    • Andy Payne and Dean Gresham Resolve a South Texas 18-Wheeler Case

      A trucking company refused to follow Federal Regulations and a driver was working more hours than allowed by Federal law.

    • Case: Crawford vs. Christus St. Joseph's Medical Center

      Clara Crawford was admitted to the Christus St. Joseph's Medical Center, and assigned as a patient to Dr. David H. Taylor, with little choice in the matter. Unfortunately, the personal injuries sustained by Ms. Crawford from that point forward were foreseeable, predictable and preventable, and flowed directly from David H. Taylor, M.D.'s substandard and negligent medical care.

      Ms. Crawford's personal injuries were a direct result from unnecessary medical procedures by Dr. Taylor, including performing an ERCP and precut papillotomy. Her injuries in the procedures resulted in multiple perforations of her common bile duct and duodenum. Beyond her physical suffering and her financial burdens, Ms. Crawford also spent almost an entire year bed bound in a hospital.

      The personal injury attorney carefully examined the facts in Ms. Crawford's case and was astounded to find the medical and employment history of Dr. Taylor, which included dozens of reports from fellow doctors, nurses and patients citing Taylor as:

      • dangerous
      • performing unnecessary and sometimes lethal procedures
      • lying to patients to receive informed consent
      • repeatedly deviating from the proper standard of care

      Dr. Taylor also failed to disclose to the Christus St. Joseph's Medical Center that he had previously lost his medical practicing privileges at another hospital in Arkansas for many of the same faults involved in Clara Crawford's case. Compounding matters further, even after the Christus St. Joseph's Medical Center uncovered the facts of his past employment, they failed to immediately dismiss Dr. Taylor from practicing at the hospital. Instead they extended his credentials for another year.

      After clearly outlining Dr. Taylor's history and the incidences of negligence visited upon Mrs. Crawford by Dr. Taylor and Christus St. Joseph's Medical Center, the lawsuit was resolved for a confidential amount.

    • Case: Hall vs. Crest, Lone Star HMA, Mesquite Community Hospital , Children's Medical Center of Dallas

      Jadon Hall was born on February 14, 2002. On February 18, 2003, he was admitted to Mesquite Community Hospital (“MCH”) for day surgery to remove his adenoids and insert tubes in his ears. During the procedure, Jadon suffered complications that deprived him of oxygen. Because of the seriousness of Jadon’s complications, he was transferred to Children’s’ Medical Center (“CMC”), where he suffered additional oxygen depravation during treatment. As a result of medical negligence throughout this process, Jadon suffered permanent brain damage.

      Jadon, a once exuberant and thriving toddler, had to try to learn to walk, talk and feed himself all over again. However, his injury left him unable to return to his former self and permanently affected his vision. The Halls are unsure of how much his cognitive develo pment has been affected by the injury, but an MRI scan clearly shows the damage done to his brain.

      The brain injury attorney reviewed the facts of the Hall’s case and diligently investigated the sequence of events that caused this tragedy. They found that during the procedure, anesthesia was to be provided by Jonathan Leonard Chrest, M.D., P.A. The Hall’s signed a consent form specifically indicating that the anesthetist would be Dr. Chrest or one of his associates, all of whom were “credentialed to provide anesthesia services.” Nevertheless, the vast majority of Jadon’s anesthesia was administered by a non-credentialed student nurse. Had the Halls known that Jadon’s anesthesia would be performed by a student nurse anesthetist, they would not have consented to the procedure.

      Further research by the brain injury attorney, revealed that Jadon suffered a laryngospasm, or an involuntary muscular contraction of the laryngeal cords that makes it almost impossible to breath in. This is a well known complication from anesthesia and is treated by hyperextending the patient's neck and administering assisted ventilation with 100% oxygen. In this case, nurses responded to Jadon’s condition, rather than the doctor performing the procedure, Gerald D. Friedman, D.O.

      Based on this research, the Halls made their case, asserting causes of action for fraud, assault and battery, medical negligence, negligence per se, and breach of contract. If the medical staff involved in Jadon’s procedure had followed their own processes and abided by the consent forms signed by the Halls, Jadon would not have suffered permanent brain damage.

    • Case: Lane's Gifts and Collectibles, LLC, et al. v. Google, Inc., et al., Case No. CV-2005-52-1 in the Circuit Court of Miller C

      Attorney R. Dean Gresham recently served as co-lead class counsel in a "click fraud" case against defendants Yahoo, Overture Services Inc., Time Warner, America Online, Netscape Communications Corp., Ask Jeeves Inc., Go.com, Google, Lycos Inc., Looksmart Ltd. and Findwhat.com-all of which are Internet search engines or provide web search capabilities. In the case, it was alleged that the defendants were overcharging for pay per click advertising and fraudulently charging for advertising that was not generated by consumer clicks.

