If you are driving on I-30 or Camp Bowie or Collins, you never think you’re going to be in automobile accident. Until you are.

Imagine if this had happened to you — it did last year to one of my clients whose review of my law firm is below.

He was driving his truck on Loop 820 in Fort Worth when a Camaro racing cut him off, slammed into his rear right quarter panel, and caused him to lose control. His truck flipped over and tumbled down the interstate end-over-end four and one half times and was hurled into the concrete median. He could have been killed. He was left hanging upside strangled by his shoulder harness and was bleeding.

The young man stopped, ran up, apologized, and offered to help. My client was rushed to the ER where he was diagnosed with lacerations and various injuries.

Then the other driver’s insurance company refused to pay my client. It claimed the Camaro driver had fallen asleep at the wheel. At 4:00 in the afternoon. I was incensed. My firm went to bat, investigated the facts, got statements, worked with his doctors, slashed his medical bills, and made his insurance company pay my client a substantial amount of money.

This is what we live for. It’s been another great week at Berenson Injury Law fighting for our clients. We were honored to receive that client’s and other reviews:IMG_9615

★ In 2016 I had the unfortunate luck of being hit and injured by someone from out of state who was non-insured, driving a rental car. Everything in the previous statement made my case very difficult. Mr. Berenson and his staff fought very hard for me and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.

If you find yourself or a loved one in an unfortunate situation where a personal injury attorney is needed, I highly recommend Mr. Berenson.

 I was very satisfied with Mr. Berenson from the start to the end. Him and his staff were very helpful throughout this journey.

I would highly recommend Mr. Berenson. I was compensated way more than I expected.

Thank you Berenson Law firm.

EHAnother difficult case successfully resolved.

Sneed-truck-2-with-tape-measureBerenson Injury Law is pleased to announce that it has obtained a recovery of $750,000.

Our client crashed into a large tractor-trailer in a Fort Worth intersection. But the police report and several witnesses blamed him for his speeding and improper lookout. There were other problems that made the chance of receiving compensation poor.

Our team sprung into action. We went with our accident investigation expert to the scene, took photographs, and measured skid marks. We set up an inspection of both vehicles, downloaded black boxes, and tried to find witnesses to rebut the negative liability facts.

If I ever have to deal with anything along the lines of what I have been through previously, I would love to have him and his team along for the ride. Bill, Jessica, Andrew, and Mindy have been more than a rock for me and my family … and when it came down do it they got the job done! It was amazing watching Bill Berenson work …. such a ball of fire! From what I was able to gather a case like mine was impossible to achieve the settlement amount that awarded! My life will never be the same! 
Thank you Bill Berenson and the Berenson Law Firm!”

61815125-cartoon-illustration-about-the-mediation-process-I am proud to have successfully resolved a difficult truck collision case Friday at a mediation for a substantial amount. I wanted to thank Michael Carnahan for his excellent work.

You might not know what a mediation is or how it can help you if you have a dispute with an insurance company, so here is information that can help you understand this critical process.

What is mediation?

Mediation is a voluntary procedure where the parties to a lawsuit agree to hire a neutral third party, who is a retired judge or an experienced trial attorney, to help them resolve their impasse.

After a lawsuit is filed and the discovery of evidence has been made (and on rare occasions before suit is filed), the attorneys for the opposite parties can agree that it is time to see if they can reach an out of court settlement.

In the personal injury world, the injured persons, insurance company representatives, and their attorneys meet at a neutral site, usually the mediator’s office. He or she attempts find a number to compensate the plaintiffs for their damages that the parties believe is equitable.

The plaintiffs have already or will make an initial demand, either in a written demand or a joint meeting (rarely used now). All sides will have provided the mediator with their position papers, with key exhibits and briefing of relevant cases, weeks prior to the mediation date.

Usually the plaintiffs and defendants are far apart on what they estimate the case is worth after a jury reaches its verdict. And of course no one knows what that number will be in advance. I analyze 62 variables to help evaluate how much a jury might award in damages.

imagesYesterday I attended my first Mothers Against Driving Advisory Board meeting in Dallas. As a long-time supporter of MADD, I am glad to be able to work closer with this worthwhile organization so we can prevent drunk driving in Dallas-Fort Worth.

This is crucial. DWIs are far too common. There were over 4,000 crashes caused by drunk drivers in Dallas and Tarrant Counties last year. Tragically they took the lives of 139 people and injured over 3,000 people. This has got to stop.

Just since Saturday night, the news media reported that

This board provides direction and support to MADD, the only group trying to stop these senseless deaths and injuries.  Continue reading

IMG_8010The Fort Worth Walk Like MADD on Saturday was a painful but hopeful morning.

There were memorials left and tributes paid to those who lost their lives or have been injured due to driving while intoxicated collisions in our area.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving is the only organization that fights to keep our roads safer by eliminating DWI crashes. It has helped reduce the number of drunk driving deaths by one-half since it was started in 1980 by the mother of a young woman who was crashed into by a DWI driver.

redMotorcycle death yields $200,000, maximum amount available.

The parents of a man who died in a tragic motorcycle crash in Fort Worth obtained the total from two insurance policies. Their son was test riding a Honda when another car pulled out in front of him in Fort Worth. He had no time to react and was killed upon impact.

But the other driver’s insurance company refused to honor the claim, claiming its driver was not at fault, there was no proof of conscious pain and suffering, and other ridiculous excuses. I was about to take the case to court to court when the company paid the full amount. Its insured driver had no assets that could be seized for a further recovery of money so there was no reason to file a lawsuit.

We had also located an under insured motorist policy owned by a family member, but again the company resisted payment due to an alleged lack of coverage, etc. We prevailed again. The parents netted $150,000.00. But no amount of money could ever replace their wonderful son and this kind man.

The man’s parents, whom I had the pleasure of meeting in Colorado, were happy with our service and I was humbled by their Google review:

I will be attending Mother Against Drunk Driving’s first annual seminar for personal injury attorneys this afternoon. This is designed to teach how we can more effectively represent injured people in drunk and drugged collision cases. It is being held at the national MADD headquarters in Las Colinas.

Some of the topics being discussed include

  • Investigating crash scenes and obtaining evidence
  • Working with law enforcement, prosecutors, and Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission
  • Evaluating and prosecuting a dram shop case (where a bar or restaurant over serves a customer)
  • Suing other responsible companies
  • Resolving evidentiary problems
  • Counseling victims and their families
  • Utilizing available resources

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.
