As a commercial truck driver, Ricardo had worked for several companies in the Kenedy, Texas, area. And when the oil boom hit South Texas, he started driving for oilfield services companies. In 2012, he was at a rig site, pumping mud out of a pit when another oilfield service truck pulled up next to his. The workers from the other company started washing out their truck with a hose when one of the employees opened the wrong valve and water and concrete shot out at high velocity, striking Ricardo in the back of the head. He was taken to the ER and diagnosed with a concussion and a neck sprain.
He hired a law firm out of San Antonio when, after being treated under workers comp for three months, he was diagnosed with esophogeal cancer and his comp claim was determined to be closed. He couldn't determine if what he was feeling was because of the cancer or because of the accident. After thirteen months of no progress, Ricardo decided he needed to find another firm to handle his case. He found our firm after researching cases similar to his. After talking to Vuk, he hired us to pursue a third party case against the oilfield services company that employed the three men responsible for his injuries.
Curtis took over his case and worked it up. After Ricardo went into remission, he was still having back pain, and saw a doctor who said he needed a lumbar decompression surgery to fix his back issues. Although Ricardo did not want the surgery since he knew several family members and friends who had suffered terribly after having spine surgery, the back problem helped support their claim that his injuries had not gone away when he was diagnosed with cancer in 2012. Curtis mediated Ricardo's case in January 2015, where he was able to obtain a satisfactory settlement for Ricardo.
Ricardo, thankful for finally obtaining a settlement in his case, sat down to say, "I highly recommend them to anybody."
