Car accidents are among the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration – and the No. 1 cause for people ages 8 to 24. Despite our best efforts to drive safely, all of us share the roads with individuals who may speed, text or simply drive carelessly.
Our firm helps car accident victims and their families get accountability and answers. Examples of our recent work for car accident victims:
- We obtained a $250,000 insurance settlement, the maximum recoverable amount, for the family of a motorcyclist who was killed after a violent motor vehicle collision.
- We secured a $2.285 million verdict in arbitration for a family who struck a faulty guardrail. Industry standards required a full guardrail height of 27 inches; Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader demonstrated the guardrail was only 18 inches.
- We achieved a $1.5 million settlement for a woman whose car was struck by a Gulf Stream RV. Neither driver was cited, but an investigator analyzed tire marks, accident debris and vehicle damage, and concluded the collision happened when the RV crossed into our client’s lane.
Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader has considerable experience in cases that involve allegations of impaired driving:
- We recently secured a $4.9 million settlement for a client who was struck by a drunk driver going the wrong way on the interstate. The defendant driver had a blood-alcohol content of 0.386 – almost five times the legal limit – when the collision occurred.
- We also achieved a $2.5 million settlement for victims of a drunk driving accident in Morgan County, Missouri. This matter involved alleged negligence on behalf of both the driver and the driver’s mother, who allowed him access to the vehicle despite a lengthy history of driving while intoxicated.
