Garza firm secures million dollar recovery for injured client Energy transportation company settles out of court
On October 10, 2013, Mr. Vasquez was traveling eastbound on U.S. Highway 277 in Dimmit County, Texas when, after activating his turn signal, he began to pull into a private driveway.
Seconds later, a truck driven by an employee of the energy company veered off the road and violently crashed into his vehicle. Mr. Vasquez suffered severe injuries, requiring surgery and plating around his neck and spinal cord.
Shortly after the incident, Mr. Vasquez retained The Law Firm of Oscar A. Garza, PLLC to represent him for damages and bodily injuries caused by the collision. The law firm monitored him through treatment and surgery, while seeking to recover on his behalf.

After over a year of litigation, both parties agreed to a settlement. The case expenses totaled $20,828.21. After paying attorneys fees of $400,000.00, Mr. Vasquez was able to net a recovery of $579,171.79.00
