Why You Need A Personal Injury Attorney
When you’re injured because of someone else’s carelessness or recklessness, you need to focus on one thing: your recovery. That’s tough to do when you’re worried about how you’re going to pay your medical bills, wondering when – or if – you’re going to be able to return to work, and how you’re going to manage your long-term care on the money you have in your savings account.
If you’re like most accident victims, you believe that the other party’s insurance company will kick in and help you out.
But unfortunately, dealing with the other party’s insurance agency on your own can result in serious losses. Insurance adjusters, while they seem caring and compassionate, really have one job – and that’s to pay you as little money as possible outside of court.
That’s why you need a tough lawyer who’s willing to negotiate on your behalf and isn’t afraid to fight for what you deserve. You need somebody in your corner who understands the seriousness of your situation and who can take the guilty party’s insurance company to court to get you the financial compensation you need to get back on your feet again.
When you’ve been injured, you have a lot on your mind – but worrying about your future shouldn’t be what’s keeping you up at night. Hiring the right personal injury lawyer gives you the peace you deserve during difficult times, and you need to know that we’re here for you.
Our firm has recovered money for hospital bills, long-term medical care, burial costs and other expenses for clients all over Dallas, and if you’re entitled to compensation after an accident, we’ll help you get it. We’re very familiar with the Dallas court system and how personal injury lawsuits work, and we’re tough negotiators who aren’t afraid to fight hard for our clients.
Most personal injury cases settle out of court when attorneys from both sides negotiate. However, sometimes insurance companies don’t want to do the right thing – and when that happens, you need to go to court and have a judge order the company to pay you the financial compensation you deserve.
A judge can order two types of damages: compensatory and punitive.
- Compensatory damages are designed to pay you back for your medical bills, prescription medications, medical devices and other losses you incurred because of the accident. The court can award compensatory damages to help pay for your lost wages and future earnings, as well as pain and suffering and emotional harm.
- Punitive damages are designed to punish the guilty party through his or her insurance company. They’re also called exemplary damages, and courts can award them when the defendant’s behavior or negligence was “over the top.”
If you’re injured in a car accident in Dallas, you may be able to file a claim against the person who caused the crash. Your injuries can range from mild to severe, or they may not show up for days or weeks after the accident. Some of the most common car accident injuries our clients have suffered include:
- Brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Organ damage
- Spinal cord injuries
You can settle out of court to get the compensation you deserve or you can file a personal injury lawsuit in court – and your attorney can help you either way. In many cases, judges order compensatory damages to cover medical bills, lost wages and future lost earnings, pain and suffering, and the loss of your property.
Federal and state laws regulate the way trucking companies operate and require drivers to carry special licenses – but when you’re in a truck accident, you don’t have time to think about those things. That’s where your attorney comes in; he’ll examine every angle of the crash, figure out what went wrong (and whether it was the trucking company or the driver’s fault, or both), and work hard to hold the responsible party accountable for your injuries.
In many cases, getting a fair settlement is extremely difficult. Your Dallas truck accident attorney will negotiate with the trucking company’s insurance agent and, if necessary, file a formal lawsuit in court to get you the compensation you deserve.
Thousands of people are injured in motorcycle accidents every year, but most don’t realize that they’re entitled to financial compensation. If you’ve been injured in this type of crash and it was someone else’s fault – even partly – you need to talk to a Dallas motorcycle accident lawyer. You could be eligible to receive money that helps pay for your medical bills, your lost wages and lost future income, and your pain and suffering; in some cases, victims of bike crashes are also entitled to additional money through punitive damages.
Your lawyer will try to negotiate a fair settlement with the other party’s insurance company. If the insurance company isn’t willing to do the right thing by offering you the settlement you deserve, your attorney can file a formal lawsuit in court so a judge can decide.
Every driver on the road owes what’s called a “duty of care” to other motorists. That means if you’re behind the wheel, you have to be reasonably careful not to hurt other people.
But drunk drivers aren’t performing their duty to keep other people safe on the roadways. In fact, they’re putting everyone in danger. A drunk driver’s carelessness and recklessness can – and does – kill.
If you’ve been injured because of a drunk driver’s dangerous actions, or if you’ve lost a loved one due to DWI, we may be able to help you get the financial compensation you deserve. Many DWI accident victims sue drunk drivers to help pay for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost earning capacity and permanent scarring or disfigurement.
