10 Motor Vehicle Accidents We have handled hundreds of auto and truck accidents. These cases range from injuries such as soft tissue, sore neck and back cases to catastrophic injuries involving paralysis, brain injury or death. 18 Wheeler Wreck Brain Injury $1.7 Million Net to Client Near Amarillo, Texas, an 18-wheeler ran a stop sign in front of a pickup truck where our client was a passenger. The pickup truck went underneath the tractor trailer causing serious brain injury to our client. We showed the truck driver s logs were falsified and he had been driving in excess of the maximum hours allowed under DOT regulations. We helped our client, who had been a Broadway actor, get treatment for his brain injury at a world renowned hospital in Denver. one of the nation s leading experts in helmet safety issues and show that, due to the velocity that our client hit the ground and the location of his head injury, a helmet would not have prevented the brain injury he suffered. We helped our client obtain the best possible medical and rehabilitation care. This aggressive medical treatment helped ensure that our client could make the best possible recovery. That care would not have been available without arrangements that we made on his behalf. Oilfield Accidents We have successfully represented numerous oilfield injuries and death claims and maintain an active docket of claims. Our experience helps us identify the root cause of the accident and develop evidence to establish the responsible party. Motorcycle Wreck Brain Injury $5 Million Net to Client Our client was driving a motorcycle when a truck ran a stop sign in front of him. Our client suffered a significant brain injury and one of the difficult questions in the case was whether a helmet would have made a difference in this case. We were able to hire Oilfield Equipment Broken Jaw $750,000 Net to Client Our client was a wire line operator in the oilfield. While running test equipment on a well, the threads on a well head joint failed, causing the well head equipment to blast off the well head and strike him in the face. Our client suffered serious jaw and facial 8

11 injuries. We demonstrated that the oilfield equipment had an improper combination of tapered threads and straight cut threads which were a mismatch. The equipment had been supplied in a mismatched condition from an oilfield equipment supplier who was ultimately liable for the accident. Oilfield Spill Chemical Burn $2.5 Million Net to Client Our client was working at a gas compression station near Andrews, Texas when a chemical company came to deliver acid to a 500-gallon tank. Our client went out to sign a purchase receipt for the delivery when the driver, who was standing on a 5 gallon bucket and holding the hose above his head, asked our client to flip a switch on the truck to turn on the pump. When our client flipped the switch, the delivery driver fell off the bucket and sprayed our client with acid causing burns to his arms and back. We discovered in litigation that delivery drivers for this chemical company had been complaining for two years that the acid tank did not have proper connections for their hose to make a safe delivery. Instead they had to hold the hose over the head and top fill the tank. The chemical company sales people finally admitted that they knew the delivery system was unsafe, but did not want to lose the customer so they continued to make deliveries, even though the tank did not have proper hose connections. Industrial Accidents We have handled hundreds of industrial workplace injury claims. These cases range from gas explosions to grain elevator deaths and cotton gin amputations to meat packing plant accidents. Many times companies try to create the appearance of worker s compensation insurance when, in fact, they are non-subscribers. We identify thirdparty claims and aggressively pursue gross negligence death claims even when there is worker s compensation insurance. For detailed case summaries, visit 9

12 Gas Plant Explosion Death $1.9 Million Net to Client Our client s husband was the supervisor for an oilfield services company that was testing pipe at a gas plant. The testing company used nitrogen gas to pressure up pipes to ensure that it was structurally sound before it was installed in a gas compression plant. While testing pipes our client s husband over-pressured the pipe and it exploded, causing his death. Even though our decedent was in charge of pressuring up the pipe, we showed that he had been working for over 20 hours straight without a break, in violation of hours of service rules. Also we showed that the pressures that were to be used were communicated poorly and critical information was not being communicated methodically. The pressures to be used in the test were communicated verbally and written with chalk on the pipe. It was easy to see that the accident was going to happen under these circumstances. Grain Elevator Death $455,000 Net to Client Our client s husband was an employee at a grain elevator and was trying to shovel grain towards an auger. The whirlpool of grain caught him and pulled him into the auger to his death. Even though the defendant had worker s compensation, Texas law allows a family of a person killed at work to bring a claim against the employer only for gross negligence and punitive damages. This was a settlement of such a punitive damages claim. Cotton Gin Amputated Fingers $216,000 Net to Client This is one of many cotton gin cases that we have handled. The lint cleaners on many cotton gins lack guards which are required by OSHA standards. Additionally, during cotton ginning seasons the ginners are reluctant to turn off the equipment when the delinting equipment gets jammed up with cotton. Our client was asked to try to clean cotton off the delinter while it was running and the machinery caught his hand, amputating several fingers. Like many others in our region, this cotton gin did not carry worker s compensation insurance. Therefore, we were able to make a claim directly against them and collect from their insurance company. Industrial Finger Amputation $1.4 Million Net to Client Our client was an employee at an Excel Meat Packing Plant in Friona, Texas. He worked in the trolley room where they washed the trolleys that carried the carcasses through the plant. To dry the equipment after it was washed, they had a blow 10

