July 8th, 2009 – The St. Louis Daily Record (“The Record”) headlined their July 8, 2009 paper with a story covering a recent lawsuit Cosgrove Law, LLC filed in the St. Louis County Circuit Court on behalf of our client, The Estate of Steven Bonifer. The Record examined the lawsuit filed against Steven Dioneda of Kullman, Klein & Dioneda and Wal-Mart which alleges legal malpractice and breach of fiduciary duty against Dioneda and negligence and unlawful merchandising against Wal-Mart.
Mr. Bonifer was involved in a claim against Wal-Mart at the time of his death, which was caused by ethylene glycol toxicity (or antifreeze poisoning), for an accident that occurred in a Wal-Mart store. Mr. Bonifer suffered greatly for the last two years of his life and incurred over $83,000 in medical bills due to the accident. Kullman, Klein & Dioneda, who represented Mr. Bonifer at the time of his death, purported to settle the matter with Wal-Mart for $35,000 after Mr. Bonifer’s death, but prior to his Estate being opened. Mr. Bonifer’s Estate, with the help of Cosgrove Law, LLC, is now pursuing justice for Mr. Bonifer and his Estate.
