Some of the Most Notable Cases
- Our firm has represented individuals who were injured by co-workers while on the job. Most notably, this firm reached a large settlement with a Fortune 500 Company when the suburban, in which one of its employee was a passenger, rolled after the driver fell asleep. We brought suit to due the severe fatigue of the entire crew and alleged the brain injury suffered by our client was easily avoidable by busing the crew. In this same case, we discovered a faulty airbag and seat-belt and brought a product liability case against the manufacturer of the suburban. The co-employee case settled two months before the trial of the matter and the product liability claim settled just prior to filing suit.
Oilfield injuries- Our firm has also represented many individuals in oilfield accidents which resulted in personal injury and death. The injuries range from a finger crush case when a Derrickhand had his index finger crushed by the tongs on a drilling rig. He was struck in the head and chest by a pipeline pig during the retrieval process. Confidential settlements were reached in every case.
Mesothelioma- Our firm is presently representing several families regarding the loss of their loved ones due to exposure to asbestos which resulted in the deadly cancer, mesothelioma. The exposure occurred while working at the local Trona mines. Claims have been brought against many Fortune 500 companies to obtain compensation for the wrongful-death of those who are affected and their families.
Bus rollover- In the early morning hours, dozens of workers were being transported by bus to an oilfield construction site near Opal, Wyoming when the driver of the bus fell asleep and rolled the bus. The driver of the bus tested positive for methamphetamine at the time of the rollover. This firm represented several injured passengers who received substantial compensation for their injuries.
Roof crush- Our firm represented an individual who was rendered a quadriplegic when the car he was riding in rolled on Interstate 80. A product liability lawsuit was filed against General Motors for the defective design and construction of the automobile. A confidential settlement was reached.
