COVID-19 UPDATE: What We Are Doing to Protect Our Clients

Fort-Worth-car-accident-how-much-is-it-worthIf you have unfortunately been injured in a Fort Worth car accident, this is probably the first time you have had to deal with the personal injury claims process. So you have questions about your legal rights and how a personal injury lawyer can help you. In my 40 years specializing in personal injury law, the question I get asked the most is how much money do you think I will receive after my medical bills are paid? It’s a great question. I have discussed this on my web site and blog posts, in a book and seminars I have written and taught to injury attorneys.

How to calculate how much money you might receive from a Fort Worth car accident

Since every car and truck wreck is different, there is no way to state one answer. The real answer can only be learned after the injured person files a lawsuit and a jury returns a verdict for his or her damages (but even then, the verdict can be and often is appealed to a higher court).

Welcome back teachers and students!

Today is the first day that some students were finally allowed to return to Fort Worth schools. This included the first graders at Rufino Mendoza Elementary. It has been my sincere pleasure to adopt this school on the North Side for many years. I hope our opening day with the new safety requirements went well. I wanted to thank the pandemic-weary teachers and staff and make sure that they had a lunch to get them off to a good start.

I have supported the school by

  • purchasing cleaning supplies and disinfectant for each classroom,
  • buying lunches, snacks, and books and throwing parties,
  • buying t-shirts and clothes and conducting an annual “Angel Tree” holiday gift project,

If you lose a family member in a car accident, it will probably be the most traumatic experience of your life. As you and your family are grieving, the last thing you are thinking about is talking to a personal injury lawyer and filing a claim or lawsuit for wrongful death damages. But you may have the right to receive payment for your losses you are suddenly facing. You may be wondering what to do and how much money you might receive.

We sincerely hope you are not reading this post because this has happened to you. No one ever thinks a fatal car accident will happen to someone they know and love. But they tragically cause over 3,600 deaths each year in Texas. Just in two days this week, for example, six innocent people died in DFW in two crashes:

Berenson Injury Law proudly donated to three of its favorite non-profit organizations today. Their budgets have unfortunately been slashed due to the pandemic.

Humane Society of North Texas

This wonderful organization has been a great place for North Texas residents to go to adopt dogs, cats, horses, and other animals. Just in the first three months this year, it arranged over 3,200 adoptions and investigated 200 acts of animal cruelty. That’s remarkable.

Getting your head smashed by a huge truck feels a lot like what a football player experiences when he is tackled and is thrown to the ground. A personal injury lawyer represents people with brain injuries from car wrecks and related neck and back injuries, not athletes. But a speeding truck or a blitzing linebacker both cause concussions. The brain is shaken and hits the skull. Bruising, tearing, or a fracture with bleeding and swelling can happen. Brain injuries from car wrecks and football games are all too common. For example, our client was driving this truck when another truck ran a red light, causing him to have surgery.

Brain injuries from car wrecks

If you have been in a car or truck wreck, how do you know if you have suffered a brain injury? It can often be difficult to know.

Another great month for Berenson Injury Law

We have been fighting harder than ever during the pandemic to get our clients the money they deserve.

We achieved many excellent results last month that we wanted to share since we are told by car or truck accident victims that they chose us after comparing our results and hundreds of five-star reviews.

Another Saturday night, another Fort Worth DWI wreck

Three people tragically died in a Fort Worth DWI wreck when a drunk driver of a pickup truck speeding the wrong way crashed into their car on NE Loop 820. A father, mother and their 9-year-old daughter from Dallas died at the scene. The pickup truck driver was helicoptered to a hospital in Fort Worth with life-threatening injuries. He has been charged with three counts of intoxication manslaughter with bond set at $100,000 per death. A lot of good that will do now. When will the next Fort Worth DWI wreck happen and how can we stop it?

Maximum Denton County settlement obtained

Our clients were driving their SUV on Interstate 35 in Denton County in December of 2017 when traffic came to an unexpected stop. They were rear-ended by a young man driving a company van.

The wife was rushed to a hospital complaining of pain to her head and neck. CT scans showed that she had fractured her C2 disc. The husband fractured his right leg and injured his right arm. Several months later, she had to have her neck fused.
