$50,000 Verdict for Low-Impact Motor Vehicle Accident

Result

When our client was side-swiped by an inattentive driver, Allstate Insurance Company refused to pay a fair amount for its insured’s negligent acts.  We were able to win a verdict for our client in the amount of $50,000.  This was almost double what Allstate was willing to pay.

Facts

The Defendant pulled out of Grasso Plaza onto Gravois Road in St. Louis, Missouri. The Defendant failed to yield and ran into our client’s vehicle, causing it to spin 180 degrees.

Hi, Tyson Mutrux here with the Mutrux Law Firm.

What To Do When I’m Being Investigated for Missouri Medicaid Fraud?

 The Missouri Department of Social Services runs the State of Missouri Medicaid program. Medical providers who are eligible participants in Missouri’s Medicaid program are subject to specific rules and regulations.

The voluminous amount of rules and regulations often leave medical providers confused and unable to keep up with the mandatory requirements. As a result, medical providers may become subject to a potential investigation by the Missouri Medicaid Audit & Compliance Unit.

The Initial Investigation

The Missouri Medicaid Audit and Compliance Unit (MMAC) are constantly reviewing eligible providers.

BURWELL, SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, ET AL. v. HOBBY LOBBY STORES, INC., ET AL.

The highly anticipated “Hobby Lobby case” has finally been decided.    Because most people have no clue what the case is REALLY about or what the opinion ACTUALLY says, I figured I would provide it here so that you can read the opinion for yourself.  Enjoy!

I came across a new case out of the 7th Circuit that is troubling to me,

State of Missouri ex rel. Red Cross Pharmacy, Inc. vs. The Honorable Larry D. Harman, Judge of the Circuit Court of Clay County at Liberty

Pharmacy-Patient Relationship Discussed
Pharmacy is a health-care provider and had a pharmacist-patient relationship, despite absence of direct contact, under statutes, through contractual obligation to assist in treatment, and by petitioner’s allegations of sub-standard care.  In negligence action against health-care provider, statute requires petitioner to file affidavit stating that petitioner has an opinion supporting the action from a “provider licensed . . . in the same profession as the defendant [.]”  Pharmacology and toxicology are not close enough to pharmacy for affidavit to be sufficient.
