Have you or a loved one been involved in a construction site or industrial accident? Has the accident led to a disabling personal injury? Has it caused the wrongful death of a family member?
Workers at oil fields, factories, construction sites and other similar settings have the right to expect a high level of safety. They have the right to expect to be able to go home to their families in the same condition they arrived at work.
When that expectation is not met because of an act of negligence, the victim has rights. At Caddell & Chapman, our attorneys are available to help workplace accident victims seek full compensation.
Investigating Industrial and Construction Accident Claims
At our law firm, we understand the importance of thorough investigation of these claims. From the very beginning, we will take great care to fully review all of the details. We will take the necessary steps to assess who is at fault, whether it is an employer who failed to maintain reasonable safety standards or the manufacturer of a piece of defective equipment.
We will not only investigate to determine the target of our lawsuit, but to gather all of the required details to support our lawsuit.
When we take our case to the opposition, they will see that we have come prepared. We are aggressive. We are creative. If they do not provide the compensation we request, they will see how aggressive and creative we are in the courtroom.
A Hands-On Approach to Obtaining Results
From our office in Houston, Texas, we handle workplace accident claims on a nationwide basis.
With our hands on and aggressive approach, we have had a long list of successful results and recoveries for our clients in recent years:
Caddell & Chapman represented the mother and father of a 23 year old man who suffocated to death when he became engulfed in grain while working at the Port Elevator grain facility in Brownsville, Texas. The employer failed to take adequate safety precautions or provide safety equipment which would have prevented the young man's death. The family elected to try the case to a jury when Port Elevator offered only $50,000 to settle the case. In Cameron County, Texas, Caddell & Chapman obtained a $2.8 million verdict for the family, which is currently on appeal. (Obviously, the fact that the case is on appeal means that the Firm's client may not receive funds from this case if it is overturned on appeal and, of course, any recovery would be subject to attorneys' fees and costs.)
Also in South Texas, Caddell & Chapman prosecuted claims against a deceased man's employer after the company's grossly negligent policies and business practices had endangered the man's health and ultimately caused his death by electrocution. The firm obtained a favorable settlement for the worker's family.
Caddell & Chapman also handled a Dallas County action arising from a construction accident. Under the weight of wet concrete, an elevated platform collapsed on top of a construction worker resulting in injuries that ultimately caused his death. In less than a year after the incident, the firm resolved most of the family's claims, and the firm successfully concluded the litigation within 18 months of the accident.
Closer to the firm's home office, Caddell & Chapman represented 26 workers who received significant injuries in the deadly explosion at the British Petroleum plant in Texas City, Texas on March 23, 2005. All 26 clients of Caddell & Chapman recovered favorable, but confidential settlement terms.
