Partners, Cody A. Dishon and Mark Sparks of the Ferguson Law Firm, are proud to announce a substantial recovery for an injured worker involved in a serious workplace accident. The case was first rejected by another injury law firm and then handled by another lawyer before any involvement from Mr. Dishon and Mr. Sparks. Mr. Dishon states “Although a very tough case both legally and factually, I believed in our client and the case. The evidence, in this case, boiled down to a classic he said, she said. We caught the company in several major lies, establishing the company’s witness statements had no credibility whatsoever. The company not only blamed our client for everything, it downplayed the seriousness of the injuries and never reported the incident to OSHA.” Mr. Dishon added, “Mark and I made a great team on the case. We were dealt with a cold case that happened years ago. His expertise helped us win the case. We are honored to have represented our client and make a difference. Our client will receive the medical care needed for the remainder of his life.”
Industrial accidents occur frequently and impact hard working people every year. These workers are generally the breadwinners for their family. It is very important after a major accident to get the medical attention you need and preserve all evidence. Company and insurance lawyers are usually on-site moments following serious accidents, taking witness statements and gathering evidence.
The Ferguson Law Firm continues to be nationally recognized for record-breaking recoveries made on behalf of workers involved in major workplace accidents. Other recent workplace settlements and verdict include Paul “Chip” Ferguson, managing partner, chemical burn case for $4.5 million dollars and another $2.3 million-dollar recovery in a wrongful death suit for an injured worker at a timber facility.
