"I never thought I would ever get hurt on the job when my crew had the best safety record of the company I worked for. We worked on the Ashley Phosphate overpass at I-16. We were the foundation drilling contractor for the overpass expansion. My crew (drillers) was ready for lunch and the crane crew working on removing a boom section when they had trouble dismantling a 40 ft section from the crane. My crew went to help and without my knowledge they skipped steps to make the job faster. I was a certified crane operator, driller and heavy equipment operator that was ready to move on to being the superintendent of my own jobs of Bridges, Communication towers, Buildings and so forth that needed deep core drilled foundations. The boom that weighed 36000 lbs ended up collapsing on my head and folding me like an accordion and was a horrific sight, too many injuries to list. My wife and I live in Seminole Florida, I worked all over the country spending 28 days on the road and only coming home when I could for 12 years to support my family. I loved my job and my wife enjoyed traveling to see me. It was something we accepted so she could raise our daughter and be there for her. I missed a lot of special moments but when I was home I always spent as much time with her that I could. All of that changed in one second. I was the only person to survive out of 5 crane accidents that year of 2003 when the new bridge over the Cooper River project was being built on Highway 17 from Charleston to Mount Pleasant. My life changed forever that day and my family needed an advocate to protect our best interests and that's where we found Mr Richard Hricik PA and his staff. Mr. Hricik protected my interests and gave us the best advice - when we leaned on his shoulders he was there with no hesitation or reservations. Now after 12 years I still have questions and need his help with workers' compensation and his staff and Mr. Hricik still answers or fights for my rights on an excellent time frame. I consider Mr. Hricik not just as my attorney but as my friend and family. I would tell anyone whom asked me for advice for legal advocate that the only one I would call is Mr. Richard Hricik P.A. and I stand by my words, He is the best lawyer I ever had the pleasure to represent me and my family. If anyone ever had doubts just call me - Mr. Hricik has my permission to give my number to anyone who needs advice on this issue."