13 dryer and a piece of pipe attached to the blower to direct the air. Our client was told by his boss to wipe out the pipe, which had oil, used to lubricate the blower, accumulating inside. Our client had several of his fingers amputated. The defendant did not carry worker s compensation insurance and was self-insured which allowed us to make a claim against them for negligence. When an employer does not carry worker s compensation, they are not allowed to use contributory negligence as a defense and so they were not able to blame our client for his part in causing his injuries. Construction Accidents Our law firm has handled multiple construction accidents involving serious injury and death. In construction accidents, we are often able to show that the general contractor violated safety standards. We are familiar with OSHA standards and work with OSHA safety experts who evaluate the causes of work injuries and help establish negligence. Construction Accident Death $1 Million Net to Client Our client was working on a trench for a sewer line for a new commercial building when heavy rain delayed construction. When the trench had dried up enough to work, our client went into the trench and it collapsed, causing his death. Unfortunately this trench did not have the required safety bracing required by OSHA to prevent collapses. Burn Injuries Our law firm has handled multiple burn injury cases and recovered millions of dollars for clients. We have handled burn injuries including flash gas explosions, electrical burns, chemical burns involving both acid and caustic chemicals, hot water burns and hot oil burns. Our law firm can help you get through the difficult and painful process of a burn injury by letting you know what to expect with your claim, and making sure that you have access to the best medical treatment available.

14 Oilfield Accident Burn $2.5 Million Net to Client Our client was working as a welder on an oilfield gas pipeline collection system near Ozona, Texas. The welding company had received a hot work permit from the operator of the pipeline system which assured them that the gas wells had been cut off so they could do their maintenance on the gas lines. While our client was welding a pipe, an automatic valve from a gas well opened releasing natural gas directly onto our client. The gas ignited and our client suffered burns to his face and hands. The defendant accepted responsibility for the case and it was settled early in litigation. Brain Injuries We have handled several brain injury cases including frontal lobe injury cases, subdural hematomas and temporal and defuse injury cases. We have extensive experience working with neurologists to help make sure you get the best and most appropriate medical treatment. Our experience will help you maximize the recovery for your brain injury. Car Wreck Brain Injury $2.8 Million Net to Client Our client was injured in a rear-end collision when the Defendant attempted to pass him at an excessive rate of speed. Although our client was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident the force of the collision ejected him from the rear window of his vehicle. We were able to prove that at the time of the collision, the Defendant was driving while intoxicated with a blood alcohol content of.281 percent, more than three times the legal limit in Texas. The Defendant also tested positive for marijuana. We helped our client obtain assistance from one of the nation s leading brain injury rehabilitation facilities. We documented his therapy and progress on video which made for a compelling presentation to the drunk driver s insurance company. As a result of the settlement, our client s future medical needs are being met. Defective Products We have handled defective product cases involving automobile seat belts, automobile handicapped driver controls, tractors and industrial equipment, golf clubs and various other products. We have experience working with engineers, metallurgists and industry experts to find out why an accident occurred. Many times we can find a potential liable defendant going back and analyzing the supply chain of the product. Defective Product Death $468,000 Net to Client Our client was a gentleman in his late 70 s who had purchased a new Cadillac for his wife for mother s day. Our client had the car equipped with handicap controls so that he could operate the vehicle. The first week of driving the car, our client s wife got her foot caught on the rod which prevented access to the brake as she approached a stop sign. She lost control of the car and struck an embankment which resulted in her death. We sued alleging the device had been poorly designed and improperly installed to interfere with the 12

15 driver s foot. Though the Defendants took the position that it was physically impossible to install the rod any other way, we bought an identical Cadillac and had the controls installed by another dealership. At mediation we demonstrated a correct installation was feasible. The Defendants knew we had an example Cadillac with a properly installed rod and gave up on their argument and instead settled the case. Railroad Crossing Accidents Railroad litigation is a very specialized and complex area of law. Our firm has a national reputation for grade crossing accident litigation. We have extensive experience and access to a network of expert witnesses to help evaluate your claim and proceed appropriately. Train Wreck Death $13.5 Million Net to Client Our minor clients were left orphaned after their parents and one sibling were killed in a railroad crossing when the train failed to sound a whistle warning. Through expert witnesses, photographic and video evidence we were able to demonstrate that the crossing was unsafe and should have had lights and gates. Kevin Glasheen was lead counsel at trial and the case was settled on appeal after a favorable jury verdict. Train Wreck Death $4.6 Million Net to Client Our clients child was killed when a train struck a car at a railroad crossing near Shallowater, Texas. The railroad had failed to control the vegetation around the crossing and the high weeds obstructed the view of the approaching train. The jury awarded 46 million dollars, but the case was settled based on a high-low settlement agreement made before the verdict. That agreement provided the clients would receive one million dollars regardless of what the jury awarded or would receive whatever the jury awarded, up to 8 million but then would limit the client s recovery if the jury verdict exceeded that sum. The settlement was paid within 30 days of trial with no appeals. For detailed case summaries, visit 13
