    Medical Malpractice Cantor Injury Law acted as co-counsel for a young girl who was turned away from a hospital emergency room despite evidence of severe infection. Ultimately, our client’s kidneys began failing due to the hospital’s failure to timely diagnose, leading to a lifetime need for ongoing medical care. A St. Louis City jury awarded our client 18.25 million dollars due to the conduct of the defendant and the lifelong problems they caused. This is one of the largest medical malpractice verdicts ever in the State of Missouri and the largest ever in St. Louis City.

    Auto Accident
  • $1,950,000.00
    Personal Injury

    Sharon Honerkamp underwent a total knee replacement and was transported home from the hospital by a private ambulance company in a wheelchair and with a precautionary oxygen tank. Once they arrived at her home, the defendants lodged Ms. Honerkamp, and her wheelchair, in the doorway as they tried to push her into her home. While Ms. Honerkamp and her wheelchair were stuck in the entryway, the ambulance company employees carelessly attempted to pass the heavy oxygen tank over Ms. Honerkamp. Unfortunately, the transporters dropped the oxygen tank directly onto the replaced knee, which fractured her femur and ultimately required her to undergo an additional (and more extensive) knee replacement. The hematoma at the fracture site and the additional surgery led to extensive infections throughout Ms. Honerkamp's body. The defendant company had no record of the transport ever occurring, much less any record of the oxygen tank being dropped, and was unable to even identify the names of the negligent employee. The only record of the transportation happening was a cancelled check in the amount of $150.00 secured by Cantor Injury Law from Plaintiff 's own bank records. Mark Cantor and Brian Winebright represented Ms. Honerkamp and filed suit in her claim. The defendant represented that there was one million dollars of insurance available, but through discovery it was revealed that there was an additional umbrella insurance policy of one million dollars. Mark Cantor and Brian Winebright demanded maximum insurance payouts and ultimately settled to avoid a lengthy courtroom proceeding one month before trial (which was set in October of 2017).

  • $600,000.00 Jury Verdict
    Slip and Fall

    In August of 2017, Mark Cantor & Nathan Davis of Cantor Injury Law obtained a $600,000.00 jury verdict in favor of their client in Morgan County, Missouri. Our client, Diana Buchanan, slipped and fell when coming out of a bathroom of a Versailles gas station after the employees mopped the floor while Ms. Buchanan was in the bathroom. During the investigation of the case, our attorneys discovered that the gas station employees did not follow their own policies and procedures when mopping the floor, creating a dangerous condition for Ms. Buchanan. The employees contended throughout the whole case that they did nothing wrong.

    The entire defense to the case was that Ms. Buchanan walked within a few feet of a caution wet floor sign as she entered the store, and the defense repeatedly played a video to prove that fact. Plaintiff admitted that she must have seen the sign, but the sign meant nothing because the floors were "bone dry" as she walked to the bathroom from the entrance of the store. Due to the fall, Ms. Buchanan required a left knee replacement and underwent further surgery on her left ankle.

    Our firm performed an electronic mock jury focus group to assist with the valuation of the case. The vast majority of the people in that focus group found that the employees of the gas station didn’t follow their own policies and procedures and were liable for Ms. Buchanan’s injuries. Due, in part, to the results of the mock jury, the firm turned down a significant offer of $175,000 prior to trial. After conducting a three-day jury trial, the jury found the defendant 70% at fault for Ms. Buchanan’s slip and fall, and awarded her damages in the amount $600,000, After the allocation of fault, Ms. Buchanan received a total of $420,000.

  • $569,000.00 Total Value
    Construction Accident On October 14, 2015, our client was severely injured while working as a bricklayer on the construction of the North Tower at the Barnes Jewish campus on Kingshighway in the City of St. Louis. He was performing block work on an elevator shaft. At the same time, a local concrete company was pouring concrete with a concrete pump and hose at the edge of the opening to the elevator shaft, 5.5 levels above where our client’s crew was working. A bowling-ball sized concrete glob flew out of the hose, over the edge and in to the elevator shaft, and plummeted roughly 5.5 stories before slamming into the back of our client’s head and neck. He required extensive care and treatment for his closed head injury and cervical spine injuries at multiple levels, including a disc herniation at C6-C7. He was on narcotic pain medication, and underwent multiple nerve root block procedures. He eventually underwent a cervical discectomy and fusion procedure. We settled the client’s workers compensation claim first, and extracted an agreement that he would not need to pay anything back to the workers compensation system if he pursued a civil case. We then filed a civil case with the concrete company as Defendant. After just one deposition in the civil case, counsel for the Defendant proposed mediation. We agreed to go to mediation under two conditions: (1) Agreement to waive worker’s compensation subrogation as part of any settlement, and (2) A minimum offer of $200,000.00. The Defendant agreed to both conditions. Then, after a long day of mediation, our client accepted a final settlement offer of $445,00.00 to resolve the civil case. The combined total value of the workers compensation and civil cases was in excess of $569,000.00.

  • $350,000.00

Jessica was struck by a teenage driver who took a corner too fast in his Ford F150 in Ripley County, Missouri, which is near Arkansas. Jessica had a knee injury and had to have surgery. Unfortunately, Jessica did not have health insurance, so Mark Cantor arranged for her to go to the best doctors in St. Louis for medical care. The defense did not want to pay and had lots of excuses, but eventually offered us the policy limits of $250,000 and we refused to accept those policy limits and were able to settle the case for a favorable, $350,000 insurance settlement.

  • $100,000.00 Jury Verdict
    Premises Liability In August of 2017, Mark Cantor and Brian Winebright won a jury verdict for our client, Jon Sandberg. Jon was visiting his friend's apartment in Overland, Missouri. As Jon was visiting with his friend, he leaned back onto the deck railing when it broke off and collapsed, sending Mr. Sandberg several feet to the ground. As a result, Mr. Sandberg suffered a concussion and injured his shoulder. His medical bills totaled $25,359.36.

    Mark Cantor filed a lawsuit against the property owner, Thuan Nguyen, alleging that he knew or could have known of the dangerous condition of property and failed to remedy or warn of the unsafe railing. The defendant's deposition and trial testimony were consistent in that Mr. Nguyen never performed any inspections of the decks on that apartment or any other apartments that he owned. The defendant claimed that he could not know that the deck railing was rotten because it was painted, but admitted that he himself personally painted it.

    After a two-day jury trial in St. Louis County, Mr. Sandberg was awarded $100,000.00 for his injury. Defendant Nguyen was found 100% at-fault for the deck's failure.

  • $50,000.00 Settlment
    Dog Bite Our client, Jackson, was five years old and riding his bicycle on his neighborhood sidewalk in Chesterfield. As he was riding past a neighbor's home, a Labrador Retriever ran out of the defendants' home, chased Jackson down, and dragged him from his bicycle by biting him on his knee and ankle. Jackson was taken to the emergency room, but they were unable to stitch the wounds because of the concern of infection.

    When confronted before litigation, the defendant dog owner believed that his dog only "pushed him down" and refused to turn the claim into his homeowner's insurance. As a result, Cantor Injury Law immediately filed a lawsuit against the defendant dog owner (which was quickly turned into his homeowner's insurance after defendants were served).

    The five-year-old plaintiff had $1,700.00 in total bills and $1,200.00 in paid medical. The case resolved shortly before trial at a court-ordered mediation for $50,000.00. The medical expenses were for one emergency room visit and one follow up with his pediatrician, but Cantor Injury Law was able to obtain a large settlement for Jackson by leveraging the defendants' conduct after the bite, and focusing on the long-term mental and physical effects of a childhood trauma.
