St. Louis Accident Injures Many, Kills One

One man died and several were injured in a freak St. Louis accident last week. The incident happened on Saturday night, when a group of at least two hundred gathered outside of Kilroy’s Bar to celebrate the Cardinal’s win over the Milwaukee Brewers. When a sudden storm hit the area, the large white tent over the crowd became detached from the ground and crashed through the crowd.

Although the cause of the 58-year-old man’s death was ruled a heart attack, it’s unclear whether or not the heart attack was related to the flying debris. Approximately 100 people were treated at the scene of the accident, and 17 were taken to area hospitals. At least five are still hospitalized, and were last reported as being in serious condition.

According to KCTV News 5, St. Louis building commissioner Frank Oswald reported that the tent had passed inspection less than a month prior to the St. Louis accident. Oswald stated that in order to pass the inspection, tents must be able to withstand winds of at least 90 mph. However, witnesses to the accident have reported winds estimated around 60 mph and tennis ball sized hail. Officials continue their investigation into this tragic St. Louis accident.

Those who sustained injuries in this accident should contact a knowledgeable St. Louis accident lawyer as soon as possible. Even if their injuries seem minor, anyone hurt in a St. Louis accident should consult an experienced St. Louis accident lawyer to discuss their situation. Injuries can worsen, and accident victims often find themselves incurring medical bills for quite some time following their initial injuries.

A skilled St. Louis accident lawyer will evaluate your injury claim and can negotiate a settlement that will cover the costs of any future medical treatment, as well as your other losses (for example, lost wages, or pain and suffering.)

Yet, a top settlement can’t be obtained without all of the facts being properly evaluated. Only an experienced St. Louis accident lawyer has the skills needed to conduct an in-depth investigation into the circumstances of your accident. Often, there is more than one party who can be held liable for your injures, and only a top St. Louis accident lawyer can ensure that all of the responsible parties are identified.
