Went into work as usual, got tools out, just ready to go to work. We heard a horrendous loud noise that scared the crap out of us. It blew up twice. It blew up the first time and everybody kind of freaked out and started looking around trying to figure out what the hell is going on. It blew again and I just took off. I just remember, because I knew the helicopters and the news will be going off and my wife will be freaking out, so I had about 30 seconds.
I was able to use my phone, and I called my wife for like a few seconds. I just said “Hey, plant blew up. I'm okay. Don't worry. Call you later. Love you.” For like eight hours I couldn't talk to my wife. At first, I didn't know how it was going to go.
At the end of the day, I'm glad that I had Arnold & Itkin there to fight for me. Whenever I talk to some of these other guys who had other people representing them, they were like “You're getting help with that?” They couldn't understand how I was getting help with things and they weren't.
I've heard of so many people getting hurt and saw people get hurt—mangled. A lot of things happened and nobody's gotten anything. With the fact that I was able to get what I did, I was just very pleased with it because I wasn't expecting to be able to take care of my family now and have things—an actual retirement that I can work on now. So it's not just about the here and now. It's about me actually securing me and my wife's future.
Arnold & Itkin is a great law firm that can help you through hard times whenever you don't know what to do. This is a blessing and this is a godsend.
