ST. LOUIS, Dec. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On September 25, 2011, an innocent bystander lost her leg when she was struck during a high-speed St. Louis City police pursuit.
On December 16 of this year, Attorney John Steward, of counsel with Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC, along with his co-counsel, Attorneys Daniel T. Ryan and Cyrus Dashtaki, obtained a $2,500,000.00 jury verdict against the City of St. Louis Board of Police Commissioners.
Sources state that this is one of the first cases of its kind to reach trial. Many of these cases have been dismissed before reaching trial due to the complexities in establishing proximate cause.
The team of lawyers was able to successfully argue that the plaintiff's case was proper for trial by jury. Attorney Steward, Attorney Ryan, and Attorney Dashtaki conducted years of discovery to obtain the facts necessary to move the case to trial.
This multi-million dollar verdict indicates the team's dedication to the case and the innovative legal strategies used to fight for the rights of the seriously injured.
