A 42 year-old man who works as a security guard in St. Louis was driving Westbound on Interstate 64/40 just before the Kingshighway exit. He had slowed down due to traffic ahead when he was rear-ended. The impact caused his left ankle to be jammed into the floorboard. The man had sustained a prior serious injury to his left ankle which required surgery involving implanted plates and screws. When the security guard jammed his foot during the rear-end collision, it damaged the hardware in his ankle, and caused the need for additional surgery to make repairs. Chris Geldmacher represented the man and filed a claim against the other driver and her insurance company. Mr. Geldmacher settled the case and his client received $121,000 for his injury.
