Berenson Injury Law’s year in review

This photo from a lawsuit we are working on aptly depicts 2020. Between the coronavirus, economic hardships, political turmoil, street protests, and environmental disasters, by the end of the year we all felt battered and bruised. The year seemed like a never-ending series of horrific high-speed pileups caused by extremely drunk guys in enormous trucks.

And to make matters worse for thousands of people, car and truck wrecks continued unabated in North Texas. When the quarantine forced many people to stay home, there should have been fewer collisions. Unfortunately that didn’t happen. And ironically, with roads being less crowded, some idiotic drivers chose to go even faster and cause ever more injuries and fatalities.

Bill Berenson Listed For Seventh Year In a Row

FORT WORTH, TX –  Berenson Injury Law is pleased to announce that The National Trial Lawyers has selected William K. Berenson for inclusion in the seventh annual list of the Top 100 Civil Plaintiff Trial Lawyers.

Attorneys chosen have demonstrated superior legal achievements and shown to possess premier qualifications.

State-Bar-TexasI have been attending the Advanced Personal Injury Law seminar sponsored by the State Bar of Texas this week.

Yes, it is a webinar. So much of an attorney’s life is virtual these days, filled with court hearings, mediations, and client and attorney conferences that are conducted on Zoom or Skype.

I go to the three day program put on by the State Bar or by the Texas Trial Lawyers Association each year to stay current with the latest laws, cases, and techniques and attend other seminars  throughout the year.

It is hard to believe that another decade is coming to an end. My, how time has flown, right?

As an example, Mr. Berenson was attending the board of directors meeting and annual convention of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association downtown at the Hilton Hotel last month. He loves history and old photographs and spotted this one that captured President Kennedy’s last morning in front of the hotel.

I joined several hundred people on Saturday morning at the national headquarters of Mothers Against Drunk Driving in Las Colinas for its signature event, the Walk and Dash Like MADD.

We were there to pay tribute to those who had lost their lives in driving while intoxicated crashes, increase public awareness of this epidemic, and raise money. The comraderie was strong as families displayed photographs and personal displays, rebuilt motorcycles, and other memories of their loved ones.

Families held hands and walked and ran several miles together. A Dallas City Councilman eulogized a former city councilwoman and her daughter who were recently killed in a DWI crash.

Berenson Injury Law has filed suit on behalf of a husband and wife who were seriously injured when they were rear ended by a commercial vehicle on Interstate 35. Both could have died. They suffered multiple fractures, had to undergo surgeries and extensive physical therapy, and have a very difficult time recovering from their massive injuries.

The young commercial driver admitted that he looked away and didn’t notice the traffic in front of him slowing down. We intend to prove that he was texting while driving in violation of state and federal laws.

Berenson Injury Law has donated $2,500 to help the Humane Society of North Texas free animals from their severely overcrowded cages, just in time for Independence Day.

This offer to pay adoption fees for all of their small animals is valid tomorrow from noon to 6 p.m.

The Humane Society is located near downtown Fort Worth at 1840 East Lancaster Avenue.

William Berenson has again been selected to the 2018 list as a member of the Nation’s Top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel.
