On May 9, 2017, in the small town of Joaquin in East Texas, a catastrophic excavation cave-in occurred at a job site, killing one and severely injuring others.  Kwok Daniel is honored to represent the family of Patrick Parks, who tragically died while being buried alive, trying to rescue his brother and another worker who were working down in an site in the City of Joaquin.  Patrick died trying to save his brother, Lloyd Parks and several others trapped in the deep hole.  On May 12, 2017, Rob Kwok filed a temporary restraining order enjoining the City of Joaquin from destroying and altering the work site where this event occurred.  Unfortunately, the City continued to work on the job site backfilling the excavation site with multiple truckloads of red clay, despite notice of the pending TRO from Kwok Daniel’s senior counsel, Garrett Wilson.

On May 15, 2017, the Court signed Kwok’s TRO, ceasing any additional work and freezing all machinery at the work site.
