$9.5 Million Record-Setting Verdict for Keith Magnuson Family in Wrongful Death Lawsuit

In a trial arising out of the death of one of Chicago’s most beloved hockey players, Keith Magnuson, a jury awarded $9.5 million to the family of the former Chicago Blackhawks defenseman and coach. It is the largest jury verdict for a personal injury and/or wrongful death case in St. Louis County, Missouri. On December 15, 2003, Magnuson was in Toronto for the funeral of a fellow retired National Hockey League player who served with Magnuson on the board of the National Hockey League Alumni Association (NHLAA). Rob Ramage, a retired St. Louis Blues player, had rented a car from National Car Rental and was driving Magnuson to the NHLAA offices for a meeting when his car crossed the center line and crashed head-on into another vehicle. Magnuson died instantly from head and chest injuries. Blood alcohol tests revealed that Ramage was legally drunk at the time of the collision. Corboy & Demetrio attorneys along with St. Louis attorney Grant Davis represented the Magnuson family.
