In January a brother and sister were driving on the north side of Fort Worth when a young man ran a stop light and crashed into their car shown here. They went to the emergency room the next day and were diagnosed with strains and sprains of their necks and backs. They were then treated by a chiropractor.
My firm just resolved their claims for the full amounts of the drunk driver’s insurance policy of $60,000.00. I was going to file a lawsuit if the company continued to balk. We then slashed my clients’ medical bills, legal fees, and expenses and today they received $35,600.00.
Now we are proceeding to obtain additional funds from their underinsured motorists policy. I only wish that we could have proved a dram shop case against a bar or restaurant if we could have proved they had over served the drunk.
This is hardly the largest case we have handled in the past month but is discussed to show what a personal injury lawyer does on a daily basis — to get the maximum compensation for injured people.
The clients were pleased with our services. The young woman graciously wrote this five star review:
Mr.Berenson worked on my case and both me and my brother were pleased with the outcome. Thank you again Mr.Berenson for the outstanding job and we will definitely tell others about you.
DWI Is Far Too Common
The drunk driving problem in Texas is out of control. We are number one in fatalities caused by drunk drivers every year, with 1,323 Texans dying last year.
And it should be sobering that 10,265 Americans died in alcohol related crashes last year.
I represent too many people and their families after they have been crashed into by people who DWI. The results from the often high speed wrecks are sometimes horrifying.
These car crashes are preventable or at the very least, should not happen as frequently. We need more education, more Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and law enforcement preventive measures, stronger laws, more criminal penalties and education, and yes, more civil lawsuits to get the message out that you cannot drink and drive.
What Can You Do If You Have Been Injured Due To A DWI Collision?
I would suggest you visit with a personal injury lawyer so that he or she can explain how the legal system works and how you can get paid back for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. The first meeting is free.
I have represented North Texas residents injured by drunk drivers for the past 37 years. More information about those services is here.
I know what you are going through and am here to fight for you. I will explain how the process works, get you to a doctor who can heal your injuries, work with your health insurance and other companies to get your bills paid, and demand that the drunk driver’s insurance company pay every penny available. Also I will try to get additional money from other sources and reduce your medical bills.
I certainly hope you are never involved in car wreck but if this has happened to you, please contact us here.
