Stryker Hip Recall Lawyers Now Offer No-Cost, No-Obligation Claim Review for Persons with Recalled Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Replacement Systems Nationally


St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 22, 2013

The Onder Law Firm, which has consulted with thousands of people with recalled joint replacement systems and other joint replacement system claims, is providing a free consultation to those with Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG-II modular neck-stem hip replacement systems, which were recalled by Stryker Orthopaedics on July 6, 2012. The Stryker hip recall (fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm311043.htm) was issued voluntarily with a warning to those with the recalled Stryker hip systems that they potentially pose risks for fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction. The Rejuvenate hip replacement system, one of Stryker’s best-selling products, was introduced in 2010 and the ABG-II hip replacement system was used beginning in 2008. Both models utilize a metal component at the joint which, under normal wear, may produce minute metallic debris, known as fretting.

St. Louis Injury Attorney Joshua P. Myers Named Missouris Winningest Attorney By The Missouri Lawyer's Weekly


St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) February 19, 2013

Joshua P. Myers, founding partner of Schultz & Myers, LLC, has been awarded the prestigious Missouris Winningest Attorney award, by the Missouri Lawyers Weekly. This well-respected legal trade publication has been actively involved in reporting all aspects of legal news in Missouri since 1987. In determining who to honor, the publication reviews the verdicts reported by all lawyers across the state of Missouri over the past year. Over the past year, Joshua Myers obtained numerous large verdicts. His verdicts in the past year include a $ 546,000 verdict against a drunk driver in the Circuit Court of Iron County, Missouri (Case 07IR-CC00050) which is believed to be one of the biggest personal injury verdicts ever to come out of the county and a verdict of $ 11,494,637 obtained in the Circuit Court of The City of St. Louis, Missouri (Case 1222-CC09848) which was the second biggest wrongful death verdict obtained by any Missouri lawyer in 2012.

Since its inception, Schultz & Myers, LLC has been striving to become the Best Personal Injury Law Firm in St. Louis. This is exemplified by the fact that in just the past several years, the firm has obtained more than $ 40 Million in judgments and settlements and its founding partners have been interviewed by numerous media outlets including Fox 2 News and Good Morning America. The firm reports that they exclusively handle Personal Injury Cases, which stems from their philosophy that the best way to completely master one area of law is to focus solely on that area. In this age of specialization, a legal firm cannot be all-things-to-all-people, and claim to offer the highest level of expertise in each area of law.

During a recent interview, Josh Myers explained that the Insurance Companies are well aware of which attorneys have the knowledge and experience to properly develop a case, including using expert witnesses, and other forensic evidence to prove their case. It still astounds me how many lawyers will settle when push comes to shove because they are either to afraid to go to trial or they just do not know how to try a case. The problem is that the insurance companies keep files on lawyers and they know who will take them to trial and who will not. Of course, this affects the value of the settlements. We have never been afraid to go to trial and I am extremely honored to receive this recognition for our trial results.”

St. Louis Injury Attorney Joshua P. Myers has built a reputation as being a tenacious fighter for the legal rights of his clients. A no-nonsense approach has propelled him to the top of the legal profession, and has earned him the respect of the insurance companies. From the beginning, he has steadfastly refused to become a settlement-mill, where cases are handled by paralegals, anxious to settle on the first offer by the insurance company.

This award is the latest of numerous honors bestowed upon Myers in the past several years. In 2010, he was named as one of Missouri Lawyers Weeklys Up & Coming Lawyers. He has also been repeatedly named by the National Trial Lawyers as being among Missouris Top 100 Trial Lawyers and also one of the states Top 40 Lawyers Under 40. He has also been honored by Martindale with an AV Preeminent rating which is the top rating available for attorneys.

Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Schultz & Myers also maintains offices in Chicago, Illinois and Bentonville, Arkansas. The firm focuses on handling personal injury cases on behalf of the injured across all of Missouri, Illinois, and Arkansas. Schultz & Myers strives to set itself apart from other law by offering exceptional service exemplified by their Clients Bill of Rights and their focus on client communication. Myers explains that the biggest complaints most people have about their lawyer is that the lack of communication. Thus, the firm has made communication a priority and therefore offers their clients a multitude of ways to contact them.

Loma Linda, Ca (PRWEB) February 05, 2013

San Bernardino bus accident lawyers at The Scranton Law Firm are announcing a new No Cost Injury Hotline in response to the recent tragic tour bus accident that has left several people dead and many more injured. According to the Los Angeles Times early reports about the tour bus company suggest that they had a history of maintenance problems with their buses before this accident occurred. Anytime we hear about accidents that maybe could have been avoided we feel like we should do everything we can to help the families. We set up this new No Cost Injury Hotline because there is a strong likelihood that this bus may have had maintenance issues that we part of the cause of this terrible accident, says Dalton of The Scranton Law Firm.

According to reports from the Los Angeles Times the Tijuana-based agency that contracted the bus that flipped on a mountain road near Yucaipa suspended operations Monday as investigators continued to comb the wreckage of the crash, which killed at least seven people and injured dozens of others.

The tour bus, owned by Scapadas Magicas of National City, was operating under a contract with InterBus Tours and Charters, located in a strip mall in an upscale district near Tijuana’s restaurant row. The agency closed its office on Monday, but not before another bus in the morning departed for Knott’s Berry Farm with about 30 passengers.

When we heard that this company continued on with another tour bus departure after this accident we decided to set up the No Cost Injury Hotline Immediately, said Dalton. San Bernardino wrongful death lawyers at Scranton Law Firm are dedicated advocates for accident victims. According to the Los Angeles Times, Citations of the tour buses owned by Scapadas Magicas were numerous and serious enough that the company was placed on a federal watch list that flagged its buses for increased roadside inspections. Bald tires, defective or missing axle parts, and insufficient brake linings were among 59 maintenance violations inspectors found on the firm’s buses in the last two years, U.S. Department of Transportation safety records show.