You have a reasonable expectation of safety when you’re walking along Dallas sidewalks or using crosswalks in or out of the city – but a negligent driver can turn your whole world upside-down. If you’ve been involved in a pedestrian accident because a driver was distracted, drunk, speeding or failed to yield, you could be entitled to sue the driver. Poorly maintained roads and car equipment failure can also lead to devastating pedestrian accidents, and in cases like those, you may also be able to sue the vehicle’s manufacturer or the city to get the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and make up for the time you’ve lost at work. Your pedestrian accident attorney can help you if you’re entitled to compensation from any source.
Personal Injury in Dallas, Texas
Just under 1.5 million people live in Dallas, and if you count the entire DFW area, there are more than 7 million. The potential for accidents, just based on sheer numbers, is tremendous. Our busy freeways are hotbeds of dangerous driving; our shops, restaurants and public spaces have slippery floors and dangerous stairwells; construction is always popping up, and work sites aren’t always as safe as they should be. If you’ve been injured because of someone else’s negligence or carelessness, we may be able to get you the financial compensation you deserve.
Want Proof We Will Fight Hard For You?
Just see what our clients have to say:
Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe walkways. When they don’t, people get hurt – and if that’s happened to you, you may be able to take the property owner to court and win the money you need to pay for your medical care, pain and suffering, and other expenses. These compensatory damages can’t make up for what you’ve been through, but they can help prevent you from going into debt over something that wasn’t even your fault. In some cases, courts also award punitive damages to slip and fall victims; these damages are designed to punish the property owner and discourage other property owners from falling into the same bad habits of negligence. Your Dallas slip and fall attorney can negotiate with the property owner’s insurance company on your behalf, and if necessary, file a formal lawsuit in court to get you what you deserve.
Catastrophic injuries include things like:
- Birth injury
- Brain damage
- Disfigurement or permanent scarring
- Nerve damage
- Loss of limb
- Serious burns
- Spinal cord injuries
Any type of injury that affects your ability to perform everyday tasks can be considered a catastrophic injury. If you’ve suffered one or more of these types of injuries because of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you may need to talk to a catastrophic injury lawyer in Dallas right away. In many cases, these injuries result from car accidents, oilfield accidents, truck accidents and pedestrian accidents – but they can occur at any time, for any reason.
Oilfields are inherently dangerous places to work, but if you’ve been injured by your employer’s or another employee’s carelessness, you could be entitled to financial compensation. For most people, that means working with a Dallas oilfield injury attorney who’s willing to fight hard.
The fact is that hundreds of oil and gas workers are injured on the job every year – but few actually call an attorney to find out whether they’re entitled to money that helps pay their medical bills, make up for lost wages (in the past and in the future), and makes up for the pain and suffering they’ve endured. If you’ve been injured due to being caught in machinery, an equipment malfunction, an explosion, exposure to toxic chemicals or any other reason, you should talk to an attorney as soon as possible.
Nearly any type of accident has the potential to cause a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. The most common, though, are car accidents, slips and falls, truck and motorcycle accidents, construction accidents and medical malpractice. If you’ve suffered a TBI, it’s in your best interest to talk to a traumatic brain injury attorney in Dallas to find out whether you’re entitled to financial compensation that helps you pay your medical bills and covers other expenses resulting from the accident.
Any time you suffer a blow to the head, you should suspect a brain injury. It’s essential that you seek medical treatment right away, and as soon as you’re up to it, you should call an attorney.
Losing a loved one is never easy on anyone involved – and your grief is magnified when your loved one’s death was preventable because it was caused by another person or a company’s negligence or carelessness. For many people, the only recourse available is to talk to a wrongful death lawyer in Dallas who can fight hard for on your loved one’s behalf. You may have a wrongful death claim against the person or entity responsible for your loved one’s death, and you could be entitled to financial compensation for things like lost wages, loss of companionship, medical bills and funeral expenses.
Product liability claims arise when a manufacturer doesn’t create safe products. These products can range from drugs, medical devices, children’s toys and home appliances. Any time a manufacturer creates a product that’s dangerous to the person who uses it, or when a manufacturer fails to adequately warn people about the dangers it poses or fails to provide adequate usage instructions, there’s the potential for a product liability claim. If you’ve been injured by a drug, medical device or consumer product, you may want to talk to a Dallas product liability lawyer who’s willing to fight hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
Construction sites are dangerous – but even so, employers are responsible for making them as safe as possible for everyone on them. If you’ve been hurt on a job site, either because your employer didn’t follow OSHA safety standards, engaged in unsafe practices or failed to provide you with adequate protections, you could be entitled to financial compensation. The same is true if another employee’s carelessness or negligence caused your injuries.
The most common construction accident injuries include brain injuries, amputation, crush injuries, burns and falls. If you’ve suffered any of these, or any other injuries, while you were working on a Dallas construction site, you should talk to a construction accident lawyer as soon as possible.
