"I would recommend Greg. He was very honorable and I could trust him with matters because he knew what he was doing. He made himself available and was very professional."
Ricky Hicks was married to the love of his life, Barbara Hicks, for over 32 years when he died suddenly in his home after receiving Botox injections for headaches.
A combination of pain medications and Botox injections resulted in his death.
The headaches were a result of a fractured neck he received in a four-car chain-reaction motor vehicle collision he was involved in nearly a year earlier. Ricky suffered permanent headaches due to the fracture. His doctors prescribed various pain medications, including Botox injections, to help control the headaches. Ultimately, the combination of medications resulted in his death.
Barbara Hicks had accompanied her husband to various medical appointments throughout his recovery. She knew he suffered extremely from the headaches and hoped he would have good relief from the Botox injection. The last thing she expected was that the injection would lead to his death.
A grieving family seeks legal counsel.
Ricky Hicks was 51 years old when he died without warning. His family was left grieving with questions about the cause of his death. They contacted a local attorney in their area who, in turn, consulted with and brought Greg Zeuthen into the case.
Barbara Hicks said, “Greg was very knowledgeable, professional and handled everything wonderfully. It was very good to have the help and took a big load off of my shoulders. He was great.”
Corporation held fully responsible for wrongful death.
The corporation that caused the crash initially claimed it was not responsible for Mr. Hicks’ death. However, Greg contacted qualified medical experts, including Mr. Hicks’ treating doctor, who confirmed the use of both narcotic pain medication and Botox suppressed Mr. Hicks’ ability to breathe, which ultimately resulted in his death. Relying on Oregon law Greg was able to hold the corporation fully responsible for Mr. Hicks’ death.
Barbara Hicks: “I would recommend Greg. He was very honorable and I could trust him with matters because he knew what he was doing. He made himself available and was very professional. Greg answered every question I had, and questions I didn’t have. He prepared me and my daughters very well to know what to expect. It was so comfortable to speak with him and to work with him. The results were the best I could expect and he was sympathetic to the case. He explained the situation very well so I could understand where the results ended up. He helped prepare me for my deposition and the legal portion of the problems we were having.”
