Partners Cody A. Dishon and Jane S. Leger, and Javier Cabanillas of the Ferguson Law Firm, obtained a multi-million dollar settlement for a worker involved in an oil rig explosion. The gentleman suffered significant burns and was immediately life-flighted where he remained hospitalized for approximately two months.
Mr. Dishon added, “The family called me several weeks after the explosion seeking help. I made a promise to the family that our firm would fight for answers. And we did that. We discovered that the explosion was a direct result of another company’s negligence and never stopped until the company accepted full responsibility. Had safety been a priority for the company, the explosion would have never occurred.”
“We hired the best engineers and experts to determine why the explosion happened. We fought against every defense and obtained the best result for our client. The company was forced to exhaust all its insurance money available.,” Jane Leger stated.
Mr. Dishon and Mrs. Leger, along with Javier Cabanillas, served as counsel for the client. “The legal work required to obtain this recovery was tremendous. I like to think that Jane, Javier and I provided that work for this very deserving client. Equally important, my paralegal, Jessica Burkett, stood shoulder-to-shoulder with us to deliver an exceptional result for our client. None of us are afraid of hard work or challenging cases.” Mr. Dishon said.
