WRRSV Obtains Top Win in the State of Missouri For Victim of Child Abuse

January 31, 2013

On December 31, 2012, WRRSV was also featured in the Missouri Lawyers Weekly in an article entitled Judge Rules for Sexually Abused Swimmer. The WRRSV trial team of Fred Walters and Karen Renwick successfully represented a child who was sexually abused by her swim coach. We obtained a judgment on her behalf for $5,040,000. When insurance companies refused to pay the judgment, WRRSV vigorously pursued claims against them for coverage and insurer bad faith. Ultimately, we obtained a recovery of over $11.5 million for the victim. (In addition to the $11.5 million recovery, another confidential settlement was obtained from yet another insurer). The recovery was ranked in Missouri Lawyers Weekly as a Top Win in the State of Missouri for 2012, ranking 13th in overall recoveries.
