Captain Collins’ Search for Medical Treatment

“I would recommend The Young Firm because they’ll get you what you need and even though you can’t go back to work at least you got something help you out through the years.”

“I was very happy y’all didn’t just settle for anything. Y’all just stuck it out and y’all did what was best for me.”

“My name is Collins. I’ve been working on boats all my life since I’m 18. I’ve been on riverboats and offshore boats and this is 42 years I’ve been on the water.

Well me and my tankerman were on the barge pulling the fuel hose up and everything was going good, but the dockman pulled the hose the opposite way we were pulling and it caused me an injury which I had to get an operation on my back.

I had a ruptured disc and two bulging discs and when I called my company to try to get them to pay the hospital and all that, they wouldn’t do it. They removed the L5 and S1 and I’m still having problems with the nerves in my back. So now it’s where I get a shot every 4 months and I’m taking the medicine which is helping me but I had a little delay on the shot because a blood clot went through my lungs so I can’t get the shots right now. So I’m just living on pain medicine right now until I can get back to the shots.

I didn’t really want to sue like I said all I wanted was my hospitalization paid and everything and they wouldn’t even budge on nothing so I didn’t have no choice but to hire an attorney. So that’s when I seen The Young Firm and I called y’all. Y’all were the only attorneys I called. So I saw The Young Firm on the advertisement in the phone book and I saw an honest face that I knew I could trust.

Thing about it is you’ve got to choose someone who’s going to get you what you can get to support you the rest of your life because of your family. You know you’re injured if you’re hurting and you know you can’t work; I would recommend The Young Firm because they’ll get you what you need and even though you can’t go back to work at least you got something help you out through the years.

The Young Firm prepared me for everything, you know, during my deposition [they were] there. When it came down to the settlement, I was I was very happy y’all didn’t just settle for anything. Y’all just stuck it out and y’all did what was best for me.

The Young Firm impressed me because y’all are very professional people and y’all go out of your way to help your clients, that’s that’s the main thing in an attorney. And The Young Firm did everything I wanted done plus more. I was very impressed with y’all.

I have already recommended two people to call y’all, I don’t know if they did, but I would recommend y’all to anyone who needs a good attorney.”