      According to the original complaint:

      "This is an industry-wide conspiracy in which all search engines have worked together to develop and/or create a market which allows for over-billing and/or overcharging of businesses and/or entities which purchase online pay per click advertising."

      Upon filing for the case, two of the defendants removed the case to federal court; however, it was remanded by U.S. District Judge Harry F. Barnes. The defendants then petitioned to remain to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals; however, that action was denied and the case was again sent back to Miller County Circuit Court. Throughout the case, all defendants filed motions to have the case dismissed.

      To allow discovery to proceed, the court entered a protective order, which was appealed by the defendants. It, however, was approved. The defendants also sent a substantial amount of discovery requests to plaintiff's counsel-in some cases including more than 70 interrogatories and 70 requests for production of documents.

    • Compensation Secured for Woman Burned Over 85% of Body in Natural Gas Well Fire

      In 2002, Brower Oil & Gas Co., Inc. successfully drilled the oil and gas well known as Kirby Draw 1-4. Brower hired Derek Kelley to work as a pumper—a person that performs routine maintenance at a well site. In November, 2002, L&L Production Services, Inc. installed a wooden building over the dehydration unit (dehy) at Kirby Draw 1-4, which fully enclosed the flame arrestor and fire tube. In 2005, NATCO was hired by Brower to perform various maintenance work on the unit. As the experts in Dehy design and maintenance, NATCO was involved for the next two years working inside the Building, placed over the Dehy by L&L.

      On June 26, 2007, the dehy unit caught fire while Shannon Kelley was in the building. Shannon was trapped inside and had to pass through flames to reach the only exit door to safety. Shannon made it out of the building alive and managed to get a call out to 911. Shannon was taken by air transport from Riverton, Wyoming to Denver, Colorado with an 85% full thickness total body surface area burn. Shannon had a 122% chance of dying when she reached the University of Colorado Burn Center. She was kept in a drug induced coma for more than six months with continued sedation for another two months, underwent 49 surgical procedures. She is dependent upon others for her most basic human needs— preparing food, walking, eating, getting dressed, and going to the bathroom.

      The burn injury attorney thoroughly reviewed Mrs. Kelley’s case and identified several counts of negligence on the part of both L&L and Brower. L&L created a "permit required confined space" by placing the building over the dehy as it had limited entry and exit, had the potential for a hazardous atmosphere, and was not intended for continuous work. According to OSHA, "permit required confined spaces" pose an extreme risk that the occupant can be suffocated by a toxic substance or engulfed in flames .

      When servicing the Dehy, NATCO did recognize the Building as a serious safety hazard and recognized that the Building had the potential to: (1) engulf (2) asphyxiate and/or (3) trap an entrant. Notably, NATCO recognized the extremely dangerous nature of the Building on its first visit to the well site and knew it was a ticking time-bomb, but did nothing to correct the problem or warn anyone of the latent danger. NATCO knew of the extreme danger posed by the building and never informed Brower or Shannon. During deposition, NATCO indicated it was not a question of “if” someone got hurt, just a question of when.

      The burn injury attorney used all available resource, from family interviews and depositions to animations to document the sequence of events that were responsible for the accident. The lawsuit was resolved for a confidential amount.

    • DEAN GRESHAM RESOLVES NATIONAL CLASS ACTION ON BEHALF OF PEOPLE WITH DEFECTIVE CORRUGATED STAINLESS STEEL TUBING ("CSST'') INSTA

      After multiple homes across the nation exploded after being hit by lightning, Gresham and co-lead class counsel represented a nationwide class of persons and businesses that had dangerous and defective corrugated
      stainless steel tubing ("CSST") installed in their structures. CSST is a gas conduit that has been installed in many new construction homes and structures since 1994 to transmit natural gas throughout the structure. CSST is manufactured by Titeflex, Ward Manufacturing, OmegaFiex or Parker Hannifin. The lawsuit alleged the CSST was defective by design and was not thick enough to withstand a lightning strike, causing the gas in the line to explode, and also that the warnings and/or installation instructions were inadequate. The class action settlement was valued at over $250 million and the class was, depending on their geographic location, entitled to a substantial discount on a lightning protection system and the manufacturers agreed to significantly change their warnings and installation instructions.

