I got injured in a natural gas explosion in Mathias, West Virginia, in a garage, due to a faulty pipeline, or a pipeline fitting. A friend of the family that's a member of the Pipeliners Union, referred us, or referred Mike Shelton to us, and he represented us in this case. It was four of us, actually, that got burned -- myself, my father, an employee, and a customer. We were all represented by Mike Shelton. He held our hand through the whole work deal. I think it took like two years. And he even provided financial support to one of the members of the case, through the whole ordeal to keep him and his family afloat. He was good to my mom because she was basically by herself. He called us. He kept us informed of everything. We were in constant contact with him. Third degree burns all over, my head, my arms, my back, under my arms, anything that was exposed that didn't have clothing on. It took two years, but we had an excellent outcome. We were all very satisfied. I don't work any longer. I'm retired and comfortably thanks to him and the outcome of this case. They knew everything about the pipeline, and how it was assembled, and bringing in experts, actual metallurgic experts, to test the structure of the pipe, and they found this fracture in the pipe, in the union or coupling where the pipe went together, and it hadn't thread it all the way in, and it was mind-blowing. All the detail, this pipe had been on the ground like 30 years. As far as the medical and everything, there was no need to worry about the medical expenses or anything, that was all settled through the case. We were pointed in the right direction to do everything. Everything was taken care of.
