Robert Short v. Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital ($200,000)


A Two Hundred Thousand Dollar ($200,000.00) settlement was secured for a seventy (70) year old gentleman who fractured his ankle on a fall on ice at the parking lot at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital. There was initially dispute as to whether the presence of ice and snow on the parking lot caused Plaintiff’s fall, but the lawyers at Growe Eisen Karlen secured independent testimony which confirmed that ice and snow was present on the parking lot in the area where Plaintiff fell. Testimony was also obtained which confirmed that no salt or other de-icing product had been applied to the parking lot on the morning of the fall. Plaintiff received his compensation after having suffered a fracture of his left ankle.
