18 WHEELER ACCIDENT
I was paralyzed when an 18 wheeler ran into the back of the van I was a passenger in. Unfortunately the truck continued after striking us and ran into another car killing two people. When we learned the trucker only had a million dollars in coverage the attorney I originally hired introduced me to Mr Caballero. He hired a team of investigators and engineers to investigate every aspect of the accident. He was able to prove the brakes on the trailer the trucker was pulling were defective and bring in additional insurance. He was also able to prove the seat in the van was defective.
Mr Caballero actually purchased a similar van and and filmed it being crushed to prove the calculations of our engineers was correct. A month before trial the defendants settled for millions of dollars. Now I have the money to pay for the help I need. Im very happy I met Rick and his team.
OIL RIG ACCIDENT
Rick helped me when I was injured in an accident aboard a jackup rig off the coast of Brazil. My employer paid me my full salary for a year since I was seriously injured and had two back surgeries. When they cut me off the first attorney I spoke with said my rights had expired. Rick explained that I was a Jones act seaman and had a longer time to file suit. He took on my former company and proved the rig was defective. A week before trial the company finally settled. I was very impressed with how thorough Rick was in working on my case. He thought of every detail. Im convinced the company settled for more than anyone thought they would because they knew we were well prepared and ready for trial.
I was injured in an auto accident at a traffic circle in Tangipahoa Parish. Since there was very little damage to my vehicle no one took my case seriously until Rick became involved. I was referred to him by a doctor he represented in the past and Im so grateful for the referral and for Rick.
He proved my injury was a result of the accident and obtained the one million dollar policy of the man that ran into me.
I was burned over 58 Percent of my body with 3rd degree burns when an industrial paint booth I was using to coat oil field pipe exploded. Other lawyers told me all I had was a worker’s compensation claim. Mr Caballero investigated my claim fully and was able to get me millions against the plant and the manufacturer of the booth for their fault in my injury.
18 Wheeler Accident
I was traumatized when a big truck smashed into our pickup killing my co worker and injuring my knee. After the accident I made a quick physical recovery and was able to return to work. I suffered horrible flashbacks and nightmares of the accident and of seeing my co worker burn to death. Rick took my claim seriously and obtained over nine hundred thousand dollars for me.
I was injured when a ride share driver slammed on his brakes and caused an injury to my back. The service denied my claim saying there was no collision. Rick helped me get the medical care I needed and settled my case for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
I was injured when a bouncer wrongly threw me on the ground. My injury was made worse when I was ignored by the police. Mr Caballero fought for me and obtained millions of dollars at trial of my case.
Plant Explosion- Burn Injury
I was injured when a plant exploded in the Baton Rouge area. I was burned over fifty per cent of my body. Mr Caballero sued in Texas for me and obtained a settlement of well over ten million dollars.
I was burned over fifty percent of my body in a fire in New Orleans. Everyone said it was my fault. Rick fought hard for me and settled my case for over five million dollars.
My wife died as a result of negligence by a doctor in Hammond Louisiana. After a medical review panel cleared the doctor Mr Caballero did not give up. He took our case to trial and win a 2.46 million dollar jury verdict. My daughters and I will always be grateful to him.
