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.

It was my pleasure to speak at the fifth grade graduation at the Rufino Mendoza Elementary School this morning.

I adopted this school on the economically challenged North Side of Fort Worth 13 years ago. I wanted to reach out to the community and support our children.

Today I donated five scholarships and have given a total of 20 to Mendoza students over the last four years.

To obtain one, students won challenging math, reading, science, writing, leadership, and music competitions. They submitted science projects, wrote essays, made speeches, balanced checkbooks, and identified musical composers.

When each winner’s name was announced, parents and family members shouted out with joy. One could feel that young lives were being changed and that their futures shone brightly.

Each winner was fitted with a cap from the school he or she wants to attend. You can see Harvard, Notre Dame, University of Texas, Texas A & M, Baylor, TCU, and University of North Texas caps in this photo.

The children’s desired fields of study were also impressive. They include environmental engineering, nursing, science, criminology, culinary arts, zoology, art, and computers.

Every year, I leave the graduation feeling that our city and our country are heading in the right place. Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world, as Nelson Mandela wrote.

I wish this morning’s winners, Josie, Tiffany, Tino, John,Emily, Paula, Amy, and Marcos, and all of our students success as they continue their studies and work to achieve their goals.

Berenson Injury Law has resolved a case involving a man who tragically died nine days after a car accident for the total available amount of $100,000.

This was a challenging case.

  • The man was in this extremely minor impact wreck;
  • It happened several years ago in Arlington;
  • The at-fault driver hit-and-ran;
  • There were no eyewitnesses;
  • The police were not called to the scene;
  • The man did not get any medical treatment in Texas; and
  • He returned home to California without complaining of any pain.

However five days later, the man began experiencing stomach pain and saw his doctor. Sadly, he died four days after that.

His uninsured motorists insurance company denied payment to his estate, claiming he had prior medical problems that caused his death and that this bump could not have possibly caused him to die.

We were not asked to represent the estate until one year after his death. Other law firms had turned down the case. However we have handled many wrongful death cases over the past 37 years and immediately got to work.
