Serious Personal Injuries
Unfortunately, some serious personal injury victims attempt to settle their claims with insurance companies without anybody to represent them. Why?
Most of the time, victims of a serious injury or death of a loved one are very vulnerable and in shock, and don’t realize what their case is really worth, or what the cost of injuries may be. Insurance companies will do their best to pay you the least, and that is why it is essential to hire a knowledgeable, experienced personal injury lawyer to assist you with:
- hospital and medical procedures
- insurance company policies
- determining what your past costs are and what future costs may be

Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents are an important area of focus for our attorneys. Texas cities like Dallas see massive amounts of vehicular traffic on a daily basis. Dallas alone is home to four major interstate highways: I-20, I-30, I-35, and I-45, plus numerous other U.S. Highways, State Highways, and Spur Routes. Fort Worth is similarly situated, with high-volume roads like Interstate 820.

Doctors and medical staff do make mistakes and medical malpractice can and does occur. Dallas boasts numerous nationally recognized hospitals and medical research facilities. However, experienced Dallas medical malpractice lawyers recognize when…
- a doctor fails to diagnose cancer or other medical conditions,
- birth injuries are caused by an obstetrician committing an error during delivery,
- an anesthesiologist provides the incorrect dose of medication during surgery.

- traumatic brain injury suffered during a construction accident

Hospitals have a duty to protect their patients, and failure to do so can be considered medical negligence. In the hospital setting, patients who fall are there because they are not able to take care of themselves and it is the hospital’s responsibility to protect their patients within reason.
