"The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual." - Vince Lombardi
A young man who was working on a construction site operating a freight elevator suffered a puncture wound on his leg when a subcontractor pallet jack operator negligently swung a piece of scaffolding into the elevator operator. After being treated for a seemingly minor injury, the man began experiencing severe burning pain that was disproportionate to the relatively minor puncture wound on his leg. The man was diagnosed with a severe case of CRPS/RSD and faced an uncertain future of massive medical bills and the probability of never returning to work. Our attorneys hired medical experts and helped the man receive the necessary treatment for his medical condition. A lawsuit was filed against the subcontractor company, and after extensive litigation and many depositions and court hearings,our attorneys were able to show that the pallet jack operator was poorly trained in how to operate the pallet jack. A Life Care Plan was developed which indicated that the man’s future medical needs, including a spinal cord stimulator and a pain pump, would cost well over one million dollars, and an economist placed the man’s future lost earnings in the high six figures. Ultimately, our attorneys were able to achieve a settlement for a significant confidential sum.
A man visiting Dallas on a business trip at a well-known hotel was seriously injured in a slip and fall incident when he slipped on moisture droplets beside a mobile bar and fell to the ground with his legs doing the splits. After returning to his home state, he had emergency surgery to attempt to repair a torn hamstring that had been ripped off the pelvic bone due to the force of the fall. Unfortunately, the man began experiencing a burning pain in his leg and groin area that was eventually diagnosed as a severe case of CRPS/RSD. Eventually, the man received a spinal cord stimulator and was recommended for a pain pump. After a lawsuit was filed, our attorneys were able to take depositions which showed that there was notice to the hotel bartenders and staff that water was on the floor and it was not wiped up prior to the man’s slip and fall. The case was then settled for a significant confidential sum.
A young woman driving home from her job as a home health nurse was involved in a multi-vehicle accident due to icy roads. After she had got out of her vehicle and was seemingly out of harms way, an 18 wheeler traveling too fast for the icy conditions lost control and jackknifed down the median of the highway and ran her over. She almost lost her foot as it was nearly torn from her leg. The severity of the injury resulted in multiple surgeries. Unfortunately, she began to develop severe burning pain in her foot and lower leg. She was diagnosed with CRPS/RSD and began medical treatment, including nerve blocks and expensive medications. After filing a lawsuit, our attorneys were able to show that the truck driver was not trained how to drive in inclement winter weather and was traveling too fast for the icy conditions. The woman eventually had a spinal cord stimulator implanted to attempt to provide pain relief from the unrelenting burning pain. At the time of the accident, she was a nurse, but due to the severe and disabling CRPS/RSD, she was found to be permanently disabled. The case was ultimately settled for a significant confidential sum.
