Mr. Alvarado was employed by a company that did not subscribe to workers’ compensation. Mr. Alvarado was a member of the assembly department and had not been trained in service when he was called to Muleshoe Coop to assist with a start-up of new cotton gins. He was attempting to rid green cotton from condenser rollers on a gin stand when his gin stick became stuck between the rollers.
His right hand and arm became caught in the machine and his arm was crushed up to the elbow. Mr. Alvarado developed RSD/CRPS in his arm. The Marye Law Firm P.C. worked with several experts on workplace safety and mechanical design to develop a life-care plan for Mr. Alvarado.
I got hurt on a cotton gin when the rollers on the condenser unit caught my arm and pulled me into the machine. My arm was smashed up to my elbow. I lost muscle and all my nerves and still have pain to this day. A local Lubbock lawyer dropped my case because my employer didn’t have workmen’s comp. I called Eric Marye and he worked on my case for about two years. We got real close to trial and at the second settlement meeting, my case settled for one and a half million dollars (Client received $900,000). He got my medical bills paid and I am getting a check every month from the insurance company for the rest of my life. I am definitely happy with the job Mr. Marye did for me and my family and would recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney for a serious injury.
