Woman Settles Case for “Largest Reported Settlement” in Perry County

Posted by Matthew J. Devoti on April 25, 2012

A 91 year old woman represented by Casey & Devoti resolved her Perry County personal injury case for “the largest reported amount” from the county according to a leading Missouri legal newspaper.

The woman fell as she was walking toward the entrance to the Hardee’s restaurant in Perryville. She fractured her hip and the fracture required a partial joint replacement. The woman was living independently in the home that she shared with her husband for more than 60 years. She is now unable to climb steps and has been forced to move to an assisted living center.

Matt Devoti represented the woman in her case against the restaurant. The case settled just two weeks before it was set to be tried to a jury in Perryville in Perry County. Perryville is located about 75 miles south of St. Louis along Interstate 55.

A leading legal newspaper, Missouri Lawyers Weekly, reported the settlement. Lawyers Weekly described the settlement as “the largest reported settlement from Perry County in [the paper’s verdict and settlement] database.”
