$113 Million Verdict Awarded to Missouri Corrections Workers Being Denied Overtime Pay by the MO Department of Corrections

Burger Law wins big for Missouri Correctional Workers who were repeatedly being denied pay for pre and post-shift work. On August 15th, 2018, a Cole County jury rendered a verdict for a class of Missouri Corrections officers against the Missouri Department of Corrections in the amount of $113,714,632. The front line Corrections Officers and Sergeants testified at trial that the Department of Corrections required them to perform pre and post-shift work but refused to pay them for it. The jury awarded all compensation requested by the Plaintiff class for the 11 year class time period to pay for the wages earned in pre and post-shift activity by these 13,000 class members. This verdict culminated years of litigation spearheaded by Gary Burger of Burger Law. Gary Burger stated, “I am proud to have been able to represent these hard working and honorable men and women corrections officers fight the Missouri Department of Correction’s dishonorable system.”

Personal Injury Lawyers in St Louis

The types of personal injury cases are as numerous as the types of injuries someone can suffer due to another’s actions. Personal injury claims can stem from either accidental injuries or intentional acts. Both scenarios are equally valid bases for personal injury compensation claims but have their own legal standards that a plaintiff and their St Louis personal injury lawyer must meet.

Types of Injury Claims

Accidental claims typically rest on the legal theory of negligence. This allows people who suffered injuries due to someone’s carelessness to ask for compensation for their injuries.
In most cases, a plaintiff must prove that the defendant owed them a duty to care for their well-being. They then must demonstrate that actions taken by the defendant breached this duty and caused their injuries.

Common examples of negligence cases include:

  • Car accidents
  • Commercial vehicle accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Slip and falls
  • Premises liability claims

Cases can also rely upon a theory that the defendant failed to act to protect the plaintiff. For example, hotels have a duty to protect all guests. If a guest is assaulted or burgled on the property, the hotel may be found negligent by a St Louis accident attorney in failing to provide adequate security.

Filing a Personal Injury Claim

Other claims result from intentional acts. Whenever this is the case, the defendant will often also face criminal charges. Even if a defendant faces a conviction, the criminal court is powerless to order this defendant to compensate the injured person.

To collect compensation, a plaintiff must file and pursue a civil lawsuit on their own. These cases differ from negligence cases and have their own legally established causes of action.
When a defendant pleads guilty in criminal court, the civil case becomes much simpler. A legal concept known as res judicata states that a party to a lawsuit cannot argue the facts of a case twice. In other words, if a defendant pleads guilty of assault in a criminal case, they cannot argue that they did not commit the act in a related civil case.
