bus accidentA disabled gentleman in his mid 50s suffered neck, back, and shoulder sprains after being involved in a Metro/Bi-State bus accident in the city of St Louis.  While he was riding as the sole passenger on the bus, the driver attempted to make a turn too fast on icy and slick road conditions. The bus driver lost control and, over corrected and struck 3 parked cars on the opposite side of the road, then slid back across both lanes, and finally stopped going through a fence.  The multiple collisions and wild jarring’s of the bus threw the disabled gentleman from his seat onto the floor, injuring his right shoulder and neck, and spraining his back.  Immense pain hit instantly, compounded by the fact that the disabled gentleman recently underwent surgery on his right shoulder due to a rare blood disease. The disabled man was taken to the ER, and had a series of medical treatments including follow up with his surgeon from prior shoulder surgery, and a chiropractor.  The gentleman found the Sauter Sullivan Law Firm, where Carolyn Caruthers set up a claim with Metro Bi-State and quickly negotiated a favorable settlement for $14,000, an amount well over the cost of his medical bills from the bus accident.
