FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
ST. LOUIS, June 27, 2019 – Personal injury attorneys Cook, Barkett, Ponder & Wolz have expanded their practice with the opening of a new office in the St. Louis market.
“This new office provides better access to injury victims in St. Louis and the surrounding region, making our services more convenient during what is already a difficult time in their lives,” said J. Michael Ponder, attorney and partner at Cook, Barkett, Ponder & Wolz. “As our practice continues to grow in St. Louis, it made sense to expand our firm while maintaining our practice in the Cape Girardeau market for injury victims in Southeast Missouri and surrounding states.”
The lawyers of Cook, Barkett, Ponder & Wolz have served personal injury victims and their families for nearly seven decades, focusing on car and big truck collisions, train wrecks, wrongful deaths, medical malpractice and product liability cases. The firm litigates cases throughout all levels of the court system – from the Federal Courts to the Courts of Appeals to the State Courts Systems.
The number of people affected by such incidents is staggering. In the U.S., it’s estimated that more than 100,000 people die each year from preventable medical errors, such as surgical mistakes or incorrect diagnoses. And in Missouri alone, around 16,000 people die in auto wrecks each year, making the state the 15th highest in the U.S. per capita.
“Without representation by an experienced personal injury attorney, these victims and their families stand a much lower chance of receiving justice,” said Kathleen A. Wolz, attorney and partner at Cook, Barkett, Ponder & Wolz. “If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury and another party is responsible, you deserve fair compensation. That’s why our practice is focused on personal injury law. And it’s why we’re proud to expand our practice with a location in the St. Louis market, giving more individuals access to our services.”
The practice’s St. Louis office is located at 100 South 4th Street, Suite 550. Learn more about Cook, Barkett, Ponder & Wolz at www.CBPW-LAW.com.
