motorcycle when a hit and run driver in Columbia Missouri struck his bike. All drivers really need to watch out for bikers and give them respect, and if a driver hits a biker they should stay at the scene to tell their story. Dave was left with a badly fractured leg and had surgery. No lawyer wanted his case because they all thought Dave’s insurance was too small. Dave found Geoff Meyerkord Law Firm on January 11 of 2022. We figured out that Dave had FIVE (5) car insurance policies and we fought to stack them together for uninured motorist coverage. WE WON. Bottom line – on April 11 2022, three months to the day from first texting us, we handed Dave a settlement check for $84,000 and a law firm sweatshirt. WE CARE ABOUT OUR CLIENTS AND NO - BIGGER IS NOT BETTER WHEN IT COMES TO INJURY LAW FIRMS.

      Hit & Run Settlement - Underinsured Motorist

      Three St. Louis County women were awarded a settlement totaling 450,000 after sustaining injuries in a hit and run. The key piece of evidence: a dash cam video submitted by a Good Samaritan and witness of the crash.

      Geoff Meyerkord and Tara Dimler of Geoff Meyerkord Law Firm, LC represented LaShanda Johnson, Geneva Johnson, and Henretta Marbley, who were struck by a driver of a black Chevy Challenger on June 3, 2021, at 64 Eastbound near the Oakland exit. Information regarding the black Chevy Challenger and its occupants remain unknown. The driver of the Chevy Challenger fled the scene and continued eastbound before law enforcement arrived. The roads were dry, and it was full daylight and the time of the crash.

      After the collision, the three women were taken by ambulance to Barnes Jewish Hospital. Geneva was later transferred to Mercy Hospital out of concern for blood clots. According to attorneys Geoff Meyerkord and Tara Dimler, the women suffered from injuries of the head, spine, abdominal, nasal bone, ankle, and rib.

      Meyerkord and Dimler suggest that the dash cam footage was vital in proving the severity of the crash, as it shows the Chevy Challenger crashing into Johnson’s car. The dash cam shows the driver of the Chevy Challenger operating their vehicle recklessly, exceeding the speed limit and weaving between lanes at high speed. The footage ends depicting Johnson’s vehicle obliterated in the middle of three lanes of interstate traffic.

      Meyerkord and Dimler successfully obtained full and final settlements of all claims under the clients’ Uninsured Motorist coverage with Allstate and Progressive. Geneva receives $210,000 and LaShanda receives 215,000 for their harms and injuries. In addition, Marbley received the policy limit of $25,000 from Progressive.