    • Dean Gresham Resolves Tanker Truck Wreck Case on Behalf of the Decedent's Twin Minor Daughters and Mother

      Gresham resolved a truck wreck case where his client was killed by a reckless truck driver for Shale Tank Truck. Gresham's client, a two-time veteran of the Iraq War, took a job with Schlumberger so that he could spend more time with his twin daughters. Shortly thereafter, he was killed when a reckless truck driver crossed the double yellow line and drove an 80,000 pound tanker truck into the oncoming lane of traffic.
      On behalf of the decedent's twin daughters and his mother, Gresham filed a lawsuit against the truck driver and his employer, Shale Tank Truck. The lawsuit alleged that Shale failed to properly hire, screen and retain qualified and competent truck drivers, including Kirkpatrick, and failed to perform an appropriate background check of Kirkpatrick. Had Shale done a proper background check, its director of safety testified that Kirkpatrick would have never been hired because of his criminal background and unsatisfactory driving history. Unfortunately, no one at Shale bothered to properly screen Kirkpatrick before he was turned loose behind the wheel of an 80,000 pound tanker truck.

    • Dean Gresham Settles 18-Wheeler Case on Behalf of Brain Injured Victim

      Libby Kellum suffered a traumatic brain injury as the result of a truck wreck. Ms. Kellum, a recent college graduate, was heading north bound on US 75 north of Dallas. An orange Allied Vans Freightliner, driven by Enesi Akauola, swerved into her lane and when Kellum took evasive action to avoid being struck, her car was hit from behind by Popejoy, a known reckless driver with a
      history of alcohol abuse, driving a blue Freightliner owned and maintained by Gordon Sevig Trucking Company, Inc. (GSTC). Libby was immediately taken by helicopter to Parkland hospital and her parents were contacted with the devastating news. Libby spent several weeks in a coma, several more weeks in rehab and was released to her family to adapt to her new life. A once athletic and bright girl, Libby lost her coordination and physical confidence to participate in many sports. Her injury also affected her mental faculties. She was extremely indecisive, no longer able to read and comprehend a simple book, struggled to organize and plan daily life, and
      struggled to remember appointments. Her parents recognized that she would never be the same person that she was before the accident, and that she may never be able to get a job and be self-sufficient.

      During discovery, the attorneys uncovered major issues with Popejoy's driving record, including citations for several OWls, reckless driving, driving on the wrong side of the road and improper passing. Further investigation revealed that the GSTC did not perform a proper background check; a clear violation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Had the proper background
      check been performed, GSTC could not have hired Popejoy due to his poor driving record and past OWls.

    • DEAN GRESHAM SETTLES TOXIC EXPOSURE IN THE WORKPLACE CASE AGAINST AIRPLANE PART MANUFACTURER AND CHEMICAL MANUFACTURER

      Jeremy Jackson, 23 at the time, worked for Aircraft Tooling, a company that refu-rbishes airplane parts. Jeremy's primary job duty was to spray aircraft parts with tungsten carbide cobalt using a flame sprayer HVOF gun. Gresham filed a lawsuit alleging that Jackson's employer (who did not subscribe to Texas worker's compensation insurance) did not provide him with any training on the toxic cobalt that he was exposed to for hours each day nor did they provide him with appropriate protective gear or an airline respirator. The lawsuit also alleged that the chemical manufacturer failed to provide adequate warnings to the end users of the product, like Jackson, of the hazards of spraying the chemical and the safety measures needed to prevent unsafe exposure.

      Over time, Jeremy's health deteriorated. He had chest pains, coughing fits, and shortness of breath. After three years working in this position, Jeremy was diagnosed with hard metal lung disease. This disease is most commonly related to concentrations of cobalt in the lungs and is even referred to as "cobalt lung." His lung capacity was diminished to 32% and he had lost thirty pounds. Doctors informed Jeremy that the only way he was going to survive was to have a double lung transplant. At the age of 26, Jeremy had to have this serious operation to save his life. Since work was the only place where Jeremy was exposed to any form of cobalt, he knew that his job had caused his condition, and that this was a workplace injury.

      The lawsuit alleged that they coerced employees into signing release forms and misrepresented OSHA inspection reports. All of these measures were to
      cover up any responsibility for Jeremy's condition.

    • Tractor-Trailer Crosses Median, Strikes Pickup / SUV Case: Contreras vs. KV Trucking

      On Monday, September 20, 2004, Joel Mendoza Ruiz, Hector Zapata Ruiz, Marcos Esparza Esparza, German Esparza Velasquez, Candelario Esparza and Javier Esparza were passengers in a Ford pickup driven by Manuel Esparza, traveling southbound on U.S. Highway 75 outside Sherman, Texas. The gentlemen were returning home from work after having spent the day on a roofing job in Sherman, Texas. At or about the same time, Miroslaw Janusz Jozwiak was operating a 1999 Freightliner tractor and pulling a 1997 Trailmobile 53-foot trailer in the right lane of northbound U.S. Highway 75.

