The law firm of Gump & Faiella, LLC, of Moberly, Missouri congratulates Chris Faiella for again being recognized by Missouri Lawyers Weekly in their list of Top Verdicts & Settlements of 2009.
The $2.5 million settlement was reached for the family of a Moberly woman who was killed in a head-on collision on Missouri Route 22 near Centralia, Missouri, on June 9, 2008. The decedent had been driving to Centralia with her sister and adult daughter when the other driver, an employee of Ozark Kenworth, allegedly reached for his cell phone and swerved across the centerline and struck their vehicle. The two sisters were declared dead at the scene, and the daughter sustained serious personal injuries. The adult daughter, who is mentally disabled, received full care from her mother before the accident. The case, Williams, et al v. Ozark Kenworth, Inc., and Jeffrey Schuermann, Case No. 08-0417-CV-W-DGK was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri.
Chris Faiella focuses his practice on serious personal injury and its tragic consequences including wrongful death, insurance coverage disputes, bad faith and product liability.
