Today, Johnny Garza and I left the office to drive out to meet one of our clients. This particular client was severely injured as a result of the clear gross negligence of his employer. In fact, this client is now quadriplegic and will never be able to walk again, hold his wife, or be able to feed himself again. The only limited movement that the client still has is the ability to speak, move his head and neck, and the ability to move his right arm a bit. The client spends all day in his electric wheelchair with his wife at his side 24/7. While this client cannot use his right hand to grip anything, he can use it to move the joystick on his wheelchair with his palm and a tool that he has tied around his right hand. This is his only means of independent movement.
This client called last night to let us know that his electric wheelchair is no longer working properly and that he has been confined to his bed. Without his electric wheelchair, this client will be forced to remain in his bed staring at the ceiling and not be able to interact with the family he once provided for. Mr. Garza and I went to the client’s home and transported his wheelchair to a repair facility here in Houston. This type of commitment to the client is the reason that I wanted to join Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner. At no other firm have I seen, or even heard of, this type of mentality towards the client.
At the end of the day, most attorneys work hard for their clients. The attorneys at Abraham, Watkins, work hard to improve the lives of their clients – not to improve an insurance company’s bottom line. We all strive to make a positive impact in the lives of our clients. It truly is about helping our clients.