      Jozwiak's tractor-trailer, suddenly, left the right northbound lane in which he was traveling, crossed over the left northbound lane, veered across the grassy median into oncoming traffic in the southbound lanes of Highway 75, and struck the vehicle driven by Esparza.

      Manuel Esparza, Joel Mendoza Ruiz, Hector Zapata Ruiz, Marcos Esparza, German Esparza Velasquez all died as a result. Candelario Esparza and Javier Esparza survived, but sustained permanent catastrophic injuries.

      Following the wreck, Defendant Jozwiak sought to conceal certain personal effects. Investigators eventually recovered medications from Jozwiak's briefcase which indicate he may have been intoxicated or incapacitated and not capable of responsibly operating his vehicle. Further, Jozwiak suffered from a mental disorder.

      Investigators also determined that the tractor-trailer's brakes were grossly out of adjustment and in a severe state of disrepair.

      Defendant Jozwiak was charged with multiple counts of criminally negligent homicide on September 21, 2004.

      During the course of this case, the truck wreck attorney diligently investigated all details and unearthed the facts that resulted in substantial compensation for the victims and their families.

    • Trinity Industries Settles Guardrail Suit

      Trinity Industries Settles Guardrail Suit on Eve Of Trial Law360, Dallas (May 16, 2017, 10:03 PM EDT) ­­ Trinity Industries Inc. told a Dallas County judge Monday it had settled a product liability case over its allegedly defective guardrails the day before trial was set to begin in the suit brought by a North Carolina man who lost both his legs in a highway accident. Jay Scott Traylor had alleged Trinity’s negligence caused a guardrail on I­40 in North Carolina to pierce through the driver’s side floor, severing his legs. Had the guardrail met the design specifications it had won federal approval for, it would have absorbed the impact of Traylor’s car, the February 2014 complaint alleges. The suit sought compensatory damages for Traylor’s medical care, lost wages, injuries and mental anguish, as well as punitive damages and pre­ and post­trial judgment interest. Read more here.

    • Truck Accident Case

      In 2006, Fred Blagg was killed by a reckless truck driver for Shale Tank Truck. The truck driver made a conscious decision to cross the double-yellow line and drive an 80,000 pound tanker truck into the lane of oncoming traffic. In an effort to avoid the 80,000 pounds of steel coming straight toward him, Mr. Blagg drove his vehicle into the bar ditch on the side of his lane of travel. Nevertheless, the tanker truck chased Mr. Blagg's truck down into the bar ditch where the two trucks collided. Mr. Blagg died several hours later.

      Mr. Blagg was a two-time veteran of the Iraq War. He was honorably discharged from the military in 2005 and took a job with Schlumberger so that he could spend more time with the loves of his life-his twin girls, Hannah and Haelee (ages seven years old at the time).

      On behalf of Mr. Blagg's twin daughters and his mother, Gresham filed a lawsuit against the truck driver and his employer, Shale. The lawsuit alleged that Shale failed to properly hire, screen and retain qualified and competent truck drivers, including Kirkpatrick, and failed to perform an appropriate background check of Kirkpatrick. Had Shale done a proper background check, its director of safety testified that Kirkpatrick would have never been hired because of his criminal background and unsatisfactory driving history. Unfortunately, no one at Shale bothered to properly screen Kirkpatrick before he was turned loose behind the wheel of an 80,000 pound tanker truck.

      The firm's experienced truck wreck lawyer was able to deftly navigate the complexities of this case and effectively prove negligence on the part of both Kirkpatrick and Shale Tank Truck. As a result, a confidential settlement was reached, wherein the family received an amount to cover pain and suffering and lost future wages.

An orange Allied Vans Freightliner, driven by Enesi Akauola, swerved into her lane and when Kellum took evasive action to avoid being struck, her car was hit by Mr. Popejoy, a known reckless driver with a history of alcohol abuse, driving a blue Freightliner owned and maintained by Gordon Sevig Trucking Company, Inc. (GSTC). A reasonably prudent driver would have been able to avoid colliding with Ms. Kellum's vehicle.

      Libby was immediately taken by helicopter to Parkland hospital and her parents were contacted with the devastating news.

Further investigation revealed that the GSTC did not perform a background check; a clear violation of federal law.

      The firm's truck wreck attorney worked diligently to accurately document all the facts in this case and prove the negligence of Mr. Popejoy and the gross negligence of GSTC. As a result, Gresham and Mr. Popejoy and GSTC entered into a confidential settlement.
