For nearly 20 years, our firm has provided legal services to injured clients. Recently, we secured a jury verdict for a teacher injured on a slide at the City Museum. We believe negligent and careless parties must be held accountable, and we are proud to help victims seek justice against those who are responsible.

About the Case

Amy Atkinson suffered a ligamentous injury to her left knee while going down a 70-foot slide at the City Museum in 2015. The slide’s design caused Ms. Atkinson to be launched from a wave within the tube slide, where her foot became stuck to the ceiling, causing a hyperextension of her knee. As a result, Ms. Atkinson suffered personal injuries and significant distress.

How Our Firm Helped

Representing Ms. Atkinson, attorneys Amy Collignon Gunn, Elizabeth Washam and Tony Friedman filed a lawsuit against the City Museum, alleging negligence and failure to maintain a safe and functional slide. Our attorneys worked diligently to hold the City Museum accountable for Ms. Atkinson’s injuries and, after a three day trial, proved to a St. Louis jury that the City Museum was negligent in maintaining and operating the slide which it had designed. The jury awarded Ms. Atkinson $325,000 for her knee injury.
