Our father died needlessly in a nursing home in Waco because of nursing home abuse. Jack took our case, stayed in touch with us, and, when the case did not settle, he took it to trial and won! Jack is the real deal. His decades of experience and dozens of jury trials showed. He commanded the courtroom, made the Defendant’s expert look silly and made a closing argument that sealed the case in our favor. Jack’s office was always courteous, professional, responsive and informative. If you have a serious nursing home abuse or negligence case, this law firm is the best. Really, if you have any kind of serious case involving an injury or death, this law firm would be fantastic. Great job, guys!
Our mother cared for us all of our lives. When she got sick and needed professional care, we reluctantly put her in a nursing home. They promised to take care of her. To change her, to turn her, clean her and feed her. But they didn’t. As a result, she died of infected bed sores the nursing home gave her. Jack and his law firm took our case, found the witnesses we needed and when the nursing home refused to settle for a fair number, we went to trial and won! Jack worked the case really hard. The nursing home employees all admitted it was understaffed and didn’t move my mother when they should have. In the end, we received a fair settlement. I highly recommend Jack and his law firm for any and every case, including nursing home abuse cases. They are the best.
My husband was admitted to the hospital because he was dehydrated. He was disoriented, confused and could not follow commands. Even though he was an extreme fall risk, the hospital did not take any precautions. He fell, hit his head and has never been the same. He lost his six-figure job and control over his life. We hired Modesett Williams. They worked really hard on the case. They hired medical experts, economists and life care planners. Jack Modesett was able to get the case settled for enough to care for my husband for the rest of his life. Jack and Walter have stayed in touch to see how we are all doing. We are so grateful
I was shot while trying to save a woman from being assaulted in a parking lot. As a result, I was paralyzed from my waist down. At one point, years later, I had to go to a rehabilitation facility. But they didn’t move me enough to prevent bedsores in my paralyzed legs. The bedsores became infected and I had to have my legs amputated. I hired Jack because he and his office cared for me. They let me sit in their office and talk for hours. They listened. They found the right experts and witnesses. They worked really hard to get the case settled for the right amount. Now, I have enough money to get a house, continue my education and make the best out of a hard situation. Jack Modesett made that happen. Modesett Williams is the best. Their experience and tenacity made the difference.
We cannot recommend Jack and Walter enough. Jack was the lead lawyer. He came to our house on several occasions to explain things. He always answered his phone. His staff always answered our questions. They were clear, courteous and patient. They were ready to try the case. The hospital knew it and settled. Now, my husband has enough to fix the house so he can be comfortable, have some home health care and something left over. I highly recommend these experienced, caring lawyers.
My mom died of a septic shock in a nursing home. It was completely avoidable. She had an infected bowel obstruction. The nursing home knew she was suffering and did nothing until it was too late. When I called Jack Modesett, he and his experienced staff worked the case hard and got it settled pretty fast. He sent a detailed demand letter that set out the facts and the case settled for a fair amount within a few weeks. Jack made the whole process easier that I imagined. I strongly recommend Jack and his firm.
