Lear Werts successfully represented a mid-Missouri man that was badly injured in a car crash when his co-worker, who was driving the vehicle, fell asleep at the wheel. The crash occurred on the interstate and resulted in a violent collision into the rear of a tractor-trailer. The injured passenger suffered severe injuries to his head, face, jaw, and teeth. Extensive medical care and treatment over a lengthy period was required. As a result of the crash, the injured worker will have to wear dental implants and dentures for the rest of his life. The attorneys at Lear Werts were able to first negotiate a settlement of the workers’ compensation case and then pursued a case against the co-worker for his careless driving. Lear Werts was able to fight off a vigorous defense and obtained a favorable decision from the Judge overseeing the case when the co-worker requested that the case be thrown out. As a result, Lear Werts was able to obtain an additional settlement from the co-worker’s insurance company at a mediation.
