Congratulations to Lawyers of Distinction member Mr. William Wunderlich, Esq. of High Ridge, Missouri, who helped facilitate a $850,000.00 settlement against a law firm which failed to obtain and preserve the vehicle in a potential failure of airbag to deploy case. The case presented the very interesting “Catch-22” issue of claiming that the plaintiff was harmed due to the defendants’ failure to preserve the potential evidence – ie., the case could not be proven without the vehicle to inspect, and in needing to prove that plaintiff would have prevailed in the underlying products case under the “case within a case” standard even though the vehicle was not available.
Mr. Wunderlich graduated with his Juris Doctorate from the University of Missouri-Columbia Law School and was admitted to practice in the state of Missouri in 1973.
