Jeff worked in a scrapyard dismantling offshore cranes. On the day of the accident, Jeff and a coworker were in the process of rigging an out-of-service crane to a truck crane. The crane fell, with the two workers plummeting 25-30 feet onto the boom. Jeff’s life flashed before his eyes. Had he been standing 1 foot to the left or right, he likely would have been killed.
Scans showed that Jeff suffered multiple herniated discs. The next day, Jeff began experiencing extreme pain and loss of mobility in his back, shoulders, and neck. Jeff was unsure if he’d ever be able to work or take care of his family again.
Jeff hired Patrick Daniel Law after working with an attorney who was unable to make headway in his case. We treated him like family from the start, and ultimately recovered more than he would have been entitled to under workers’ comp by proving that his supervisor (a) worked for another company and (b) that the supervisor’s negligence led to Jeff’s injuries.
