Jeff Suess and John Kemppainen tried this premises liability case for the May Department Stores Company in the City of St. Louis. Plaintiff claimed she fell at the Northwest Plaza Famous Barr store sustaining a traumatic brain injury with right sided hemiparesis, loss of memory and personality changes, together with soft tissue neck and back complaints. Medical specials at trial were $43,000 with future medical expenses estimated at $150,000. Plaintiff's pre-trial demand was $450,000. Defendant, while acknowledging serious soft tissue injuries, contested the existence of a brain injury. After (8) days of trial the jury awarded the plaintiff only $31,000.
