Our client was a swamper hired to help move drilling rigs with a pole truck. During a night move, our client was helping to move a set of stairs when a forklift ran over his leg and crushed it. The broken leg required surgery, including plates and screws, to fix it. Our client was off work for months.
The forklift driver’s employer initially denied that the accident ever happened. The Monsour attorneys tracked down receipts and paperwork proving that the injury had happened exactly the way our client described. When the company realized it could not deny that our client had been hurt, it settled for a confidential amount.
