This philosophy has been the backbone of my practice in getting fair compensation for each client.

Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer
My job is to represent victims of wrongful death and personal injuries caused by the carelessness or negligence of another. Sometimes the responsible party is an individual such as the other driver in a car wreck. Other times, the at-fault party may be a corporation such as a trucking company; a supermarket or property owner where you fell; or your employer in a work related injury. From the very beginning of my representation, my office will investigate the specific facts of each case and determine who may be legally responsible for your accident. Then, all relevant information will be gathered of your damages such as medical bills, lost wages, physical impairment, pain and suffering, and mental anguish. In a wrongful death case, a client may also be entitled to additional recovery for loss of future earnings, financial support, and the loss of society of the deceased victim.
Once all the available evidence is obtained, I will prepare a settlement claim packet to submit to the insurance company. This packet would include any relevant information and documents including accident reports, photographs, witness statements, doctor reports, medical bills, and pay check stubs. After the claim packet is reviewed by the insurance adjuster, my office will contact the adjuster to discuss possible settlement of your injury claim. If a settlement can be reached, then your accident attorney will handle the process of collecting your money and closing your case. If the parties cannot settle, then a lawsuit must be filed in order to enforce your legal rights to recovery.
Auto accidents probably represent some of the most common causes of serious injuries. Most car wrecks can be attributable to many factors such as driver inattention, speeding, and drunk driving. The D/FW metroplex is a maze of interstate and major highways such as Interstate 20 and Interstate 30 which connect the two cities, Interstate 35E and 35W which connects Dallas and Fort Worth with Denton. If you drive in the DFW area, then you will probably be involved in an auto collision at some point in your life. If you are injured in a car accident, then you need an experienced accident attorney who knows his way around the roads and courtrooms of Dallas, Ft. Worth and surrounding communities.
Anyone who drives a vehicle in North Texas area can appreciate the special dangers large trucks can pose when involved in a collision. They travel at about the same speeds as other automobiles on the road, but are more difficult to maneuver and can weigh 80,000 pounds or more. Likewise, collisions involving an 18 wheeler or other large commercial vehicles are far more likely to cause more serious injuries. That is why semi-truck drivers are required to have more training and meet higher standards of safety than the typical motorist. The tractor-trailer truck itself also has many compliance standards which have to be met such as routine maintenance and proper securing of its load. Therefore, you need the skill and experience of a trucking accident attorney to investigate all the facts and circumstances surrounding your case.
As the operator of a motorcycle, you take far more precautions than the average driver. First, you probably wear a helmet and other protective equipment. Additionally, there are special qualifications that have to be met in order to obtain a motorcycle license. This is because motorcycle wrecks pose a much higher risk of causing death or serious bodily injuries to the rider. Even though motorcycle operators take these precautions, they are still extremely vulnerable to the carelessness and neglect of other motorists on streets and highways. This is especially true when operating a motorcycle in a large city like Dallas or Fort Worth. If you were hurt while riding a motorcycle, you owe it to yourself to make sure your case is being handled by an experienced motorcycle accident attorney.
Drunk Driver Accidents
The D/FW area is filled with a variety of restaurants, bars, and night clubs for our entertainment. However, there are many who don’t know their limit, which results in drunk driving accidents. A drunk driver puts everyone else on the road at risk. Research shows that drivers are more likely to be involved in a collision after consuming alcoholic beverages even though the driver feels fine. In Texas, you are considered legally intoxicated if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08 or greater. Unfortunately, too many people still choose to get behind the wheel after drinking too much. Drunk driving poses a much higher risk of causing serious injury. If you have been hit by a drunk driver, don’t be victimized again by the insurance company. Get the proper legal representation.
Other Personal Injury Cases We Handle
How long do I have to file my case?
In most instances, a personal injury case has a two-year statute of limitations. That means that you must either file your suit or settle your claim within that time period or else your rights will be forever lost. That does not mean you should wait until the last minute. Rather, you need to hire a lawyer as soon as possible so that there is more than enough time to investigate and develop your case. Additionally, if you wait too long to hire a lawyer, then it might be hard to find one later since all or part of your case may become stale. The way to avoid this is to retain an experienced accident and injury lawyer that you can trust.
