Justice for Oil & Gas Injury Victims
More TV Documentaries
On a beautiful Wyoming afternoon, June 26, 2007, a 30-foot fiery flame erupted from a gas well savagely burning Shannon Kelley, a 36-year-old mother and self-employed oil well pumper. Shannon suffered 3rd degree burns on 85% of her body, and then drove 20 miles to the crest of a hill to call 911. You will hear the 911 call, a mesmerizing plea for help. Shannon was in a medically induced coma for 8 months to help her recover from all her injuries. To date her medical bills top $6 million, and over her lifetime she is expected to spend another $12 million. Joel Fineberg and Dean Gresham, partners at Fineberg:Gresham, fought for Shannon in a classic case of David versus a corporate Goliath, and won her a substantial, confidential out-of-court settlement.
