My ability to earn a living for my family was destroyed when a winch on the barge that I was working on broke causing a severe head injury. The company representative tried to get me to sign a release and waiver of my right to jury trial while I was still in the hospital. Instead, I contacted Jim Reeves. He quickly went to work and was able to prove through his investigation that the company had known for some time that the winch which was defective. He was able to negotiate a settlement for me and my family that means we never have to worry about money again. I don’t know what I would have done without him.
